Stock and Mutual Fund Donations
Electronic Transfer or DTC Instructions
Electronic, or DTC, transfer is the fastest and most secure method for donating securities.
Step 1: Submit the Stock and Mutual Fund Donation Form
Submit the Stock and Mutual Fund Donation Form to the UCSF Foundation Gift Administration Team by email or fax prior to initiating the transfer of securities to UCSF Foundation's brokerage account at State Street Global Markets.
This form serves as the notification of your intent to donate securities. Prior notification is critical to identifying your gift of securities as donor information does not transmit through the DTC system.
Your donation will not be complete until you notify UCSF Foundation of your intent to donate securities by submitting the Stock and Mutual Fund Donation Form, and until shares are received in UCSF Foundation's State Street Global Markets Brokerage account.
Step 2: Instruct Your BrokerIn order to properly credit your donation, your broker must include your name in the reference.
Transfer of Mutual Funds
Transferring ownership of mutual fund shares, unlike DTC-eligible securities that may be exchanged almost simultaneously between two legal entities, requires special handling and can take longer to complete.
Notify your broker or mutual fund company of your intention to donate mutual fund shares to the UCSF Foundation
UCSF Foundation will coordinate the process with your broker or mutual fund company
Your donation will not be complete until shares are received by the UCSF Foundation.
Transfer of Securities Held in Certificate Form in Your Name
Please contact the UCSF Foundation Gift Administration Team for information about the process for transferring securities held in certificate form in your name.
Credit Card Donations
If you need to accept a donor's gift by credit card and are unable to access the online giving form to have the donor enter their own information online, complete the Credit Card Donation Form and carefully follow the included instructions to ensure receipt of the gift.
If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact the UCSF Foundation Gift Administration Team.
