Stock certificates held by bank or broker
Here are instructions for giving appreciated securities if your stock certificates are held by a bank or a broker. You may also download instructions in PDF for transferring gifts of securities held in brokerages.
It is important that you notify MIT in advance of making a gift of securities. Without such notice, gifts of stock may be transferred to MIT with the identity of the donor unknown, making proper credit and timely acknowledgement extremely difficult.
Please use the form below. After you press the Submit button, you will be able to download a blank authorization letter to use in providing delivery instructions to your banker/broker.
