Gifts of Securities

DeSales University is pleased to accept gifts of securities.

Shares of stock and mutual funds may be transferred electronically to DeSales University by using the DeSales account at Morgan Stanley. When requesting a stock transfer, you will  need to provide your broker with the desired number of shares you wish to transfer, the DTC (Deposit Trust Company) wire number, and DSU’s account number.

It is important that you contact DeSales regarding the transfer, as DeSales is unable to determine who donated electronically transferred securities.

You are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the securities. This value is based on the average of the high and low price on the date of delivery (the date the stock is transferred into the DeSales account at Morgan Stanley).

You will receive an acknowledgment from DeSales University for the value of your gift.
