  • Matching Gifts

    Many employers participate in a corporate matching gift program as an added benefit to their employees.  In some cases, the corporate match may double or triple your gift. 

    You may qualify for a matching gift if you are:

    • a current employee of a matching gift company or subsidiary
    • a retired employee
    • the spouse of an employee
    • the child of an employee
    • a corporate director

    Ask your human resources or community relations department if your company offers a match.  You may also search for your company in the matching gift section of our online donation form. 

    There are varying processes at each organization for completing the match, and your human resource department can help you learn the process at your organization.

    For more information or questions on matching gifts please contact:

  • 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. 

    Information to include with the transfer request to your broker: 

    Transfer to: DeSales University’s account at Morgan Stanley 
    Attn: Carol Kline
    Phone: 610.391.6365
    DTC Wire # 0015
    DeSales University Account #604-012540 

    Please remember to notify DeSales of the transfer!

    Please include the following information: 

    • The number of shares being transferred
    • The name of the stock or mutual fund
    • The anticipated date of transfer
    • The desired purpose of your donation

    Thank you!
