Make a Stock Gift
Donating appreciated securities, held for more than one year, instead of cash avoids all capital gains taxes regardless of whether or not you itemize. To preserve the tax advantages of donating stock, you must transfer the shares directly to us. Please notify Staunton Peck, Director of Development, at (847) 269-5597 or email@example.com.

Our contact at Merrill Lynch is Michael Edwards: (773) 350-1090 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you hold a stock certificate issued in your name, contact us to request a stock power for your signature. Your signature must be medallion guaranteed by an eligible guarantor institution, such as your bank or brokerage house. Do not sign the back of the certificate. Ask us to pick up the certificate and stock power, or send them separately to Chicago Hope Academy, Advancement Department, 2189 West Bowler Street, Chicago, Illinois 60612.
If you hold “book-entry” shares of stock in a Direct Registration Account (DRS) or through a Dividend Reinvestment Program (DRIP) with a transfer agent such as Computershare, BNY Mellon, or another agent, they cannot be transferred electronically via DTC. Instead, you should obtain a transfer form from the transfer agent’s website. Complete your portion and send it to Chicago Hope Academy, Advancement Department, 2189 West Bowler Street, Chicago, Illinois 60612. We will complete our portion and send it to the agent to receive your shares.
Make a Gift of Mutual Funds
Mutual funds that you hold in an account at the fund company cannot be transferred electronically via DTC. Please obtain a transfer form from the fund company. Complete your portion and send it to Chicago Hope Academy, Advancement Department, 2189 West Bowler Street, Chicago, Illinois 60612. We will complete our shares in a Chicago Hope Academy account which will be opened at the fund company.
