To Donate Stock
When donors designate Catholic Charities to receive a stock donation, in order to complete the transaction, it is Catholic Charities' preferred handling to take possession of the shares directly through our broker. We prefer this to having the stock certificate issued in Catholic Charities' name. To complete this, we request that you use Catholic Charities' DTC (Depository Trust Company) number:
Crowell, Weedon & Company
We further request that you provide us, in writing, a confirmation of the date, market value on that date, number of shares, name of corporation, your name/name of donor and your/donor's address for proper acknowledgment of the gift, along with any designation or instructions you/the donor may have given. You can use our FAX number, (213) 251-3497, to the attention of our Chief Development and Communications Officer, Alexandria Arnold, for this notification. As you realize, we also need this information to properly trace the activity and notify our broker of the arrival of the shares into our account.
