Instructions for making a gift of marketable securities to the University of Idaho Foundation, Inc. via electronic transfer:

  • your name, address, email, and phone number
  • the name and number of shares of the security you are donating
  • the program or fund at UI that you intend for your gift to support
  • expected date of transfer

Step 2 — Call your investment advisor and transfer your security to:

Fax: 208-885-4040

Follow these steps to transfer securities that are in certificate form:

  1. DO NOT sign the back of the certificate(s). Instead of signing the back of the certificate(s), please sign a stock power form (one for each certificate). The stock power(s) must be signed exactly as the certificate is registered. If the certificate is registered in more than one name, all registered owners must sign.
  2. The signature on the stock power must be "Medallion Signature Guaranteed" by a broker who is with a member firm of the New York Stock Exchange, or by an officer of a bank (not a savings and loan).
  3. The certificate and letter should be mailed via certified mail, and the stock power form should be mailed in a separate envelope, to:

University of Idaho Foundation
875 Perimeter Drive - MS 3143
Moscow, ID 83844-3143

Along with the stock certificate and stock power, please send a letter stating that you are making a gift of marketable securities. The letter must refer to the name of the security (corporation), the number of shares, and the certificate number being transferred. If you know how your gift is to be designated, please state your wishes in the letter.

NOTE: It is strongly recommended that certificates not be sent to a transfer agent for re-registering in the university's name. This procedure is unnecessary and may result in needless delays.

The University of Idaho Foundation will issue a gift receipt for your tax purposes. The value of your gift will be calculated by averaging.
