Stocks and Securities

For gifts of stock, shares may be delivered two ways...

  • Gifts may be sent electronically to one of the GSU Foundation brokers.  Any stock gift delivered electronically must be received in the Georgia State University Foundation's account before the markets close on December 31, in order for a donor to receive credit for the stock gift in that calendar year.  By completing the Donor Letter of Direction, DTC instructions, and the Stock Power documentation (as appropriate) the Foundation will be made aware of your gift intent and process your gift more efficiently when the stock is received.
  • Stock gifts may be physically delivered to the GSU Foundation. Gifts must be postmarked, or be in the Foundation office, on or before December 31.
    Please do not endorse the stock certificates. In a separate envelope, mail a signed stock power.
