Gifting securities (stocks, mutual funds, bonds) to Whittier College offers tax advantages over cash gifts. You will receive credit for the full market value of the securities and will avoid capital gains tax. Effective date and valuation are calculated using the mean of the highest and lowest selling prices quoted for the securities on the date of the gift, which is the day the security is received into the Whittier College account. Always discuss donations with your tax consultant to maximize your benefits.
If your bank or broker holds your securities, we recommend an electronic transfer in two steps.
Share the following information with your bank or broker. Instruct your bank/brokerage to list your name in the transfer paperwork Whittier College may properly match the transfer to you. Send securities to:
