There are two easy ways to give securities to F&M:

1) By the DTC Automated Stock Transfer System

To transfer stock using the automated system, you will need to give your broker the following information:

a. Depository Trust Company account #902 for J.P. Morgan.
b. For further credit to Fiduciary Trust Company International Account #P56059.
c. For the benefit of Franklin & Marshall College Account #440-56-3211.
d. Complete "Special Instructions" with donor's name and date of transfer.

Please call and tell us the name of the stock being transferred, the number of shares, and where it is being transferred from (e.g., Merrill Lynch-Manhattan).

2) By Mail in Separate Envelopes

a. Send the certificate - DO NOT SIGN IT - unsigned and therefore not negotiable - in a separate envelope (we recommend using registered mail). Include a note with instructions (i.e. "these # shares are my Annual Fund gift").

b. Send a stock power form that you have SIGNED in front of your banker, trust officer or broker (so your signature is guaranteed) in a separate envelope, with a copy of your note of instructions (use of first class mail is appropriate).

The certificate remains non-negotiable until it is joined with the stock power at the College. The date for establishing the gift-value of the stock is the postmarked date it passes from your control.
