Your gift of marketable securities to The Rotary Foundation offers you tax benefits. But more important, it helps the Foundation make an impact for people in need. Donors may transmit gifts of appreciated securities through their broker or by mail. In either case, we ask that you complete a notice of transmittal form.

Contributions to the Donor Advised Fund or to fund Life Income Gifts require separate stock transfer forms. Please contact Planned Giving at +1-847-866-3100 for the proper forms.

If the security is still in the donor’s name, the donor must provide a letter of authorization giving up ownership of the security. A donor may also transfer stock by completing a stock power form (available from any broker) and mailing it to Mellon. The signature(s) on the stock power form must match the title on the stock certificate and be signed by all named parties. The stock certificate should remain unsigned and mailed to Mellon in a separate envelope. The postmark date on the envelope is the date of the gift.
