Wire Transfers & Stock Transfers
Please contact us for wire transfer or stock (DTC) transfers.
If you would like to make a gift of stock to the Dearborn Rotary Foundation, we would be happy to provide stock transfer instructions to you. It is a very easy process. You can ask your broker to initiate a “broker to broker” transfer. You would instruct your broker to donate the stock directly to the Dearborn Rotary Foundation.
We will provide you with the name of our brokerage firm, the brokerage firm’s DTC number, the account name and number, and the telephone number and name of our broker contact at the firm.
Your broker can then transfer the securities directly to our account. It is important that the securities are transferred directly to the Dearborn Rotary Foundation’s account prior to being sold in order to avoid capital gains taxation.
