How to make a gift of stocks and bonds
By electronic transfer - The most efficient way to make a stock donation to Roger Bacon High School is through an electronic transfer of the stock from your brokerage account to Roger Bacon's brokerage account. This avoids the need for additional time and paperwork that may result from physically delivering a stock certificate.
Roger Bacon's Brokerage Account Information is:
DTC Agent: US Bank – Attention Kim Whited
DTC Number: 2803
Account Title: Roger Bacon Endowment Fund
Account Number: 19-0530

Please instruct broker to include your name on the stock transfer gift, as US Bank only receives the number of stock and the amount. They do not receive the name of the donor.
By certified mail - If you hold securities in certificate form, you will need to mail two envelopes separately to complete your gift. In the first envelope, place the unsigned stock certificate(s). In the other envelope, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You may obtain this power from your broker or bank. Please remember to use certified mail.
