Contributions of Stock or Bond Certificates

Although Marin Community Foundation typically utilizes the services of Charles Schwab to sell donated securities, we have many brokerage accounts and may well have one with your brokerage firm. If you prefer to use your own brokerage firm and broker, we will need to know the name of the stock, number of shares, and the name and contact information for the broker handling the transaction. We will work with your broker to complete the transaction. If you have any questions, please contact Lizzie Cairns, senior administrative accountant at MCF, at 415.464.2514 or via email.

When you hold a paper certificate:

1. Mail your unendorsed (not signed) certificates to the Foundation:

Lizzie Cairns
Marin Community Foundation
5 Hamilton Landing, Suite 200
Novato, CA 94949

2. Send us, in a separate envelope, a signed Irrevocable Stock/Bond Power Form. Please do not mail the certificates and Irrevocable Stock/Bond Form together, as the certificates would be negotiable.

 

Contributions by Credit Card: To make a contribution using a credit card, you can use our online donation form.
