If the securities are held by your bank or broker and you are making the transfer electronically via the Depository Trust Co. (DTC) system please contact the Office of College Advancement to let them know you are making a transfer and which broker you are using. Knowing in advance that you intend to transfer securities minimizes the risk of your gift being delayed because we were not able to recognize you as the donor. Next, contact your broker and instruct the transfer of your gift via DTC to the account listed above.
If you hold the securities in certificate form, you may mail the securities and stock powers (one for each stock certificate) in separate envelopes to the Office of College Advancement. Please be certain to have your signature(s) on the stock powers guaranteed by a certified bank officer and complete the section indicating the name of the stock, the number of shares, and the certificate number(s).

To make a matching gift: Many companies sponsor matching gift programs to encourage employees to support their colleges and universities. These programs are another way to maximize your support of Hartwick. Please check with your company to find out if they may match your gift to Hartwick College.
To make a donation from outside the US: We are unable to cash checks drawn on a foreign bank. If you have Visa, MasterCard, or American Express, you may find it most convenient to give online at www.hartwickalumni.org/give.
