Please remind your broker to include your name, contact information and special instructions for the transfer.

The value of a stock gift is calculated by averaging the high and low quoted selling prices for the stock as of the gift valuation date. The gift valuation date for securities sent to us via DTC is the date the securities are deposited into our brokerage account.
