Gifts of Stock and Securities

To make a stock gift, notify your broker that you wish to transfer securities into WCAI’s brokerage account at Merrill Lynch. You will need to give your broker the following information:

DTC Clearing:            8862

Contact:                      Virginia Atwood

It is very important that you notify WCAI about the gift transaction at the same time you instruct your broker to transfer securities into our Merrill Lynch brokerage account.

  • A concurrent notification with the donor's name
  • The type and number of shares being transferred
  • The name and phone number of the donor's broker

This notification should be sent to:
