GIFTS OF SECURITIES
Gifts of securities include stocks, bonds and mutual funds. Publicly traded securities are easy for Clarkson to receive and use. Securities can be gifted to Clarkson in one of three ways:

  1. In person. The donor or the donor’s agent delivers the unsigned stock or bond certificates (still registered in the donor’s name) to Clarkson or to an authorized representative of Clarkson, along with one signed Stock/Bond Power Form per certificate. Note: The donor’s signature on the Stock/Bond Power must be “guaranteed” through a brokerage or a commercial bank, not a Notary Public. 
  2. By mail. The donor sends the unsigned stock or bond certificates (still registered in the donor’s name) to Clarkson in one envelope. In a separate envelope, the donor sends one signed Stock/Bond Power Form per certificate. Note: The donor’s signature on the Stock/Bond Power must be “guaranteed” through a brokerage or a commercial bank, not a Notary Public. Mail both envelopes via certified U.S. Postal Service to:

    Clarkson University
    Office of Philanthropy
    8 Clarkson Avenue, Box 5515
    Potsdam, NY 13699
