Call the Foundation office at (319) 337-4811 to inform us of your gift. Please be prepared with your name, the name of the stock(s) and the number of shares, the date of your instructions to your financial advisor or broker, the name and contact information of your broker, the account designation for your gift.
Provide written instructions for your broker to make a transfer to The Delta Chi Educational Foundation specifying the name of the stock and the number of shares to be transferred. If you inform the broker verbally, it is advisable to follow up in writing.
Please authorize your broker to give us your name, name of stock, and number of shares being transferred so that you may receive the proper credit. This is the only way our broker can determine that the stock arriving in our account belongs to you and can advise us accordingly to give you substantiation for the gift.
The date of your gift is the date on which you deliver your certificates and stock powers to a The Delta Chi Educational Foundation representative, the postmark date (if mailed), the date the certificates are transferred into The Delta Chi Educational Foundation name, or the date on which your electronic transfer is received into The Delta Chi Educational Foundation account.
Many employers (companies, corporations, foundations, etc.) have established Matching Gift Programs in order to incentivize employees to make gifts to certified charitable foundations – including the Delta Chi Educational Foundation. These Matching Gift Programs can often double or even triple your gift to the Delta Chi, which is a win-win for our undergraduates.
If your employer offers this service, speak to your human resources department about adding the Delta Chi Educational Foundation to its queue of support.
If you have any questions about the Educational Foundation’s matching gift program, contact Claudia Jansenius at 319.337.4811.
