Gifts of Stock:

Elmira College welcomes and appreciates gifts of securities.

To be sure that your gift is designated as you wish, you must contact your broker or banker stating your wish to give securities to Elmira College. Specify the type of stock and the number of shares, whether your gift is designated for a specific purpose, and the date on which the gift is to be transferred (two to three days is usually sufficient).

Your letter must include the following information:

Elmira College's Broker: Morgan Stanley Dean Witter
DTC Number: 0015
Account Name: Elmira College
Account Number: 411-036836-017
College's Tax ID Number: 16-074-3996

Contact our office at (607) 735-1770 or email us at to notify us of a gift of securities before the transfer is initiated. We must receive this information to properly credit you for the gift, because stock transfers often do not include the name of the donor.

In accordance with IRS guidelines, the date of the gift will be the date that Elmira College assumes ownership of the shares. The value is determined as the average of the high and low listings for the stock on that date.


Planned Gifts:

Create a meaningful way to leave your legacy and honor your relationship with Elmira College by:

  • Naming Elmira College in your will or trust
  • Making a gift of securities or real estate

  • Establishing an investment vehicle that pays you income during your lifetime (e.g. CGA, CRUT, etc.)
