Making Gifts of Securities

The Golden Dome in Spring


Gift support from alumni, parents and friends has helped Notre Dame become what it is today, and will help it achieve its goals for the future. Gifts of securities are an important component of the benevolence of the Notre Dame family, and often confer significant tax benefits on the donor. For example, contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for the securities.

In order to promptly and accurately credit a security gift to the appropriate donor, it is essential that the transfer instructions include the donor's name and address. In addition, please email Lisa Kresnak with the number of shares and securities you are transferring. Download Instructions for DTC Transfers of Securities [PDF, 227k]

For information on other ways of giving to Notre Dame, including planned giving opportunities, please contact the University's Development Office.
