Stock and Mutual Fund Gifts to Cru
For stock and mutual fund gifts, shares are transferred into an account owned by Cru. A Stock Administrator then sells the shares. A check is issued for the value of the stock or mutual fund. Once the check is received, it is deposited and credited according to your intentions.
To initiate this process, you can use the Stock Transfer Form to instruct your broker to transfer your shares from your account to Cru.
Once a transfer has been made, it is very important to contact us with the following information:
In most cases, we are not notified of the transfer by your broker. Therefore, this information is required so that we can properly acknowledge your gift and designate the funds to the staff or ministry of your preference. It can be sent by mailing or faxing a completed copy of the Stock Transfer Form, emailing us at email@example.com, or calling a representative at 1-888-278-7233, opt. 1 then opt. 2.
