Additional Information about making a gift of stock

PLEASE NOTE: Your gift will be dated according to the day the shares enter the YMCA of Greater Whittier’s clearing account at Morgan Stanley. The value of your gift will be based on that date. At busy times of the year, the DTC system can back up.

Year-end gifts: Be sure to allow extra time for the transfer from your broker’s account to the Y’s Morgan Stanley account, and emphasize to your broker the importance of completing the transfer by December 31. When the 31st falls on a weekend, the transfer should be completed by the preceding Friday.
