Instructions for Transferring Securities to Friends of Acadia
Tax I.D. # 01-0425071
1. STEP ONE: Please notify Lisa Horsch Clark, Director of Development, of your intended stock gift by calling 1-800-625-0321 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. STEP TWO: Prior to transfer, please call (or have your broker call) Helen Watson (917-343-1473) at Goldman, Sachs & Co. with:
a) your name
b) account name (Friends of Acadia)
c) broker’s name, firm, and direct phone number
d) name of securities
e) approximate number of shares
f) approximate value of securities
g) expected date of wire transfer
h) intended purpose of the gift (e.g. general purposes, endowment, etc.)
Please instruct your broker to wire our bank YOUR NAME and FRIENDS OF ACADIA’S NAME. Each year we receive some stock gifts by wire that carry neither the donor’s name nor our name. The “blind” stock thus sits unclaimed in our account at Goldman Sachs and delays your acknowledgement.
3. STEP THREE: Please have your broker wire the stock to Friends of Acadia’s account at Goldman, Sachs & Co.
