Transfer of Stock

There are several ways to transfer your appreciated securities, but the most efficient is a direct transfer, via DTC, from your brokerage account to Blake's account at UBS.

In a simple letter to your broker, indicate the type of securities you wish to transfer and instruct them to include your name when making the transfer. Please provide the following information:

Name of Brokerage: UBS
Broker: Michael B. Block
Phone: 612-303-5842
Email: michael.b.block@ubs.com
Account Number: 7A-01758
DTC: 0221

It is helpful to let the Advancement Office know the type of stock, number of shares or approximate value of the gift and the correct designation (Blake Fund or special contribution, etcetera.) of your gift. If you plan to donate mutual fund shares or transfer stock certificates, please know these transactions require special handling.

To ensure your gift is credited in the current calendar year, please initiate your stock transfer with your broker at least ten days prior to December 31.

Further details can be given by calling Blake’s Advancement Office at 952-988-3440.

Donor Advised Fund

Equivalent to a charitable savings account, gifts to a donor advised fund qualify for tax deduction without immediately having to choose the charities you want to support, or retain records of separate contributions once you do. For more information, please call Blake’s Chief Advancement Officer Rebecca Schubring at 952-988-3432.
