Cash Wire

If you wish to make a gift by a wire transaction, please print and fill out our cash wire transmittal form and fax it to the Office of Development at 212.229.5588.

Gifts of Securities

Making a gift of securities is an attractive option for some. In most cases, such contributions offer the same deductibility as cash gifts while avoiding capital gains taxes. Please consult your financial planner or tax adviser for specific information.

To make a gift of stock, please print and fill out the securities transmittal form. Send one copy to your broker and fax or email one copy to the Office of Development at 212.229.5588 or

Automated Clearing House (ACH)

If you prefer to make a gift through an ACH transaction, print and fill out the ACH transmittal form and fax it to the Office of Development at 212.229.5588.

IRA Charitable Rollover

Congress recently extended the IRA Charitable Rollover provision. This legislation allows IRA owners age 70 and older to make direct transfers from their IRAs (up to $100,000 per year) to charity without having to recognize the transfer as income. In addition, such transfers will count toward the minimum required distribution that individuals are required to take from their retirement accounts each year. The existing provision will continue through December 31, 2014.
