Instructions for Electronic Transfers of Securities

Effective December 1, 2011

If you are planning to donate appreciated securities held in "street name," they can be transferred electronically to the Claremont School of Theology through the Depository Trust Company (the DTC).

The following instructions will help facilitate a transfer to the School’s Account at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney (hereafter referred to as Morgan Stanley).

You will need to prepare a letter of donation for your broker, stating the date upon which the stock is to be transferred, the name of the stock, and the number of shares.

The following information will be necessary to arrange for the transfer:

  • Morgan Stanley’s DTC number is 0015
  • The School’s account number at Morgan Stanley is 242-088510-019.
  • The gift is "FBO Claremont School of Theology."

The "242" prefix to our account number is important. It denotes the Morgan Stanley office in Santa Ana, California.
