    Gifts of securities

    Giving appreciated stocks or bonds that you have held for more than one year is one of the most tax-advantageous ways to give. With certain limitations, you can deduct the full fair market value of long-term appreciated securities and usually avoid the tax on the gain.

    If the stock is in street name in a brokerage account:

    1. The donor’s broker may wire the stock to Williston Northampton’s account at the following wire address:

    DTC #0015
    Re: Charitable Account No. 357-898629-517
    Williston Northampton School
    Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
    Worcester, MA
    Attn: Nancy Oldakowski
    (800) 451-4027

    2. For all transfers please put the following language in the memo field: “Williston Northampton School Gift”

    3. Alternatively donor’s broker may open an account in the school’s name and transfer the securities into that account. Please have the donor’s broker call the Chief Advancement Officer, Eric Yates at (413) 529-3306.

    It is very important that the donor or the donor’s broker call the Advancement Office (800-469-4559) to notify the school that a wire transfer is occurring. When the donor has possession of a stock certificate in his or her name: the donor should mail the unsigned certificate by certified or regular mail to Eric Yates, Chief Advancement Officer, Williston Northampton School, 19 Payson Avenue, Easthampton, MA 01027. Under separate cover by regular mail, the donor should send to the same address a stock power signed exactly as the donor’s name appears on the stock certificate but not filled out otherwise. In addition, the donor must also include a signed security release form (only the shaded portion need be filled in.) Both these forms may be obtained by calling the Advancement Office. Stock powers may also be obtained at banks or brokerage houses. Please note that in order to receive proper credit for capital gains tax purposes, it is imperative that the stock is sold in the school’s account and not the account of the donor.

    Donor Advised Funds

    To make a gift through a donor advised fund (e.g., Fidelity Investments, Charles Schwab, or a local community foundation), please complete the form below.

    Corporate Matching Gifts

    Double the impact of your gift! Many corporations offer matching gift programs to their employees and their families. Simply obtain a matching gift form, normally from your company’s human resource department, complete the necessary information and return it to the school with your gift.

    IRA Charitable Gifts

    Donors aged 70½ and over can directly transfer funds from their IRA to Williston; these funds count toward required minimum distributions without adding to taxable income (unlike regular IRA withdrawals which increase taxable income). Contact your plan administrator as gifts must be transferred directly from your IRA to Williston; please reference your name so we can identify your gift.

    Planned Giving and Bequests

    Planned gifts can provide income to Williston Northampton for years into the future while at the same time providing a benefit to the donor. For more information, visit our Planned Giving page, or contact the Advancement Office at (800) 469-4559 or by emailing Patrick Burke, director of advancement.
