Stocks and Securities

Transferring your investment of stocks and bonds into an investment in HST's students is a two-part process:

  1. Ask your broker to make a transfer from your account to Harding University's stockbroker. Your broker will need the following information:
    Charles Schwab & Co
    DTC Code: 0164
    650 S. Shackleford, Ste. 140
    Little Rock, AR 72211
    Tel 501-219-4324
    Fax 501-219-4334
    Account Name: Harding University, Inc.
    Account #: 4106-6374
    University Contact: Tim Jones (501) 279-4920
  2. Advise Harding University directly on the date of the transfer with the name of the stock (or bond), the number of shares transferred, donor's name, and instructions about where you wish your gift to HST be directed. The HST Fund is always a good choice for your gift, and a default option if no gift instructions are provided. Email these details to Julie Turner, or call Harding Advancement at 800-477-4312, ext 4. The gift is considered complete when the shares are received into a Harding brokerage account. The gift’s value will be based on the average high/low price for the day the shares are received.

Tax Benefits

Giving stocks and bonds that have increased in value may provide you with greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the securities (subject to AGI limitations), and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the fair market value over the original cost of the asset. Consult your tax adviser for complete information about the tax benefits available.
