Stocks and Securities

Many of the College's supporters choose to make charitable gifts of securities to Bridgewater College. These gifts can provide much-needed resources for the College and possibly reduce personal capital gains or estate taxes for the donor.

Transfer Instructions for Broker-Held Certificates:

To wire transfer shares of broker-held certificates, contact the following brokerage firm.

Broker: Wells Fargo Advisors
DTC:  0141
Account Name: Bridgewater College
Contact Name: Angela Moats
Contact Phone: 540-434-9926

Please make sure the broker includes your name on the instructions.

You, your broker or financial advisor should contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at Bridgewater College with the following information:

  • Full name and address of donor
  • Name of broker or financial advisor who will handle the transaction
  • Name of the stock, including symbol
  • Number of shares you are contributing

Transfer Instructions for Individually-Held Certificates:

If you have possession of stock certificates, contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 540-828-5448 to speak to a College representative or send the unendorsed certificate to the Office of Institutional Advancement at the address below.

College Box 33

In a separate envelope, send a signed stock power (available from BC or from your financial services provider) to the same address. 

The gift date is the date the donor transfers the certificate and stock power to the College’s representative. If sent through the postal service, the certificate and stock power must be mailed in separate envelopes. If they are mailed on separate dates, the gift date will be the date of the later envelope.

Bridgewater College's tax ID number is 54-0506306.

Matching Gifts

Do you or your spouse work for a matching gift company? Corporate matching gifts provide a wonderful opportunity to double, sometimes even triple, your contribution to the College.

To determine eligibility, contact your employer's HR department.  If you are, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift.
