Stock Transfer Instructions

Making an Outright Gift of Stock to Simmons University through a Broker

Before the transfer takes place, please fill out the Notification Form, then contact the Development Office at 800-831-4284 to inform us of your gift.

The following information is required by your broker to make the transfer:

Simmons University Brokerage Information
UBS Investment Center
499 Washington Blvd, 10th Floor
Jersey City, NJ  07310

DTC # 0221
f/b/o Simmons University
Account # 1B – D4815
Tax ID # 04-2103629 

Though your broker will be making the transfer, we need you to provide the following information to the Simmons University Advancement Office as soon as possible.  This will ensure proper designation and acknowledgement of your gift.

  • Your broker's name and telephone number
  • The name of the stock being transferred
  • The number of shares being delivered
  • The designation of your gift

We will provide the broker with the above information so that they can identify the shares being transferred into the Simmons account.  It is very important that we know who is making the gift.  Occasionally, shares are transferred into the account and we have no knowledge of the source.  This could cause a delay in crediting and acknowledging your gift.

Thank you very much for your gift.

*Please note: if you are funding a life income agreement (charitable gift annuity, pooled income fund, or charitable remainder trust), stocks are sent to a different location. Please contact the Planned Giving Office at 800-831-4284 for instructions.
