Gifts of appreciated stock or mutual funds may provide you with significant tax benefits. Please consult your tax advisor regarding these advantages.

If you wish to make a gift of securities, please first contact the Development Office at 617-972-1733 to let us know your intention. Since brokers do not always inform us about a gift, your call will ensure that your gift is transferred and credited correctly.

When you call, please have the following information at hand:

  • Full name of the donor(s)
  • Name of the stock
  • Number of shares
  • Date of transfer
  • Intended use (Annual Fund, Endowment, or other purpose)
  • Name and telephone number of your broker

The preferred method of receiving stocks is via DTC to our agent, Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc. Your broker will need the following information:

  • DTC Number: 0226
  • JCDS's Acct. Number: 0N2-889563 (Please note the character preceding N is a zero)
  • Account Name: The Jewish Community Day School Inc.

Our broker:
Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc.
