Provide a letter of instruction that includes the unendorsed certificate(s), date, and name(s) and address(es) of donors. Note that the stock gift is a gift to Johns Hopkins and the area(s) it will support. Include the signature(s) as listed on the stock certificate.
Request a stock power form from your financial institution. (If you are unable to obtain a stock power form, contact the Office of Gift Planning at 410-516-7954 or 800-548-1268 or email@example.com to have one provided to you.) Complete a form for each certificate, and take it to your bank for a medallion signature guarantee. Remember to bring a photo ID, sign the form in front of the bank staff using the same name(s) that appear on the stock certificate, and date the form.
Send in two separate envelopes by mail (one, the unendorsed stock certificate(s) and two, the stock power form and letter of instruction) to the address below:
