Gifts of Securities

Thank you for your interest in making a gift of securities to The Cedars.  Please select one of the two options for handling stock transfers listed below.   (Most people prefer to deal directly with their broker and so need only pursue the instructions for Option #1.)

All materials requested should be sent directly to:
Eric Kolben, CFP®, VP Investments, Wealth Advisor Advisory & Brokerage Services
UBS Financial Services
1 City Center, 7th Floor
Portland, ME 04101
e-Fax (855) 864-6553

Please be sure to indicate the stock gift is for The Cedars
.  If you have any questions, please call Mr. Kolben at (800) 283-1008 or (207) 791-5109

Option #1: Stock in an Account at Another Brokerage Firm
Donor needs to write a letter of instruction to the brokerage firm or bank which currently holds the stock, instructing it to deliver (free through DTC) to: UBS Financial Services, DTC# 0221. Please note that your gift should be credited to The Cedars, JHA Services, Account # MH 08388-BK.

Option #2:  Stock Registered in the Name of the Donor
Please send each of the following to The Cedars:
• A photocopy of a letter signed by the registered shareholder(s) stating that the stock is to be transferred or deposited to the account of The Cedars, JHA Services Account # MH 08388-BK. (Please be sure to include this name and account number.)
• The certificate or stock power, which should be signed on the back by the registered shareholders, appointing UBS as attorney.

It is very important that you advise Mr. Kolben at UBS that stock is being delivered and whom it is from, as we want to be sure to properly acknowledge your gift.

It is the policy of The Cedars to sell all gifts of securities.

Thank you for supporting The Cedars with your gift. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch with Tracy Ericson, Associate Director of Development at (207) 221-7007 or
