Stock Gifts Held by You

You may give stocks/securities that you hold in certificate form to Purdue University by following these steps.

  1. Endorse each certificate on the back to The Purdue Foundation, Inc.

  2. Sign your name exactly as it appears on the face of the certificate and have your signature medallion guaranteed by an officer of a bank or your stockbroker. Without this guarantee, we will be unable to process your gift.

  3. Write a brief letter describing how you want your gift used, and mail it with the certificate(s) to:

    Purdue Foundation
    Mary Anne Schmidt
    1281 Win Hentschel Boulevard
    West Lafayette, Indiana 47906

The date of your gift will be the date postmarked on the envelope.

Note: Making a gift by having the certificate(s) re-registered in Purdue Foundation's name is not recommended because of the delay involved in the process.
