Automatic Monthly Giving

Have a continuing impact by joining our monthly Cornerstone Guild giving program. Eliminate reminder notices by signing up for our automatic monthly giving program (electronic funds transfer). It’s that easy!

  • No check writing
  • No postage
  • No possibility of lost checks

By helping reduce administrative costs, more of your gift will support Manhattan College activities. Monthly giving also provides the College with a consistent cash flow, which helps in budgeting the College’s valuable resources. Your gift may be pledged and spread over several months.

Donors may change their donation or cancel the automatic monthly giving program at any time by contacting the Development office. For more information on this program, or to enroll today, call 718-862-7278 or email giving@manhattan.edu.

Stock and Securities

Gifts of stock, securities and mutual funds can benefit both you and Manhattan College. These gifts can help you diversify your assets and minimize capital gains taxes. Contrary to popular belief, gifts of closely held stock can create the same tax benefits as shares that are publicly traded.

Maintain the stock certificate(s) in your name. DO NOT change the name to Manhattan College prior to your broker’s making the electronic transfer.

If you elect to transfer stock electronically, please note:

1. Your broker should contact the College’s broker:
Michelle Fritz
UBS Financial Services, Inc.
299 Park Avenue, 25th Floor
New York, NY 10019-6028
Phone: (212) 821-7122
Fax:  (855) 216-8769

2. The Manhattan College account number to receive electronic transfers is Y1-75003. The UBS Financial Services, Inc. DTC number is 221.

3. Please confirm your gift in writing, including the name of stock or security, addressed to:
Stephen L. White
Director of Development
4513 Manhattan College Pkwy.
Riverdale, NY 10471
Phone: 718-862-7548
Fax: 718-862-8021
stephen.white@manhattan.edu

For tax purposes, your gift will be valued as of the date when the transfer is received electronically into the College’s account. The value of your gift will be the average of the high and low values on the day of receipt, times the number of shares donated. Gifts are tax deductible for federal income tax purposes to the extent permitted by law.

Matching Gifts

What's better than a generous gift to Manhattan College? A gift that’s twice as generous, thanks to a third party's matching gift program!

Many companies offer employees and their spouses and even retirees a matching gift benefit that, in effect, could double or even triple your gift. So when making a gift to Manhattan College, please consider taking advantage of your (or your spouse’s) corporate match. Companies have various methods by which you can submit your matching gift request: online forms, automated phone systems or a paper form that you submit to Manhattan College. Contact your company's human resources office or check their website to find out what your options are.

Please email all inquiries to giving@manhattan.edu or call 718-862-7582.
