Your broker should transfer securities to the United Way of Greater Atlanta via the broker account listed below. The Charles Schwab account is typically cheaper, and there’s an advisor available if you need help. If you’d prefer to transfer to the broker account at Truist, Wells Fargo, or Merrill Lynch, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Notify us so we can expect the transfer of securities and provide you the proper tax documents. The broker won’t automatically notify us, so please don’t omit this step. A fax or email copy of the transfer instructions from step #1 will suffice.
