Transferring Stock Certificates:  At your local bank, ask for as many stock power assignment forms as there are stock certificates to be transferred. A bank officer must sign these forms (only a signature, nothing on the back of the form, no date, etc.) to authenticate them. At that time, mail two separate envelopes to W&L (attn: Treasurer's Office): one with the certificates and the other with the stock power assignment forms (with bank signature authorization). The date of the gift will be the date of the postmark, and the value will be the mean value of the stock on the date of the gift.
