Instructions for transferring shares from another firm into the BASTYR UNIVERSITY brokerage account at Merrill Lynch.  

 A Letter of Authorization should be signed by anyone listed on your account. Your financial advisor/broker can assist. 

The letter of authorization should include:  

  1. The name and number of shares to be delivered  
  2. For the account of:

If you’ll let us know when the shares have been transferred, we will alert our finance department so we can provide you with a donation receipt. 

Please note: Bastyr typically sells stocks once they are received. Your donor receipt letter from Bastyr will values the stock at the average price between the value of stock on day of donation and the value of stock on the day Bastyr sells the stock.
