Stocks and Wire Transfers

For gifts of securities used to fund a trust or to contribute to an existing trust, please contact the Treasury Office for further instructions.

After you instruct your broker to make the stock transfer, we ask that you call (414) 288-3739 to let us know of the gift. Unfortunately, when securities are transferred electronically, the donor’s name is not always included in the transfer information. By letting us know of your gift, we will be able to properly match the stock that we received with your gift record.

Please call or write to us with the following information:

  • Name of stock transferred
  • Number of shares
  • Brokerage firm stock transferred from
  • Approximate date of transfer
  • How you would like the gift used at Marquette University

Please contact Amanda Cose at (414) 288-4467 or if you are interested in making a gift by wire transfer.

Please contact Treasury Services for wire instructions on receiving foreign currency.
