Make a Gift of Shares

St. Mary’s University welcomes gifts of publicly listed securities such as mutual funds, shares and stocks with the assistance of a professional broker. You can make a gift of shares to StMU by transferring them electronically and we strongly recommend you consult your financial advisor, securities broker or another financial representative to assist you in making the transfer. For more information or to initiate a gift, please email Heather Hadden.

Please note: Transferring shares between brokerage firms often takes 3 to 4 business days and price fluctuations can occur. It is St. Mary’s University’s policy to sell donated securities as soon as possible. Your gift will be valued at the closing price on the day the security is received in our account and you will be issued a charitable tax receipt for that value.

To ensure a charitable receipt for the current year is issued, please initiate your gift before December 15.


If you prefer to donate by mail, you can send a one-time gift via cheque or money order payable to St. Mary’s University. Send your donation using the address below.
