Please also notify Knox of your plans to make a stock gift by emailing the information to In the email, include your name, the stocks you plan to give, and how you'd like the College to use your gift (i.e., Knox Fund, etc.). As brokerage houses often do not include donor names with the information sent to Knox, this will help us identify and thank you for your gift more easily.

As transfers of securities often take several days to accomplish, please begin the transfer as early as possible before the end of the calendar year in order to ensure your gift is considered deductible for the 2019 tax year.
