Computershare Trust Company

    Good Afternoon,

    We have had a donor transfer stock to us using Computershare, a first for us.  I just received paperwork from Computershare that indicates that the stock was transferred into an account at Computershare that was created for our institution.  Has anyone dealt with this before?  I'm confused as to who is the legal donor of the stock, our alumnus or Computershare?

     Thanks in advance for your words of wisdom!

    Hi Mary, we've had an account for us at Computershare too, it is weird to have accounts opened in your org's name without you creating them, isn't it? We treat them like any other stock, and hard credit the donor. It's a just a different financial vehicle than your normal broker.
