Valuation of a Gift of Securities
For listed securities, the value of your gift is the mean between the high and low quotation on the date you make your gift, which is the date the securities pass unconditionally from your control.
In the case of securities you mail, this date is the date of mailing.
In the case of wire transfers, it is the date the securities enter the School's account.
