Your generosity fuels Converse’s momentum as we soar to new heights as an institution. You can make your gift in a variety of ways:


Online Giving Form

Our Online Form enables you to easily pledge your gifts online. For your convenience, you now have the ability to make your pledge payment monthly or annually. Just select reoccurring donation on the form and chose which method you prefer. Once the form is completed, an e-mail confirmation from the College will be sent to you.

Members of our team will work with you to make a gift of securities. For more information, contact Lisa Marchi at 864-596-9011 or email lisa.marchi@converse.edu.

Electronic Stock Transfer

Converse can help you make a gift of securities. For electronic stock transfers, you should instruct your broker to transfer the shares directly to Converse College’s account:

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.
Contact: 254-761-6930
Fax number 888-848-5011
DTC Number: 2027
Account number: 25971703

Your broker’s instructions should include:
• your name as the donor
• the name of the stock and the number of shares
• the purpose of the gift (e.g., Converse Annual Fund)

Prior to making delivery, please have your broker confirm the above instructions with the Office of Institutional Advancement by contacting Advancement Services at 864-596-9011 or email lisa.marchi@converse.edu. Advance notice of incoming securities will ensure that all items can be promptly accepted by the bank and properly credited to the donor.

Physical Stock Gift

If you have the stock certificate in your possession and it is listed in your name, you may mail the unendorsed certificate and a separate signed stock power to the address below. Please note that you should mail the certificate and the stock power in separate envelopes for security purposes. We recommend mailing stock certificates via registered mail, as an additional precaution.
