Check and Cash
Wire transfer/ACH transfer
Wire transfers are most commonly used for gifts made from outside the United States. You should alert UC Berkeley that a wire transfer has been made. Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers, on the other hand, can be sent only from domestic banks, and a unique routing number must be used for ACH transfers: 121000358. ACH transfers will not work from international banks.
Please contact us for help with a wire transfer or ACH transfer at either 510.642.6855 or email@example.com.
If the securities are easily and quickly traded, and may not require special handling, please transfer them to our account with Charles Schwab. For more complex securities or those that require special handling, please transfer them to our account with UBS Financial Services. (If you are unsure about which form/broker to use, please contact us at 510.642.6791 firstname.lastname@example.org.)
When you have filled out the transfer form, please provide a copy to your broker and send a copy to us email@example.com. We cannot sell securities without first identifying the donor.
