Giving to Reed

Ways of Giving: Cash/Check, Credit Card, and Stock


Gifts by Cash/Check

A personal check is a simple way to make a gift. Checks should be made out to Reed College and mailed to:

Office of College Relations
3203 SE Woodstock Blvd.
Portland, OR 97202-8199

Gifts by Credit Card

Many alumni and friends choose to have their gift charged to a VISA, Discover, American Express, or MasterCard account. You may make a credit card gift online over a secure browser, or call toll-free 877/865-1469 and speak with the Office of College Relations.

Gifts of Stock

To give stock held by your broker or commercial banker, first notify your broker or commercial banker in writing that you are giving securities to Reed College. The stock should be transferred into the college’s Merrill Lynch account:

Reed’s Account Number at Merrill Lynch:  31107885
Reed’s Tax Identification Number:  93-0386908
Merrill Lynch’s DTC number:  5198

Contact Info for Merrill Lynch:
Diane Carter
Merrill Lynch
Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc.
1211 SW 5th Avenue
Portland, OR 97204

Please also notify Eileen Pettycrew (503-777-7583), gift accounting coordinator, of your stock transfer intentions. This is an important step: due to stock transfer privacy issues and the limited information provided as part of the transfer itself, Reed may not be able to find out who made the gift unless the college is notified by the donor directly.

To give stock held by you in the form of certificates:
Please contact Kathy Saitas in Reed's office of planned giving at 503/777-7573 or Or click here for special transfer instructions.
