Gifts of Stock

Chicago Shakespeare Theater offers a simple process for gifting appreciated securities. Donors can receive, in the form of a tax-deduction, the full fair market value of the stock at the time the gift is made, as long as the stock has been held for at least one year.

Follow these three easy steps:

  1. Please contact Steve Solomon at and alert us of:
    • Your name
    • The name of stock and number of shares*
    • The approximate value you plan to transfer.
  2. Contact your broker to initiate the transfer to our account:
    Account Information
    For electronic deliveries: DTC: # 0226
    FBO: Chicago Shakespeare Theater
    Account Number: NT2-122740
  3. Northern Trust Securities will document the receipt and sale of the donated stock and Chicago Shakespeare Theater will issue an acknowledgement letter for your tax records.

*Donor information does not accompany transfers so your notification to CST ensures that we can properly credit your most generous donation.
