Certificates you hold
If you hold the actual stock certificates, you will need to sign a stock power form for each certificate you contribute. You may obtain a stock power from any broker or financial institution. When you sign the power, be sure to sign your name precisely as it appears on the certificate. For example, if you are listed as John A. Johnson on the certificate, sign it John A. Johnson.
When mailing the certificates, use two envelopes. In the first envelope, place the unendorsed certificates. In the second envelope, place the completed stock power(s). Send them to us on the same day by certified mail. Our address is:
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
501 St. Jude Place

Mutual fund transfers usually take a longer time to transfer as each mutual fund company has its own requirements for making charitable contributions. Contact the customer service department at your company to secure the forms needed and then call us at 1-800-606-3308 to discuss your intent. We may need to create an account with your mutual fund company before the transfer can occur, so allow at least one month for the transfer.
