How the transfer process works

  • Once the Stock Transfer Request Form is submitted to your broker, your broker initiates your gift transfer via the Depository Trust Company (DTC) system, and the shares are delivered electronically to The Bank of New York.
  • Funds are then transferred electronically to the Pauahi Foundation’s brokerage account at Bank of Hawaii.
  • Pauahi Foundation is notified by the Bank of Hawaii that your gift was received and will provide us with a valuation.
  • Your gift is considered complete on the date the stock is received in the Pauahi Foundation brokerage account.
  • A tax letter will be provided for your gift.
