  • Stock Transfer

    Gifts of appreciated securities are a great way to transmit assets to FMS as charitable contributions. For stocks held in brokerage accounts, your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to Fishburne Military School. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock which has increased in value and has been owned for more than one year may provide better tax benefits than giving cash.

    These transfer instructions will help you make your gift in support of FMS. Stock Transfer Instructions are available for download.
