The fair market value of your securities donation is determined by calculating the average between the high and low stock quotations on the date the stock is transferred to AU's ownership, multiplied by the number of shares transferred. For IRS tax purposes, the date of gift is the day shares are received into AU's brokerage account or the day stock certificates are signed over to AU as documented by verified hand delivery or postmark.

If you are an employee of AU, you can make a gift directly from your paycheck. To do so, log in to the AU Portal with your credentials. On the upper right side of the portal home page, under the "Personalized Links" menu, click on "Finances" and select Make a Gift via Payroll Deduction.
