Wire Transfer

If you would like to directly wire your gift to Madeira, you can do so by contacting the Advancement Office who can provide you with wire transfer instructions. When making the transfer, please note the name of the donor and the gift designation. The Advancement Office staff can answer any other questions you may have.


Donating gifts of appreciated securities that have been held for more than one year enables a donor to:

  • avoid all capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the stock
  • qualify for tax deduction equal to the stock’s full fair market value
  • make a larger gift than might be otherwise possible

To make a gift of stock to Madeira, please contact Madeira’s broker directly: 

Mr. Robert J. Collins
Collins Investment Group
A division of XML Financial Group
6901 Rockledge Dr., #730
Bethesda, MD 20817
Office: 301-915-9630
Fax: 301-530-2850

All securities must be placed in Madeira’s name prior to being sold; otherwise, you will be responsible for paying the capital gains tax. Also, please be sure to instruct your broker to contact the Advancement Office at 703-556-8221 to let us know that your gift is being transferred.

Please refer to Form CRS and the affiliated broker-dealer Reg BI Brochure regarding recommendations.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations offer matching gift programs for employees and their families. Most programs match dollar for dollar, but there are some companies that match 2:1 and even 3:1. This is a great opportunity to increase your gift in support of Madeira. 

To multiply your gift in this way, please contact your human resources office to inquire about the method to have your gift matched by your (or your partner's) employer.
