Donate Stock

Thank you for considering a stock donation to the Cooperative for Education. You can transfer legal ownership of the stock to us two ways: through an electronic or paper transaction.

If you need assistance with either of these options, please call Fidelity’s customer service line at 1-800-544-6666.
