The "date of gift" is the date the securities are no longer under the control of the donor (i.e., when the security is deposited in CCA’s UBS account or other brokerage account, or when a stock certificate is actually issued in CCA's name).

The valuation of the gift is determined as the mean average of the high and low quoted prices on the date of gift.
