Corporate Support

We are fortunate to have many charitably minded businesses in Central Pennsylvania. Through the Vista’s Golf Classic, Vista’s Community and other events, we have several exciting sponsorship opportunities available to support individuals with autism. Also, corporations and businesses may choose to sponsor their own fundraising events and designate all or a portion of the proceeds to Vista. If you are interested in planning a fundraising event, please contact our Development Office.

Gifts of Stock

If you are physically holding the stock certificate, either mail it to Charles Schwab with directions that it be transferred to “Central PA Autism Education and Resource Center DBA The Vista School®” (Schwab account #6169-6761), or personally deliver the stock to a broker at the Schwab office nearest to you. (Please call 1-800-435-4000, the toll-free number for Charles Schwab & Company, Inc., to determine the Schwab office nearest to you.) In either case, the back of the stock certificate must be signed by you and must be accompanied by the notarized Third Party Release form. Do not endorse anything on the back of the certificate other than your name as it appears on the front. Your Schwab broker will complete the remainder of the information for you.

Print Third Party Release From


If you do not physically hold the stock certificate, and it is held by a brokerage firm (either Schwab or some other firm), the stock can be electronically sent to Schwab directly by using account #6169-6761 and The Vista School’s full name as provided above.

If your broker is Schwab, you will need a different form.

When stock is transferred to The Vista School®, please complete and return the contribution form to Joseph Alfano, Development Director.
