Your gift is considered made on the date that the securities pass unconditionally out of your control.  For listed securities, the value of the gift is the mean between the high and low quotations on the date that the gift is made.  Fairfield Prep normally records the gift at this value and provides acknowledgement of the receipt of the gift.
