STOCK POWER is a form that permits a Donor to provide the authority to change the name on a stock certificate from the Donor's name to the name of another party, such as a charitable organization, without using a 'transfer agent'. This form, together with the designated stock certificate and Letter of Authorization, given to the charitable organization will expedite the transfer of the Donor's stock certificate by the charitable organization's brokerage to expedite the sale and receipt of proceeds from the gift of securities.

CAPITAL INFUSION often refers to the cross-subsidization of divisions within a firm. When one division is not doing well, it might benefit from an infusion of new funds from the more successful divisions. In the context of venture capital, it can also refer to funds received from a venture capitalist to either get the firm started or to save it from failing due to lack of cash.
