Invest by sending a check

You can also buy Vanguard fund shares by mailing us a check. Use our online process to generate a printable customized form. The Vanguard mailing address will appear on the form. Note: If you have a brokerage account, you must select your settlement fund in the 1. Where's the money going? section in order to see the option to purchase by check. Once deposited, you'll be able to move that money to other mutual funds.

Select I'll send Vanguard a check from the drop down menu in step 2. Where's the money coming from?

  • Don't send a check without a purchase form.
  • Make your personal check payable to Vanguard. Don't use a future-dated check, starter check, third-party check, or traveler's check.
  • Be sure to sign your check. Written and number amounts must match.
  • If you're submitting an employer's check, simply enclose it without endorsing it.
  • Don't include additional forms or hand-written instructions with your check.
