GIFTS OF STOCKOne of the most advantageous ways to contribute to St. Edmond’s Home is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:
- You can donate appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual funds
- Total value of the stock upon transfer is tax-deductible
- No obligation to pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation
Your Broker Can Help Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to St. Edmond’s Home. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock that has increased in value and that you have owned for more than one year may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save by not incurring brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
A Gift-In-Kind is a contribution of goods or services that can be used to advance St. Edmond’s Home’s mission, or can be readily converted to cash and may qualify as a charitable deduction for the person(s) making the gift.
One way to double the impact of your gift to St. Edmond’s Home is to participate in your company’s matching gift program. The company you work for may match a percentage or all of your gift. Each company will have different requirements and procedures; your human resources department should be able to answer your questions.
