GIFTS OF APPRECIATED ASSETS:

When it comes to charitable giving, donating appreciated assets is one of the most tax-wise things you as a donor can do to support the young men at St. John Vianney High School. In addition to receiving a charitable deduction for up to the full fair market value of your gift, you also avoid the capital gains you would have realized if you had sold the asset instead. Think of it this way: When you contribute cash, you are giving an asset that you have already paid taxes on. When you give stock, you are giving with pretax assets. This is a far superior way to give and is a demonstration of good stewardship of your wealth.

If the stock is currently held in a brokerage account, simply request that your broker transfer the stock into the brokerage account of St. John Vianney High School. Your broker will require that you sign a document authorizing the transfer.

If you have the stock certificates yourself, the certificate(s) must be signed and dated. In addition, a "Relinquishment Letter" must accompany the certificates when they are delivered to Vianney.

Please notify St. John Vianney High Schol that you have made this transaction. Simply give us a call and provide your name as the donor when making a transfer so that you can be recognized appropriately and provided supporting tax documentation.
