Stocks and Securities
Whether your stocks have experienced gains or losses in value, donating stock may provide a tax advantage. In addition, you will have the satisfaction of supporting the Sparkill Dominican Sisters as they continue to be present to others through Christ, in mission.
Benefits of donating appreciated stock
1. Take a charitable deduction equal to the market value of the donated shares.
2. Lock in investment gains prior to any predicted market down-turn without having to pay capital gains tax.
3. You may save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.
Would you prefer to donate bonds or mutual funds? The same benefits apply.
Thank you for your generosity
No matter the size or method of your donation, your gift is a blessing to those in need and to our Sisters. You and your personal intentions are remembered daily in the prayers of our Sisters, and every month during our celebration of Evening Vigil Mass.
