Giving stock or securities, instead of cash, as a donation can greatly benefit both you and the parish. If the stock has increased in value from the time of purchase, you can avoid paying the capital gains tax by donating the security to St. Cecelia Parish. When the security is donated to a charitable organization, the total amount will still be eligible for a tax deduction. Always consult your tax advisor or financial planner to see if this option is right for you.
The form below contains instructions for donating stock. Provide the account numbers to your broker and return the completed form to the parish office.
