Stocks & Securities

A Great Way to Give

Gifts of stocks and securities are a wonderful way to support Academy of the Holy Names.  The full market value of the stock may be deducted as a charitable contribution and you can bypass all capital gains taxes.

When making a gift of marketable stocks and securities, be sure to transfer ownership to Academy of the Holy Names.  Do not sell the stock or securities on your own.  This protects you from the capital gains on any appreciation.

3 Steps to Follow:
