Many people choose to make stock gifts to St. James. Giving stock held more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings. One, you will avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock. Two, you will receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift.
Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent giving option for stock that has appreciated substantially in value.
Transfer of stock can be an especially-easy and effective way to donate to St. James. Please contact your broker or financial advisor, who will ask for the following information.
