Make a Gift of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities are an excellent way to make a gift to the Foundation.  Donors receive a charitable tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the day that they are transferred, and they avoid taxes on capital gains.

                                                   “Giving a gift of appreciated stock provides me with a tax deduction
                                                    equal to the total value of the stock gift, and I do not have to pay 
                                                    capital gains tax on the stock, which I would have to do if I sold it
                                                    outright.  It’s a great strategy for my charitable giving plan and for 
                                                    my tax plan!”

Consider Making a Gift from Your Retirement Account

Recently signed legislation, Protecting AMericans from Tax Hikes Act, permanently extends the IRA Charitable Rollover Provision.  The provision allows individuals who have reached age 70 1/2 to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.

                                                    “Always looking for ways to reduce my taxable income,  I came across
                                                     an article that explained how to give to your favorite charities
                                                     directtly from an IRA account.  This direct gift reduces the amount 
                                                     you need to declare on your tax return.  This is a “Win, Win”
                                                     situation, since the charity receives the money and ones taxable
                                                     income is reduced.”

                                                   “Annunciation School was a very special place for me in terms of an
                                                    education as well as friendaships and special memories.  It was so
                                                    special, that my husband and I decided to raise our children in
                                                    Crestwood and send them to Annunciation School as well.  It is for this
                                                    reason that I have chosen to include Annunciation School in my will.
                                                    When I am long gone, I hope the school will be providing an
                                                    excellent Catholic education.  If my parting gift helps to make that
                                                    possible, I will feel that I have “paid it forward.”
