Often a gift of appreciated stock offers tax benefits to the donor. Not only can the donor take a charitable deduction for the current full, fair-market value of the stock, capital gains tax can also be avoided on the appreciation.
Viewed another way, you may be able to give more than you thought possible when the tax ramifications are considered. The benefit to St. Luke’s School is the same whether you give cash or stock but the tax savings to yield is likely to be greater if you give appreciated stock.
For tax purposes, the gift is valued at the average of the high and low price on the day the shares are delivered or transferred to St Luke’s School. When making a gift of securities, please contact the Development Office to let us know of your gift intention. This will ensure that your gift is transferred and credited correctly. It is very important that your broker include your name when sending a stock gift electronically.

Many corporations sponsor matching gift programs that multiply the impact of personal contributions made by active and sometimes retired employees as well. Depending on your employer’s policy, these corporate contributions can match your gifts dollar for dollar, making this an easy way to double or even triple the value of your initial gift.
Matching gifts will be directed to the same area of support as your personal gift, unless company policies dictate otherwise. If your contribution generates a matching gift, you will be recognized for the total amount contributed, which would include both your gift plus the matching funds.
To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please check with your human resources department.
