Stock Gifts

A gift of stock enables you to have a profound impact on Gesu School, while maximizing your charitable deduction and minimizing your tax liability. Any gain in long-term appreciated assets are fully subject to capital gains tax if you sell them yourself, but not if you donate them to Gesu School. Your charitable income tax deduction is equal to the fair market value of the stock, and you avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the current value over the original cost of the stock. You may also save on brokerage fees because you are transferring ownership rather than selling the stock.

Donor-Advised Funds

Contact your financial adviser for more information. The National Philanthropic Trust defines a DAF as “a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and then recommend grants from the fund over time. An easy way to think about a donor-advised fund is like a charitable savings account: a donor contributes to the fund as frequently as they like and then recommends grants to their favorite charity when they are ready.” Learn more on their website:
