Give a Gift of Securities
Securities are the most common form of property given to non-profit institutions. St. Anne's-Belfield School welcomes gifts of stocks, bonds, and shares of mutual funds. By donating appreciated stocks directly to St. Anne’s-Belfield, you can avoid the capital gains tax that would be incurred if you sold the securities. When a gift of securities is made, donors are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the full, fair-market value of the stock for the year the gift is made. The fair-market value is determined by the mean of the high and low sales prices on the date the stock is received by St. Anne's-Belfield School. For stock transfer instructions, please click here.
