Donating Appreciated Stock has Significant Tax Advantages
Considering making a contribution or pledge payment to Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School? Have you considered donating your appreciated stock? If you have appreciated stock that you have held for more than a year, consider gifting that stock to MCPS. By doing so you avoid paying taxes on the appreciation, but you will be able to deduct the donated stock’s full fair market value.
- If you have appreciated stock (or mutual fund shares) that you’ve held more than a year and you plan to make significant charitable contributions before year-end, keep your cash and donate the stock instead. You’ll avoid paying tax on the appreciation but will still be able to deduct the donated property’s full value. However, if the stock is now worth less than when you acquired it, sell the stock, take the loss, and then give the cash to the charity. If you give the stock to the charity, your charitable deduction will equal the stock’s current depressed value, and no capital loss will be available.
Planned Gift – Please call Vicki Dickson in the development office at 334-272-7221 x302. We are happy to discuss ways to plan for a gift of cash, stock, real estate, or otherwise to Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School.
All gifts are tax-deductible. Donors are recognized annually as Torch Bearers in Nowadays (our year in review newsletter).
Thank you in advance for your faith in our mission and your goodwill!
