Gifts of Appreciated or Depreciated Stocks
Benefits You and Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens
Your gift of stock can help all those who receive aid through Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens social services – and bring tax benefits to you and your family.
Contributions of appreciated securities held for more than a year are generally deductible at current market value, regardless of what you paid for them. Additionally, capital gains tax is avoided through charitable gifts.
If you make a gift of stock, won’t you let us know?
While Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens gratefully accepts all gifts, including anonymous ones, it is very important for us to know the identity of the donors of all securities gifts in order to give prompt and accurate credit for gifts received. Particularly in the case of an electronic transfer, it is often very difficult to obtain this information after the transaction is processed.
Also, as soon as a securities gift is received and matched to the donor, Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens sends an acknowledgment stating the nature of the gift, the gift valuation date and the gift valuation amount for tax purposes.
To properly process your gift and acknowledge your generosity, please contact Brian Gavin, Director of Development and Communications at:
