Gifts by Stock Transfer

Stocks or Securities

Donating appreciated securities is a wonderful way to support The Bishop's School and may provide significant tax benefits to you. Benefits may include:
  • A charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the donated securities.
  • Elimination of the capital gains tax that would ordinarily be due if the appreciated securities had been sold on the open market.
As with any important financial transaction, please consult your legal, financial or tax advisor when considering a gift of stock or securities.

Matching Gifts

A gift can be doubled or event tripled by a corporate matching gift program.
Many companies have matching gift programs that support the causes their employees care about without increasing the obligation of the individual donor. Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar, and some will even triple-match a gift.

Find out if your company has a matching program by searching here and download a pdf of your company’s matching gift form or contact your company’s human resources department to obtain a form.
 
If your employer matches gifts to nonprofit institutions, such as The Bishop's School, you must complete their matching gift form and mail it, along with your gift, to the following address:
