Transferring appreciated stock certificates has a distinct tax advantage for the donor. If you have owned your stocks for at least a year and a day, by donating your appreciated securities, you avoid the capital gains tax you would owe if you sold the securities yourself. The deduction of gifts of appreciated capital-gains property is limited to 30% of your adjusted gross income, subject to the five-year-carry forward provision. The donor receives credit (and the tax deduction) for the full appreciated value of the stock. The expense to the donor, however, is the original purchase price of the stock. It is a win for the donor and a win for USCCB.
Donation of stock may be made to several programs of USCCB.
To transfer stock to Migration and Refugee Services, contact John Fichtel, Office of the Executive Director or call 202-541-3214 to notify Migration and Refugee Services of the intent to donate. To make the actual transfer, contact Steve Pinto at State Street Bank or call 617-985-7720.
