Direct gifts of securities, especially appreciated stocks, can offer substantial tax savings. Federal income tax laws allow for deduction of the full market value of long-term appreciated securities, subject to an annual limitation of 30% of adjusted gross income. Any excess may be carried forward for five years. By giving appreciated stock, you may give a larger gift at less cost. For securities that have decreased in value, donors benefit from selling the stock and taking a loss for tax purposes, then contributing the cash to Incarnate Word High School.
Unendorsed stock certificates should be mailed directly to the Development office by registered mail with a letter stating the purpose of the gift. A signed stock power should be sent under separate cover with a copy of the transmittal letter. This method provides additional security. Please send to:
