For most people there are tax advantages available for donating stock directly to St. Francis. Moving the stock directly to St. Francis allows you to take a full tax deduction on the value of the stock at the time of the donation regardless of acquisition cost. This means you can also avoid the costs of selling stock and taxes you might pay on the capital gains. Please consult your tax adviser to ensure this works for your personal tax situation.

Bonds & Mutual Funds
Donating bonds or mutual fund shares may provide donors attractive tax incentives. Please contact the Senior Director of Operations for more information on how to transfer securities.
Planned giving is the process of carefully selecting the best method and asset for making a charitable gift. Such a gift can enable you to take full advantage of the tax laws to accomplish your financial and charitable goals. Planned gifts can be made through, among others:
Bequests by will or living trust
Charitable Lead or Remainder Trusts
Charitable Gift Annuities
Beneficiary benefits from IRA’s, pensions, or financial accounts.
Our Senior Director of Operations or your tax adviser can provide more information about these options or answer any questions you may have about making a gift or pledge to St. Francis.
For eligible tax years, individuals age 70½ or over can exclude up to $100,000 from gross income for donations paid directly to a qualified charity from their IRA. Learn more.
What is a matching gift? Matching Gifts is a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations, like St. Francis of Assisi. Companies of all shapes and sizes offer matching gift programs to their employees because it is an easy way for an employer to demonstrate they value the causes and organizations that their employees are most passionate about. Most companies match $1 for every $1 their employees give. However, some employers even match more!
Ask you employers (usually Human Resources manager or Office Manager) if they offer a Matching Gift Program. If they don’t – you should ask. It can’t hurt to try.
