Giving Stocks and Other Securities
Giving publicly traded securities to Carondelet is easily done and tax-wise. When you give stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares that you have held for a year or longer, the IRS allows you to give without recognizing capital gains on the appreciation.
The recent sharp rise in the secuirites markets make this an ideal time to make stock gifts while reducing tax obligations. Mike Barry, a Carondelet trustee and parent of two alumnae, explains how.
How to make a stock gift
Transfer of ownership is managed electronically between your broker and the School’s broker, Morgan Stanley.
Your broker will need the following information to complete the transfer:
Broker: Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Incorporated
Account Name: Carondelet High School
Management Phone: 212-236-9196
Account Number: 5AX-03997
Once you have instructed your broker to make the transfer, please contact Elle Robinson, Director of Development at 925.686.5353 x194 or firstname.lastname@example.org to inform the school of the name of the stock, number of shares, and how you wish to be recognized.
Your broker will be able to provide a value for tax-deduction purposes. Carondelet will value your donation at the median sales price on the day the gift is given.
Bequests and Other Planned Gifts
You can leave a lasting legacy for future generations of Carondelet students by adding a bequest designation to Carondelet to your will or trust.
In addition, some estate planning vehicles, such as gift annuities, can provide lifetime income and significant current, future or estate tax savings. Your financial or estate planning advisor can help create a plan that will allow both you and the School to benefit from your generosity
