Giving doesn’t always involve a checkbook. Consider donating appreciated stock to Saint Mary. You can deduct the value of thestock on your taxes.
Example: You purchased stock valued at $2,500 and 10 years later it is valued at $5,000. If you fall in the tax bracket where you pay 15 percentcapital gains tax rate, you will owe $750.
But what if you donate that stock to Saint Mary?
You transfer the ownership of the stock to SaintMary and claim the $5,000 value as a charitable deduction on your taxes, and you do not pay any capital gains tax.
A great investment opportunity.
