Long-term, appreciated securities (i.e. stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares) used as a gift offer significant tax benefits to the donor. In addition to being exempt from capital gains taxes, securities that were owned for more than one year give the donor a charitable income tax deduction equal to the market value of the securities on the date of their receipt by the School for up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.
Please contact Ashley Faghan in the Development Office at email@example.com or 781-247-0195 for details on bank account numbers and procedures for making a transfer of securites. We will need detailed information on how your gift should be recognized.
Some donors prefer to pledge a gift to be paid off in regular increments over a specific period of time. Pledges may be set up by completing our online pledge form. With your pledge confirmed, you will be sent a reminder according to the schedule or time of year you choose to make payment.
Now your support for St. Sebastian’s can be automatic. Our recurring gift program allows you to make a significant annual contribution through smaller monthly installments. It’s simple, secure and environmentally friendly.
Additional support to the Annual Fund is provided every year through the generosity of corporate matching gift programs that make it possible for employees to increase the value of their gifts. The company match will be credited to you, and you will receive donor recognition for the total amount. Many corporate matching gift programs will match not only gifts of current employees, but also retirees, directors and spouses.
To find out if you are eligible, visit our searchable database for up-to-date information on companies that match gifts. Call 781-247-0120 for more information.
