Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities can be the best way for many people to make a gift to Christ the King Prep, particularly if the securities have grown in value. Typically, a sale of appreciated securities results in a tax on the amount that the securities have increased. This means that you are allowed to keep only a portion of the profit. You can donate these appreciated securities to Christ the King and avoid the capital gains tax while also earning a charitable deduction on the full value of the securities, even the portion that has increased in value. You can direct your gift to a specific purpose such as the Rey of Hope Scholarship Fund or Annual Fund. If a gift of appreciated securities makes sense for you, please make note of the information on this page.
