Gift of stocks or mutual funds

Many people are surprised and pleased to learn that donating appreciated securities that you have owned for at least a year is one of the best and easiest ways to maximize your gifts to the Marian Fathers and other causes you care about.


  • If you donate appreciated securities directly to charity, you do not incur capital gains tax, so your gift is at least 20% more valuable than if you sell your investment and then donate the after-tax proceeds.
  • Your gift is tax deductible for its full value on the date of your gift.
