Benefit in two ways by making a gift of appreciated securities/common stock to Saint Agnes School: 1) You will be able to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares, and 2) You will be able to avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due if you sold the shares. When making a gift of securities, it is important that you arrange for a transfer of your securities to Saint Agnes School and not sell them yourself.
You may choose to give a gift to Saint Agnes School in memory of a classmate, family member, or friend, or to honor a person on a birthday, wedding, anniversary, or any occasion you select. When giving a memorial or honor gift, Saint Agnes will send a card to the person or family acknowledging the gift. The card’s information may or may not list the amount of the gift (you may designate). The gift will also be acknowledged in the annual report of the Aggie Archives.
Please include the following information with your gift:
- The full name of the person you are remembering/honoring.
- The name to whom a card should be sent.
- If the amount of the gift should be included or excluded in the card.
- If you wish to have the gift designated towards any of our school departments or special scholarship funds.
Real estate held more than twelve months can be contributed to Saint Agnes School, entitling the donor to an income tax deduction based on the current, appraised value.

All gifts of Real Property must be accompanied by (i) an independent qualified appraisal; (ii) evidence of marketable title; and (iii) a Phase I environmental assessment. It is advisable to consult with your attorney and accountants prior to making a gift of this type.
