There are many benefits to gifting stock, mutual funds or other securities to your parish or the Returning God’s Gifts Appeal. Making a charitable donation of stock allows you to avoid capital gains and still receive a tax deduction based on the value of your gift* (*always consult your tax advisor for more information).
As a service to parishes, the Office of Stewardship and Development at the Diocese of Colorado Springs processes all gifts of securities for parishes and other diocesan institutions. It does this free of charge to the parishes so that you can have the confidence that your entire donation (after broker fees) benefits your parish or the Returning God’s Gifts Appeal.
It’s Easy! To make a gift of stock, fill out the information below and you will be contacted by a member of the Stewardship and Development Office. That person will supply you with the necessary information to make your gift.
