Benefits You Receive from Your Gift of Stock
The gift of an appreciated asset is a powerful way to support Xavier Mission’s work. In addition to receiving a tax-deduction, most importantly you’ll be satisfied in knowing that your gift is directly helping thousands of low-income and homeless men, women and children in New York City.
Your gift of securities will also entitle you to a charitable deduction when you itemize your tax returns. And in the case of appreciated securities, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift if you have held onto the securities for at least one year.
