You can avoid a tax liability and support Notre Dame San Jose.
Donating a highly appreciated asset may allow you to avoid a significant portion of your tax liability while still receiving a charitable deduction. The gift of an appreciated asset is also a powerful way to support the mission of Notre Dame San Jose.
How Stock Donations Benefit You.
- A federal income tax charitable deduction when you itemize
- Deduct the full fair market value if you’ve held the stock for at least one year
- Use your deduction up to 30% of your adjusted gross income; carry any unused deduction forward for up to five additional years
- Avoid paying capital gains tax on all stock donated to Notre Dame High School
