Donate Securities

The Archdiocese of Hartford gratefully accepts gifts of appreciated securities to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, your local parish, Catholic school, or to any ministry or agency of the Archdiocese. These appreciated stock gifts may allow you to avoid capital gains tax if you sold the securities on your own and help save income tax. You may deduct charitable contributions of the fair market value of stocks and bonds if you itemize your deductions. Generally, you may deduct up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income, but 20 percent and 30 percent limitations apply in some cases. Please review the actual tax impact of this kind of gift with your tax advisor as well as the rules regarding this method of charitable giving.
