Give Appreciated Stocks or Other Assets

A contribution of common stocks to Loras College is a win-win situation.

Assuming the stock has appreciated in value:

  1. The contributor gets to use the higher, appreciated value (not the lower purchase price) for the amount of the charitable contribution for tax deduction purposes.
  2. The contributor does not have a taxable long or short-term capital gain.
  3. The College, as a non-profit organization, does not have to pay taxes on the gift or gain.

If stocks are held in “street name” in a brokerage account, direct your broker/dealer to transfer the contributed stock, via DTC as follows:

Transfer shares electronically to Loras College Account: 2FH00752, Cetera Investment Services, DTC: 0701  
Loras Federal I.D. number:  42-0680412

If stocks are held in certificate form, on the back, assign the certificate to Loras College, Dubuque, IA  and sign and date at the bottom. Attach a letter of instruction, indicating you wish to transfer the stock to Loras College and direct the shares to be deposited into Loras College Cetera account 2FH00752.
