How to Give: Gifts of Securities

Gifts of Securities
With a gift of publicly listed securities you’ll not only save on taxes, you may also save a few lives. 

IRA Charitable Rollover
Individuals 70.5 years or older can make a tax-free direct transfer from their qualified IRA to the West Side Catholic Center. 

Securities and Real Estate
Gifts of appreciated property, such as securities or real estate, can provide even greater tax benefits to you than an equivalent gift in cash, especially when the appreciated property has been held for more than one year. 

Tangible Personal Property
When you donate a gift of tangible personal property — such as works of art, rare books, or other items of value — you are generally entitled to a charitable tax deduction.
