Gifts of Stocks and Bonds
Donating appreciated securities is another way of helping Prep while also providing potential tax advantages for you.  For example: If you purchased stock may years ago for $1,000, and it is now worth $10,000, an outright gift of that stock to St. Francis Prep would result in a charitable deduction of $10,000.  You would also avoid paying capital gains tax on the $9,000 of appreciation. 

Electronic Transfers of Stock
To make an electronic transfer of stock, please provide your brokerage firm with the following information:

Please note: In order to ensure that your gift is credited properly, please call the SFP Development Office at (718) 423-8810, ext. 269 and let us know that the transfer is in process. Please provide the donor’s name, the name of the securities, and number of shares being transferred.
