It begins the month you desire and we will send you a confirmation each month showing your monthly donation.
Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds
A gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares that have been held at least one year can be claimed as an income tax deduction at the full gift value. In addition, you will avoid any capital gains tax on the appreciation. Under current IRS regulations, appreciated stock is valued for gift purposes at the mean of the high and low trading prices on the date of the gift, multiplied by the number of shares given. For mutual fund shares, the gift value is the last public redemption price or bid quoted on the date of the gift.
For more information about how to make a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, please contact our Office of Development at 217-365-9005.
Planned giving refers to gifts given through such instruments as including the Seminary in your estate, creating a charitable trust fund, or an insurance policy. For information and guidance on how to make a planned gift, please contact our Office of Development at 217-365-9005.
