Gifts of Stock
When deciding to make a gift with securities, it is important to remember the following: When funding a gift with appreciated securities, transfer them to the Seminary for sale. In this way, you will not incur a capital gains penalty. If you are funding a gift with depreciated securities, sell them first and make the donation to the Seminary in cash. By so doing, the loss on the securities can be deducted on your federal income tax return.

For information about making a gift of stock, contact Carrie Call, Advancement Office Executive Director, at (717) 290-8738 or (800) 393-0654, ext. 8738, or email.
