Gifts of appreciated assets, rather than cash, can be made to St. John’s College and may provide special tax advantages to you, the donor. Giving appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can allow for the avoidance of capital gains taxes and, in most cases, provide a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the donation.

Stock Valuation for Donors: Donors may choose one of several methods to value their stock gift for IRS tax purposes. Please consult with your tax advisor.
