  • Stock Gifts
    A gift of stock saves two ways: avoid capital-gains tax on the increased value, and receive a deduction for the full market value of the stock at the time you make the gift. Please download our contribution of stock form, fill out and email it to Tracie Frederick, Director of Development, at, or mail it to Marillac Social Center, attn: Tracie Frederick, 2145 N. Halsted, Chicago, IL 60614. If you have any questions please call the Development Office at 312-278-4219.

    * Things to keep in mind:
    • To receive the full tax benefit, please ask your broker to transfer appreciated shares, rather than proceeds from the sale. If you sell the shares first, and then send Marillac Social Center the proceeds, you will owe capital gains tax on the appreciation.
    • The rule on capital gains works in reverse. If you make a gift of shares that have depreciated in value, you lose the tax deduction for a capital loss. If your shares have declined since you bought them, sell the shares first, and then make a tax-deductible gift of the proceeds to St. Vincent’s. That way, you still have the option of claiming the capital loss as a deduction on your taxes. (taken from Grass Roots International)
