Why should I donate stock?

Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits:

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated stock 
  • The full value of the stock is tax-deductible 
  • Can qualify for Arizona Charitable Tax Credit  

Note: Tax deductions are typically best when stock is donated directly to the Mission rather than selling the stock and donating the proceeds, which will accumulate capital gains tax. 

How to Donate Stock–Three Easy Steps

  2. Complete the Form.
