Long-term Appreciated Securities

Milwaukee Jewish Day School welcomes gifts of stocks, bonds and mutual funds. A convenient and tax-effective way to donate to MJDS is by transferring long-term appreciated securities.

By transferring long-term appreciated securities instead of donating cash, you can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities when you donate them. For example, let’s say you paid $2,000 for stock and it is worth $3,000 today. If you transfer the stock to MJDS as a gift, you will receive a tax deduction for the full $3,000. Please consult your tax advisor for the impact on your specific tax situation.

To assist you in the process, we have stock transfer forms available from the major brokerage institutions: Ameritrade, E-Trade, Charles Schwab and Scottrade.

If you are interested in making a stock gift or need additional information or assistance, please contact Development Director Sharon Saxelby, or 414-967-8312, or Business Administrator Christy Horn, or 414-967-8309.
