Stock Gifts

When considering a gift to Saint Ignatius College Prep, donors often think of giving cash. However, because of the enhanced tax benefits, other kinds of assets (stock and real estate) are used to make gifts. If you gift Saint Ignatius College Prep with stock, please be sure to include your name, the name of the stock, the number of shares and the date of the transfer. Please notify Brandon Stein at when a stock transfer is being made to Saint Ignatius. If you gift Saint Ignatius with a stock certificate that is already in your name, please call us for a stock power document. Your stock certificate will have to be signed and dated by those whose names are on the certificate, and we will need a brief note indicating your intentions of transferring the stock to Saint Ignatius.  Please click here for broker information and additional details to complete a stock transfer.
