Stock Gifts

Make a gift of stock or securities to St. Francis House.

Donating stock or securities to St. Francis House is an easy way to give, with additional benefits:

  • The market value of a gift of stock and securities is tax-deductible, just like any other charitable contribution.
  • Giving stock or securities has an additional tax advantage over a cash gift: donors avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the asset.

Always consult with your tax advisor for specific tax information when giving securities, as certain limitations may apply. To make a donation, please notify Campaign Director Sheila Zarba-Campbell at scampbell@stfrancishouse.org or 781-879-7377 with the name of the stock and number of shares being donated, as well as the expected date of transfer, so we can identify and credit your gift.

Then you or your broker can transfer DTC-eligible securities to:

Schwab Charitable
PO Box 982600
El Paso, TX
79998-2600
Account number: 3189-4571
DTC number: 0164
Phone Number: 800-435-4000

NOTE: Electronic transfers of stock/securities to St. Francis House’s Schwab Charitable account are made without identifying the donor. When you decide to make a gift of stock, please notify St. Francis House of the details in advance.
