Gifts of Securities
Many donors find that a gift of appreciated stock is the most advantageous contribution because they receive a tax deduction based on the full market value of the shares, without realizing capital gains when the stock is sold by Catholic Volunteer Network. Please contact the Office of Development at 301-270-0900 or 800-543-5046 to learn how to make your transfer.
Tribute gifts, given in the name of a loved one, are unique expressions of thoughtfulness. At Catholic Volunteer Network, there are two types of tribute gifts: Honor and Memorial Gifts.
An Honor Gift recognizes a person on a special occasion, such as a birthday, wedding or anniversary.
A Memorial Gift offers a meaningful way to pay lasting tribute to the memory of a loved one while also extending sympathy to the family.
Your loved one or their family will receive a special acknowledgment that recognizes the honoree and the donor. The amount of your gift remains confidential. Please include the name(s) and contact information of those to be notified.
Please remember to ask your employer if they will match your charitable gift.
