Giving Strategies

The links below are available as a resource for you as you consider the best avenues for your philanthropic giving.

Gifts of Marketable Securities

Using publicly-traded stock to make a gift to St. Louis University High School can be a tax-wise method of giving, especially if the stock has appreciated in value since you acquired it.

Giving appreciated stock saves you tax dollars in two ways: First, you will receive an income-tax deduction for the current value of the stock. This value is the average of the high and low trading price on the transfer date. Second, you avoid paying the tax on the capital gain of the stock.

Gifts from an IRA Distribution

The Internal Revenue Service allows individuals over 70 ½ to make contributions directly from their IRA, up to the lower of the annual required minimum distribution (RMD) or $100,000.

With the changes in the tax laws enacted in 2018, many individuals will no longer itemize.

Those individuals subject to an RMD from their IRA will receive the reduction in taxable income whether they itemize or not.

To make a gift from your IRA, contact your IRA custodian and ask that your distribution be a charitable rollover to SLUH and include your name and address in the transfer.

Matching Gifts

You can maximize your charitable contribution to SLUH through matching gifts, a special benefit many companies offer their employees.

Through matching gift programs, many companies allow employees the opportunity to multiply the impact of their personal contributions. If your company sponsors a matching gift program, you can easily increase the impact your gift will have on students, faculty, and programs at SLUH. Most participating companies will match employee gifts dollar for dollar. Some will even double—or triple—match a gift.

Check with your HR department to see if matching gifts are available to you and, if so, how to proceed following your company's guidelines.

If you have any questions or want to alert SLUH to a Matching Gift you have requested, contact:
