Gifts of Securities

Donate appreciated stocks or bonds. You can receive a tax deduction for the full market value at the time of the donation if you owned the security for at least one year, or for the original price if you have owned the securities for less than one year. This donation option allows you to avoid a capital gains tax.

Matching Gifts

Maximize your gift to Trinity Foundation by asking your employer's Human Resources department if they have a matching gift program. Many employers will match dollar-for-dollar, give a percentage of the total gift, or even triple your contribution.
