Mount St. Joseph University welcomes your gift of stock. It's an attractive giving option that benefits both the charity and the donor. If the charitable gift is appreciated stock, it produces two tax benefits for the donor: an income tax deduction and bypass of capital gain. There are three methods for delivering a gift of stock:

  • If mailed, the postmark date on the registered mail envelope.
  • If delivered by hand, the date of physical delivery.
