If your employer or company has an employees matching gift program,
you may "double the impact" of your gift by requesting a matching gift
form from your company and including it with your pledge card.
Gifts of appreciated property such as stocks, mutual funds, bonds, IRAs and
retirements provide some the best ways to give. A gift of appreciated property
can significantly reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Upon the receipt of a
gift of securities, the Diocese of Camden will sell the stock and the value of the
gift will be determined at that time. It is important that YOU do not sell the stock,
but rather give it to the Diocese first. Those wishing to give stock may contact the
Office of Development for additional information (Rev. Msgr. Louis A. Marucci, Director
of Development, (856) 583-6125).
A gift of other property that is easily liquidated can be a significant way to make a
gift to the HOUSE OF CHARITY - BISHOP'S ANNUAL APPEAL, while reducing capital gains taxes.
