    • You can benefit in two ways by making a gift of appreciated securities/common stock to Xavier Catholic Schools. First, you will be able to claim a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares; and second, you will be able to avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due if you sold the shares. When making a gift of securities, it is important that you arrange for a transfer of your securities to Xavier Catholic Schools and not sell them yourself. Please contact: Bob Biebel at 920-735-9380 to help facilitate the transfer.
