 Question

Is my gift tax-deductible?

 Answer Yes.  Boston Trinity Academy is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Tax ID#04-3580876.  In addition to receiving a receipt for each tax-deductible donation you make, you will receive an end of the year giving statement.
 Question

Why should I donate stock instead of making a gift by cash or check?

 Answer Donating appreciated stock may be more tax advantageous for you as you avoid any capital gains tax you would normally pay upon the sale of a stock.  Please consult your professional advisor for information on your specific situation.
 Question

How do I determine the value of my transferred stock for tax deduction purposes?

 Answer For appreciated stock held more than a year, your tax deduction is determined by taking the average of the high and low price per share of the stock on the day it is transferred out of your account multiplied by the number of shares you donated. Your professional advisor should be able to provide you with all this information.  We will provide you with a receipt noting the date and the number of shares of each stock we received.  You should consult your financial advisor for advice on your specific situation.
