Appreciated Securities

Gifts of stocks or bonds benefit Chaminade and you. Donors are eligible for a charitable income tax deduction if the stock is owned for at least more than one year. The deduction is determined from the value of the stock at the time when it arrives in Chaminade's stock transfer account. Donors are exempt from paying capital gains if the asset has grown in value. Call the Advancement Office at (516) 742-5555 ext. 443, and we can help you determine the best way to give appreciated securities.


Some of our donors choose to give in honor of any relative, friend, or a faculty member. You may do this online or by calling the Advancement Office at (516) 742-5555 ext. 443.

Planned Giving

Charitable gift planning, sometimes called “planned giving,” means making a charitable gift of annuities, trusts, unitrusts, and estate assets to one or more nonprofit organizations like Chaminade. It presents all members of the Chaminade Family — alumni, parents, parents of alumni, and friends — an opportunity to make a substantial gift. By naming Chaminade in your will or trust, you will provide a lasting gift that will greatly help Chaminade and its students. With an increasing number of our benefactors taking this approach, Chaminade will benefit continuously in the years ahead. The Chaminade Advancement Office is prepared to help. Please feel free to call Bro. Richard Hartz, S.M. ’59 at (516) 742-5555 ext. 443.
