Giving a Few Shares: Providing a Faith-Based Education

How Does It Work?

  • Donor or broker notifies the Diocese of Sioux City of his/her intent to donate stock. Notification can be done via telephone, e-mail, or fax.

  • The donor or broker initiates the transfer of the stock and obtains Diocesan account information for transfer.

  • MLTF assumes ownership of the stock and sells it for market value.

  • The donor receives an Iowa tax credit equal to 75% of the average value of the stock on the date of donation. This tax credit can be applied to Iowa income tax liability within the next 5 years.

  • The donor does not recognize the gain from the sale of the stock for federal or state income tax purposes.

  • The donor receives appreciated stock value for the donation of the stock for both the Iowa tuition credit and charitable donation for federal tax purposes.
