Donation of Stock


21st Century Stewardship: One More Way to Make a Difference

Did you know that each year, St. Mary Parish receives gifts of stock as a form of contribution and support? For some donors, this type of gift alleviates capital gains tax associated with a stock sale. Others enjoy the benefit of a pretax charitable contribution of required distributions from their retirement funds.  Speaking with your tax preparer or retirement and/or brokerage account representative is a great first step to finding out if making this type of contribution is right for you.

If transferring stock to St. Mary is a good option for you, it is a simple process and usually can be completed over the phone or via email. Please contact Steve Hejnal in the Parish Office at 262-694-6018 ext. 4172 or at, and he can provide you with details and instructions.

Thank you for your continued commitment to supporting St. Mary Parish!
