APPRECIATED STOCKS AND SECURITIES
Donors may realize substantial tax savings by transferring appreciated stock to the School prior to the sale. Capital gains on the amount of appreciation may be avoided, and the donor receives a tax deduction based on the fair market value of the stock on the date the stock is transferred. To transfer stock, please notify Missy Ketchum, Director of Advancement ([email protected]) and Buck Williams at [email protected] or Franklin Beard at [email protected] to notify them of the pending transfer.
Please provide the following when transferring stock:
Description of security
Number of shares
Designation of gift (if any)

For the benefit of Episcopal School of Jacksonville
Account Number: V5 71786
The Donor name should be referenced in the notes section.
Please contact Missy Ketchum at [email protected] or (904) 396-5751, x 1109 for wire transfer assistance.
Yours may be one of the many employers who offer matching-gift programs which double - and in some cases even triple - the value of your gift to the school. Please contact your employer for matching gift guidelines for your company.
Whether through a bequest or an income-producing structured gift, planned gifts can realize substantial benefits for donors and for Episcopal. Contact Missy Ketchum, Director of Advancement, for more information.
GIFTS OF PERSONAL PROPERTY
Episcopal’s gift acceptance policy includes a provision for gifts of personal property as long as certain conditions are met. Please check with Missy Ketchum, Director of Advancement, on the gift you are considering.
If you are 70½ or older, you can transfer all or part of your required minimum distribution (up to $100,000) to Episcopal tax free, as the transfer is not the same as if you had received it as income. Up to $100,000 can count toward your Required Minimum Distribution (RDA). These transfers can be used to pay off a pledge or make an outright gift.
Every time you shop at Amazon, a percentage of your purchase of eligible items can be donated to Episcopal if you simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device and select Episcopal School of Jacksonville. The donation is made by AmazonSmile and is therefore not tax deductible for you, but AmazonSmile is a great way to have purchases you make from Amazon result in support for the school.
