Support Gonzaga

Stock Gifts

Donations of appreciated stock or securities are an easy and very cost‐effective way to support Gonzaga. When you transfer ownership of holdings, you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value—and incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits). 
Two important steps help ensure that your gift is received and recognized in a timely way:
1) When making a gift of securities, it is helpful if you notify the school of your intention to do so by emailing, as donor name and information does not always get transferred when a stock is transferred from your brokerage account into Gonzaga's.  An email to, by you or your broker around the time you intend to make your gift, should include the donor's name and contact info, the stock to be donated, and the number of shares.   Again, this helps us more readily identify the donor when the transfer is received, as well as ensure that any donor wishes associated with the gift (for example, placing it into an endowed fund, or using it to fulfill an existing pledge) are met.
2) The following information is needed when making a gift of stock: 
Account name: Gonzaga College High School 
Account number: 749‐04H62 
DTC number: 8862 
Tax ID number: 53‐0204703

IRA Charitable Rollovers

IRA owners age 70½ or over have the option to transfer up to $100,000 to Gonzaga tax-free each year.  These transfers, known as qualified charitable distributions or QCDs, offer eligible older Americans a great way to easily give to charity before the end of the year. Moreover, for those who are at least 72, QCDs count toward the IRA owner's required minimum distribution for the year.

As always, we are grateful for your generous support of Gonzaga!
