  • Gifts of Stock


    Publicly traded securities are the most common form of non-cash charitable gift asset. The most favorable tax treatment is generated by gifts of appreciated, long-term, capital-gain securities. Generally, the value of your charitable deduction will be equal to the average of the highest and lowest selling prices of the stock on the date the gift is completed. For purposes of calculating your charitable deduction for gifts of stock, you should contact your tax or financial advisor.

  • Donations of New Computer Equipment


    The State of Louisiana offers an attractive tax incentive to encourage donors to give gifts of new computer equipment or technology to educational institutions, such as Country Day. Under this program (LA R.S. 47:37), the State of Louisiana offers a special tax benefit to donors of new computer equipment to educational institutions whereby a donor gets a state income tax credit of 40% of the value of the donation. The donor also receives a corresponding federal tax deduction for the full value of the equipment. When considering such a donation, always consult your own financial or tax advisor. For more information on how you can support technology at Country Day and benefit from this tax credit, contact the Country Day Development Office at (504) 828-3408.
