Ways to Give
Corporate Matching Gifts
Corporate matching gifts are a great way to maximize personal contributions to Saint Joseph’s University and increase the impact of your gift. Across the nation, more than 20,000 companies set aside philanthropic dollars for matching gift programs. By taking advantage of your employer’s matching gift program, you can double or even triple both the value and impact of your donation to Saint Joseph's.

Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities often confer significant tax benefits on a donor. For example, contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for them; moreover, the capital gains tax is avoided through such a gift.
To transfer securities to the University via DTC (Depository Trust Company), please use the following instructions:
Saint Joseph's University Account No. 870-04728
Saint Joseph's University Tax ID No. 23-135-2674
In order to promptly and accurately credit a security gift to you, please ensure the transfer instructions to Merrill Lynch include your name and the purpose of the gift. You can also communicate this information directly to SJU by emailing email@example.com in advance of the stock gift being made.
If you or your broker requires further information or has questions, please contact Merrill Lynch's Pat Cahill (610-668-6167) or Jamie Policare (610-668-6123).
Including charitable gifts in your estate and financial plans can benefit Saint Joseph’s today or after your lifetime. Often there are tax benefits for you including increasing your income, earning valuable income-tax deductions and reducing your estate taxes.
