The Archdiocese of Los Angeles also has a wire account; please contact Doreen Rodriguez at 213-637-7267 or DRodriguez@la-archdiocese.org for instructions.

Gifts of appreciated securities, stocks, and bonds also provide considerable tax advantages when transferred before they are sold. If you have held your securities for more than one year, you may find that your gift will provide a twofold tax benefit, creating an income-tax deduction as well as helping avoid the capital-gains tax that would have been due on their sale.  If you wish to transfer stocks from a broker’s account, please click here​. Please complete the form and send it to the contact person(s) listed on the form as well as your broker to initiate the transfer.
