Donate Stocks

One of the biggest tax advantages in charitable giving continues to be the double benefit donors get when donating appreciated assets to Our Mother of Perpetual Help School instead of cash. By giving appreciated assets (like stocks held for more than one year), you'll get a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the asset and avoid any capital gains tax that would have applied if you had sold the stock and made your gift in cash.

Please provide the following information in your request when directing your broker to transfer your shares to OMPH School:

  • Our Mother of Perpetual Help School
  • 330 Church Avenue
  • Ephrata, PA  17522
  • EIN: 84-3960553
  • OMPH School's DTC Number: Participant 902
  • OMPH School's Account Name: The Diocese of Harrisburg – Donations – Equity Port
  • OMPH School's FBO Account Number: FFC to Account P72500; For Account PBDQ41373-004

It is important to notify Our Mother of Perpetual Help School of the specifics of this transaction (stock name, share quantity, gift designation) so we can credit your gift appropriately. Please contact us at 717-738-2414 Ext. 3 or
