Other Ways to Give

Appreciated Securities

Stocks in publicly traded companies can be wonderful gifts to the Sisters and for you! Stock donations allow you to avoid capital gains taxes you would incur by selling the shares; protect your normal cash flow and budgets; and perhaps donate a larger amount than you might otherwise. For the Monastery’s brokerage account information, please contact the Mission Advancement Office.

Real Estate

Real property can be gifted to the Monastery and provide you with significant tax advantages. The charitable deduction value of the donated property is based on a professional appraisal of its market value at the time of transfer. Good, used care and trucks are particularly welcome as additions to the Monastery’s fleet!


Items ranging from electronics to furnishings to medical equipment that the Sisters need and can use or can sell quickly are of value. Good, used care and trucks are particularly welcome as additions to the Monastery’s fleet!

Did you know that in addition to monetary gifts you can give In-Kind gifts? The Sisters of Benet Hill were blessed in 2016 with two cars given as In-Kind gifts. Sister Helen Zecha, receives car keys from donors Barbara Neilon (above) and Sharon Schuh (below).


Did you know that a new Colorado State Income Tax refund donation program allows you to use some or all of your refund to directly support Benet Hill Monastery’s mission to be a place of hope and hospitality for the world? Use our registration number 20093006280 to give when you file!

Note: The Monastery cannot receive confidential taxpayer information and won’t be able to thank you unless you tell us that you donated.
