Did you know appreciated stocks, mutual funds, and bonds in a taxable investment portfolio can be transferred as gifts to support Kingdom work?
Giving stocks (that you have held for more than one year) directly to a ministry provides a significant opportunity to avoid capital gains tax, receive a deduction at the full-market value of the securities, and simplify your giving. In fact, giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash! Download our transfer instructions below then fill our donations from to make this simple but tax-wise gift.
If you have questions about giving stocks or mutual funds, or would prefer to arrange your gift over the phone, please contact our gift planning team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-511-7173.
Here is how it works:
Step 1: Complete Transfer
If the shares are held at a securities firm or other brokerage account, please contact Feed the Need Missions to receive the necessary account information and required identification numbers.
Step 2: Notify Us By Filling Out the Stocks & Securities Form
Fill out the stocks and securities form letting us know you have started this transfer.
Receipts for stock gifts, provided we have the donor’s contact information and gift details, are mailed to upon receipt.
