Securities and Property
Gifts of appreciated stocks and securities are a great way to support the church, potentially reduce tax liability for capital gains, and receive a deduction for the fair market value of your gift at the time of transfer. A Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your retirement account may be made directly by your broker to the church without incurring ordinary income tax. The church also accepts donations of real and personal property — houses, land, cars, boats, etc. Consult your financial advisor or attorney for tax advice and information regarding your specific situation. The church office, (919) 832-8324, can provide the information you or your broker will need to facilitate these transfers.
