Consider donating bonds, shares of appreciated stock, or mutual funds (in-kind) to the church for kingdom work. The stock/bond/fund transfer and charitable deduction happens at full-value (no capital gains tax to you, the donor) and they can then be converted by Messiah also without tax. You can apply the donation to your regular tithes or designate special initiatives or projects.
Contact the church's Executive Director to first coordinate these transfers to the following church brokerage account. The account does not hold value or manage assets and is used to transform donations to cash after asset transfer is complete.
Account No. 307-06837
Account Name: Messiah Lutheran Church
For technical questions regarding transfer logistics, you can reach the church's representative to the brokerage account at RBC Wealth Management.
