OTHER GIVING OPTIONS
Donating appreciated stock will cost you less than making the same donation in cash. If you sell the appreciated stock you must first pay the capital gains tax and then donate the after-tax portion. When you donate appreciated stock you can deduct the full value of the stock and avoid paying the capital gains tax. The church receives the full value of the stock because, as a charitable organization, it is not required to pay the tax.
If you are interested in donating stock or other non-cash items to Southland, please reach out to Pastor Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org
