DONATIONS

STOCK

Donations of appreciated stock provide a tax-efficient way of supporting Sunshine Ministries.   

MAKING A STOCK DONATION . . . 

Your broker can transfer securities from a brokerage account directly to Sunshine Ministries. Please call us at (314) 231-8209 for the account information your broker will need to initiate a transfer.

 

Please notify us before you initiate a securities transfer so we can identify your gift when it is received and acknowledge it in a timely manner. Contact us if you want to donate securities held in certificate form. We will help you transfer them safely.

 

CAUTION: Depreciated securities (securities worth less than what you paid for them) should not be given directly to a charitable organization. Instead, you should sell the securities to generate a tax-deductible capital loss (which can offset your capital gains) and donate the sale proceeds. Your gift, whether cash or appreciated securities, will be greatly appreciated!

CONTACT THE DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT AT (314) 231-8209 FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES.
