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!
