By Stock or Marketable Securities

A gift of stock is a great way to support Christ Church – whether as your Annual Fund gift or as a gift to Endowment or the Capital Campaign. By giving appreciated securities, you may receive double tax savings: you may be able to take a charitable deduction for the mean fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift, and you could avoid capital gains tax. We suggest that you consult your tax advisor for complete details on the tax implications of your gift.   
If you have bonds, mutual funds or closely held stock, contact us to discuss a possible gift. You can make a gift of securities in your will, or use them to create endowment funds, donor advised funds, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts and charitable lead trusts. 
Please contact the business office for more information about transferring stock to Christ Church.
