Gifts of securities such as stocks or mutual funds afford donors an attractive means of giving to Abundant Life Christian Fellowship. Donors receive a tax deduction for the market value of the securities, computed on the day of their transfer, while avoiding payment of capital gains on the stock's appreciated value. Donors of stock are encouraged to consult their brokers or advisors. Following are the ways that stock or mutual fund gifts can be made:
If the securities are held by your bank or broker, it is usually best to transfer them electronically via the Depository Trust Co. (DTC) system:

If you have any questions about the donation process, you may contact Business Operations by phone at 650.625.1500, x122 or use the email link above.
