Maximize your impact by donating stock to Westwood Baptist Church
One way to give to Impact the ministry of Westwood is by donating stock. When you donate stock, your stock gift can have considerable tax-advantages, especially if you have realized capital gains on your original investment. Donating stock is tax-efficient ways to give.
Donating appreciated stock will cost you less than making the same donation in cash. If you were to 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.
Please note, you will need to consult your tax adviser or investment adviser for advice specific to your financial situation.
The donation is valued on the date that we receive the stock in our brokerage account. (not the date that you request the transfer or the date that your broker initiates the transfer---please keep this in mind for year-end gifts).
The stock is valued by IRS regulations at the average of the high and low sale prices on the date we receive the stock into our account (not the closing price). The full fair market value is the amount that is used for tax-deduction purposes. (If the church has any type of pledge or campaign, the full fair market value is the credit you receive toward your pledge or campaign.)
