Continuing our conversation about gift methods . . . some members of our congregation prefer to make their annual gift in one payment and utilize a stock transfer to accomplish making that gift. To make a gift of stock to the church, contact Business Administrator Larry Ammerman (email@example.com) at 817/339-3884 for transfer information. Once the stock is received it is sold and the proceeds are transferred to the church bank account. You will receive a letter acknowledging your gift and it is recorded on your church giving record. There can be tax advantages to making a gift of stock as long-term capital gains can be minimized. (It is always recommended to consult with a tax professional.) Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) at 817/339-5098 if you would like additional information about making a gift of stock to FUMCFW, and I’ll be happy to answer any questions. Whichever method you choose, your gifts are changing lives through ministries at FUMCFW.
