Give stock, save taxes, re-balance
How much further can your giving go by giving stocks and mutual funds?
When you give your appreciated stocks or mutual funds to NCF, we liquidate the asset and put the net proceeds into your Giving Fund. Then, you go online to make grants to your church or other ministries. This not only saves taxes, but if you still like the stock, simply repurchase it immediately, which raises your cost basis and lowers future tax exposure. Read more in our one-page PDF.
Kicking generosity into high gear
A former NFL kicker transitions from checks to stocks
For 21 years, Jason Hanson kicked his way into the Detroit Lions’ record books, booming countless field goals and extra points in a long and storied career. But life after the NFL is proving to be quite the adventure, too, as he and his wife Kathleen have begun giving appreciated stocks to their Giving Fund at NCF, instead of writing checks. “It’s really exciting because our giving is going so much further now,” Jason says. “Money that would have gone to taxes is now going to our favorite ministries, and there’s tremendous joy in knowing we’re giving in the wisest possible way."
