Many of our donors choose to make gifts of stock to DCEF each year.
Giving stock held more than 12 months offers a two-fold tax savings:
• Avoid paying capital-gains tax on the increase in value of your stock, and
• Receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift
Subtracting the tax savings from what you originally paid for the stock can result in a gift that costs just pennies on the dollar. This is an excellent giving option for stock that has appreciated substantially in value.
How to give stock to Disciples Church Extension Fund:
Stockbrokers require delivery instructions in writing. To make a gift, you will need to give the following information to your broker:
Gifts of stock or mutual funds should be sent to:
Brokerage Firm: Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc.
DTC code 226
Acct: C4W 605 565
Board of Church Extension of Disciples of Christ Inc.
Tax ID: 35-0953425
Please notify DCEF when you have completed your request to your broker to ensure timely processing of your gift.
For questions, please contact our Development team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-713-2521.
You may choose to support DCEF by including a bequest in your estate plan or by naming DCEF as a beneficiary of life insurance (whole-life) or retirement plans (such as 401k, IRA, or 403b).
Some donors choose to satisfy their philanthropic priorities through retirement plan beneficiary designations because, with the exception of Roth plans, retirement plan assets are typically subject to income tax when individual beneficiaries receive distributions.
However, any distributions received by DCEF after your passing will avoid income tax. We will not sell or share your personal information.
For charitable bequests and/or beneficiary designation forms, we suggest that you and your estate planning advisors use the following language: “…for the Disciples Church Extension Fund, a not-for-profit corporation located in Indianapolis, Indiana.” Please consult your tax advisor when planning legacy gifts.
