Giving Stocks, Bonds & Mutual Funds

to the Congregational church of Middlebury

For many donors, using appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, and mutual funds) is a desirable way to make a gift to The Congregational Church.  When the securities are given directly to the church, the donor receives a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift to the full extent allowed by law while avoiding capital gains tax.
