A gift of appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy way for you to make a gift to The Rocky Mountain Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
By electronic transfer - Please contact us for instructions on how you can transfer stock or bonds from your brokerage or investment account to The Rocky Mountain Conference of Seventh-day Adventists.
By certified mail - If you hold securities in certificate form, you will need to use two envelopes to complete your gift. In the first, place the unsigned stock certificate(s). In the other, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You may obtain this from your broker or bank. Please remember to use certified mail.
There are special rules for valuing a gift of stock. The value of a charitable gift of stock is determined by taking the mean between the high and low stock price on the date of the gift. Mutual fund shares are valued using the closing price for the fund on the date of the gift.
If you have any questions about gifts of stocks and bonds, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you and answer any questions that you have.
