 Give Stock

Making a gift from appreciated stock or mutual funds is beneficial to both you and the church. You’ll receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock or mutual fund. Long-term appreciated assets have a fair market value greater than their cost, since they were generally purchased more than 12 months earlier. If you are making a gift of stock or securities, please let us know so that we can verify the transfer and properly record your donation. Call Melissa Brumbaugh at (650) 345-1633 x 224 or E-Mail to get FPCSM’s Charles Schwab account number. Using this information you can instruct your brokerage to transfer stock to FPCSM.
