Stock Gifts

Gifts of appreciated stock may offer a better tax advantage than the gift of cash. Your investment into the life of a child through a gift of stock will be life-changing.

By donating the stock or property directly to BCH, you eliminate the capital gains tax you would pay if you sell it. If you have held the stock for more than one year, your gift will be deductible at its full market value on the date it is received.

Benefits of gifts of stocks and bonds

  • Avoid paying capital gains tax on the sale of appreciated stock

  • Receive a charitable income tax deduction

How to make a gift of stocks and bonds

By electronic transfer - Please contact us for instructions on how you can transfer stock or bonds from your brokerage or investment account to Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina.

By certified mail - If you hold securities in certificate form, you will need to mail two envelopes separately to complete your gift. In the first envelope, place the unsigned stock certificate(s). In the other envelope, include a signed stock power for each certificate. You may obtain this power from your broker or bank. Please remember to use certified mail.

Be sure to call our office if you plan to make a stock gift. Often the broker will not inform us of the donor making the gift. For questions about stock gifts or to expedite your stock gift call Sam Barefoot at 336-474-1224
