Gifts of Stock

The gifting of stock to the church is a “win-win” situation for both the donor and the church. Since the church is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization, the gift will qualify as a charitable contribution and is tax deductible. This is a very simple and easy process that can be coordinated through the Financial Services office of the church.

If you would like to donate a gift of stock, or desire additional information, please contact Betsy Walker, 713.957.5806. On all tax questions, it is advisable to consult with a tax advisor or CPA.
