give the gift of stock
There are many ways to support the UU Fellowship.
You can give the gift of shares of stock [and some mutual funds]. Discuss the tax advantages with your financial planner. In many cases, by donating shares, you get full contribution credit for the value of the stock and do not have to pay for the capital gains tax on the sale.
If you want to do this, contact the office first. You will be put in touch with The Gift Processing Manager at the UUA Office of Stewardship & Development. They provides a service whereby:
1-they will receive the shares
2- manage the sale of the shares.
3- distribute the cash per your instructions.
They do not charge a fee for this service, but will gratefully accept whatever you feel is appropriate.
