Other Ways To Give

IMB Ministry Advancement is ready to assist you with your charitable wishes. We want to help you maximize the use of resources you have been entrusted for His fame among all peoples The following are a few of the many gift options available. Please contact us to assist you in identifying the most beneficial option for your specific circumstances.

GIFTS OF STOCKS AND BONDS

Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock or bonds via a direct transfer to IMB. Giving a gift of publicly traded stock may provide greater tax benefits than giving cash and help you avoid paying capital gains tax. When considering gifts of stocks or bonds, it is important to carefully review your gift with your financial or tax advisor.

If you would like to make a gift of stock, please provide your broker with the following initial transfer information:

Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
The Morris Group at Greystone Consulting
700 Spring Forest Road, Suite 200, Raleigh, NC 27609
International Mission Board
Stock Gifting Account DTC #0015
Account #773-106998

Please inform Ministry Advancement of stock transfers so they can properly acknowledge your gift and forward information regarding your tax deduction.

REAL ESTATE

When you make a gift of real estate, you may qualify for a federal income tax deduction equal to the property’s full fair market value. This deduction lets you reduce the cost of making the gift by providing savings otherwise used to pay taxes. By donating the property to IMB, you may also eliminate capital gains tax on its appreciation. Please contact Ministry Advancement if you are interested in gifting real estate so we can connect you with an expert in your area to assess the property and begin the process of fulfilling your charitable wishes.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Intellectual property is an intangible asset that includes the royalties associated with copyrights, patents, trademarks and other forms. Tax benefits should include a deduction for the value when the gift is made. The value of intellectual property is often determined by the actual revenue generated. This means you will receive a timely deduction for the value of the property when the gift is completed. These specialized gift types require a unique expertise. Ministry Advancement is ready to assist you with your charitable wishes through gifts of intellectual property.

MINERAL INTERESTS

A gift of mineral interests (oil, gas, gold, silver or other precious metals) is an excellent way to support the work of IMB. If you own land with mineral rights, a gift of all or part of your land can produce a direct tax benefit to you and support IMB. You will receive a charitable income tax deduction in the year you make your gift. If the income from your oil or mineral rights is pushing you into the upper tax brackets with higher rates and fewer deductions, consider a gift of your royalties. By gifting a portion or all of your royalties, you may lower your income and reduce taxes while achieving your goals. If you are interested in a gift of minerals, please contact Ministry Advancement and we will connect you with a trusted expert in your area.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies encourage employees to participate in charitable giving by matching gifts dollar-for-dollar, or even more. If your company does not match, asking may inspire them to do so. If you are aware of your organizations matching program, print or request their matching gift form and forward it to IMB Ministry Advancement. Please review program guidelines to assess IMB eligibility. Ministry Advancement will be happy to review these guidelines with you or let you know if we have received other gifts from your company.
