Donating Appreciated Stocks, Bonds or Mutual Funds

Giving appreciated assets may have tax advantages for you. These assets are given to Crossroads indirectly via our single charity fund with the National Christian Foundation (NCF). NCF will liquidate gifts of stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares as soon as possible after receipt and deposit the sale proceeds into Crossroads Kids Club’s account.

The assets are donated at the current market value, regardless of the cost or basis of the donor, which means that you avoid paying any capital gains tax on donated shares. You will receive a letter from the National Christian Foundation describing, but not valuing, your gift. That letter serves as your tax receipt. Your broker or publication such as the Wall Street Journal may supply market value. Please contact your tax professional for details about how such a gift affects your particular situation

Other Types of Non-Cash Gifts

Other giving options include life insurance, retirement assets, bequests and charitable gift fund donations. For additional information, contact Executive Director Matt Armstrong at or by phone at 630-501-4374.
