We offer this option to our members and friends through Vanco Services, a PCI Level 1 Compliant Service Provider.  The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a mandated set of security requirements for protecting cardholder data.

 

The donation of appreciated securities to First Presbyterian Church offers unique advantages both to donors and our Church. This method of charitable giving has become increasingly popular in recent years. 

  *Long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (meaning they were purchased over a year ago, and have a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to First Presbyterian Church and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities— up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.

*Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings will be.

 Your contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. By taking advantage of the applicable tax incentives, donors can significantly increase the amount of funds available to them for giving—a win-win for donors and First Presbyterian Church.
