There are several ways you can join us in the financial support of First Presbyterian Church of Kenosha: in person during Worship and other activities, online through our secure weblink or by mailing your check to the church. We also gratefully accept your contributions of donated appreciated securites and planned giving, as explained below.

Donation of Appreciated Securities
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.
Information about Planned Giving Options can be found here. If you have any questions regarding your gift, please contact the church office to be put in contact with our Financial Secretary.
For in-kind giving, prior authorization from the pastor and/or appropriate committee is required before the acceptance or recognition of the gift.
