How to Donate Stock to Empower One
If you’d like to support Empower One, but would prefer to give something other than cash, we have a solution. Donating securities held long term–more than one year–is a terrific way to give. Not only do you bless the ministry of Empower One, but you can avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation, and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of your donation.
To make an appreciated stock donation to Empower One, please give your broker the following information along with the number of shares you’d like to donate:
- DTC # 0226
- Care of: National Financial Services, LLC.
- Account Number 479-048720
- For Empower One at Account # 1593793
We’ve partnered with National Christian Foundation, hence the first account number. They’re also a 501(c)(3), so your donation is double-insured. They liquidate the stock on our behalf, then send us the funds to deploy into ministry work.
Consult with your broker for the optimum time for executing the wire transfer. It is suggested that year-end stock gifts be coordinated with your broker early in December to meet their year end transfer cut-off dates.
Thank you for partnering with Empower One. Please let us know if we can assist you in any way further regarding your gift.
