Stock Donation

How It Works

  • You transfer appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual fund shares you have owned for more than one year to University Bible Fellowship.
  • University Bible Fellowship sells your securities and uses the proceeds for its programs.
  • Use our Stock Transfer Form to facilitate the gift.


  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer (even if you originally paid much less for them).
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold.
  • Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The "cost" of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it.
