A Tax-Savvy Way To Give

As Christ-followers, we give to others to follow Christ’s example and to invest in His eternal Kingdom. We trust Jesus when he said, “It is better to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).

While it should never be the reason why we give, a secondary benefit when we do, in America, is the tax savings it provides.

There are lots of ways to leverage your giving for tax savings, but perhaps none more fruitful than donating stocks.

Many of our partners are often surprised to hear that by donating stocks to Forward Edge, they can make a powerful impact while gaining some financial benefits.

Why stock giving is so beneficial

Whenever you cash out your appreciated stocks, you have to pay capital gains tax. However, if you donate some of them directly to Forward Edge, that full amount is eligible for a tax deduction, and you’re also now left with a smaller capital gains liability. This savvy technique allows you to give more and save in two ways on your taxes!

For some, giving stock can seem confusing and complicated. The good news is we have people ready to guide you through the process to make it much easier.

Contact our Controller, Tim Jones, for questions or to donate stock: timjones@forwardedge.org or (360) 558-5893.

If you’re planning on giving to Forward Edge again in the future, and you own stocks, I encourage you to check out this tax-savvy option. It’s a great way to reap secondary benefits while you continue blessing others in Jesus’ name.

Almost 20 years ago now, I was circling the 60-foot maple tree that stands just yards from my front door, talking to my Heavenly Father. Forward Edge needed to upgrade the training we provided for our short-term mission teams, and I was asking God for guidance. In a matter of

Eneja lives with her parents and big brother in a two-room apartment. Their furniture is second-hand but kept very clean. Eneja’s mother lost her eyesight in 2013 and doesn’t work. Her father works as a waiter in a restaurant for a low wage. During the summer he must work long hours so Eneja and her brother look after the house and their mother, as she cannot be alone. This is hard for Eneja but she tries to be happy and positive for others.

Eneja's brother, Dorian, is also in the Corner Stone program.
