You may be surprised to learn that the stuff you have could help expand the reach of the Gospel. Ethnos360 can help you use your non-cash assets to aid in planting churches among unreached people groups. We will work with you to develop the best giving strategy for you and your family. You may even be able to reduce or avoid taxes by giving such non-cash assets as:

  • Boats
  • Antiques and other collectibles
  • Jewelry and coins
  • Business inventory

When a gift has been accepted by Ethnos360, a letter is sent to the partner for their tax records. The partner then determines the value of the gift.

To make a gift-in-kind gift, simply call Ethnos360, and we’ll help you out. The Ethnos360 Stewardship Development Office can be reached at 800-813-1566. 

Stocks: A Gift with Eternal Dividends

In many cases, giving stock results in a greater tax advantage than a cash gift. By giving stock you have owned for more than one year, you can receive a tax deduction for the fair-market value of the stock and not what you paid for it. This allows you to avoid capital gains tax, potentially saving you thousands of dollars.

For example, say you’re going to make a $10,000 gift and are considering selling stock to get the funds. If you sold $10,000 of stock that you had purchased over a year ago for $5,000, you would owe $750 of longterm capital gains tax (15% x $5,000), leaving you with $9,250. You would have to add an additional $750 to get back up to $10,000 for the gift you desired to give.

However, you can avoid the $750 in taxes by giving the stock, and you can then write off the full $10,000 on your taxes. Ethnos360 would then sell the stock so the funds could be used for the mission field.

Making this type of gift is easy. Simply notify us of your desire to give the shares, and we’ll give you the information to pass along to your broker. To learn more, call 800-813-1566 or email sdo@ntm.org.
