Stock Giving

Did you know estimates show that ministries receive up to 95% of their charitable receipts through gifts of cash, yet 90% of the wealth held in America is in some form of non-cash, often highly appreciated assets?

Giving via appreciated securities is a great way to both increase how much you are able to give to advance the gospel while avoiding capital gains tax on those gifts. Donations of appreciated securities — stocks, mutual funds, bonds, ADRs (American depository receipts) or other property — are recorded as a charitable gift at the appreciated amount.

City Church is able to accept appreciated assets and if you would like to support our mission in this way, please click here for more information.

Thank you for your continued support in renewing Houston by bringing the beauty of Christ into broken places.
