Other Giving Options
In 2015 Congress made permanent the ability for eligible persons to donate directly from their IRA instead of having to take a required minimum distribution. This benefits you because you do not have to then claim the distributed funds as income; however, please be aware that you also will not be able to deduct the fund distribution amount on your tax return as a charitable contribution. It’s imperative that your investment advisor have the amount transferred directly to the church.
The financial markets have shown significant gains in 2016. If you have appreciated shares of common stock, you can transfer shares of stock from your account to the church’s brokerage account. This provides you with a dual benefit: you do not have to claim the capital gain on the appreciated shares, and you get to claim the total value of this stock on that date of the transfer as a charitable contribution.
With each of your Amazon purchases you can now also support FUMCFW when you shop — at no additional cost to you — through AmazonSmile.
You’ll get the same low prices, vast selection, and convenient shopping experience — and our church can benefit from donations through your eligible AmazonSmile purchases.
You only have to set it up once — Amazon will remember your selection for future purchases. Learn more.

Even though I have been in the “fundraising” business for many years, this new gig is excitingly different, so I have been searching church websites for possible mentors.
