Gifts for Church Support
The PCAF can receive gifts from donors that it uses to support your church. When you direct donors to the PCAF, we can receive their gifts of appreciated assets and then follow their recommendations to send a check for your ministry. From marketable securities (stocks, mutual funds, bonds) to real estate, we handle the gifting process from start to finish. Find instructions for initiating contributions here.
We have a gift clearing account with most of the major brokerage firms, making the process of gifting marketable securities seamless for your donors. The typical steps involved for gifts intended for immediate granting to your church or other ministries are as follows:
- The donor contacts the PCAF and identifies each Christian ministry they wish to support.
- The donor initiates a transfer of securities to the PCA Foundation.
- The PCAF liquidates the securities and provides the donor with a charitable receipt.
- The PCAF mails a check to the recipient ministries and a report to the donor.
There are no charges to the donor. However, we ask you to consider recommending a small gift to the PCAF to help offset our costs. The table below provides suggested contribution levels based on the value of the appreciated marketable securities.
|Gift Value Range||Suggested Contribution|
|$2,500 or less||$50|
|$2,501 to $10,000||$100|
|$10,001 to $50,000||$200|
|$50,001 or over||$300|
Real Estate and Closely-Held Businesses
Gifts of real estate and interests in closely-held businesses must meet certain requirements which can be discussed when you contact us.
