Gifting Instructions

Click on a tab below for specific instructions on how to make a gift to your fund at the PCA Foundation, Inc.

Cash Gifts by Automated Clearing House (ACH) or by Credit Card

For your convenience, we accept online contributions using the EGS (Electronic Giving Solutions) system, a complete online Donation Management System by Stewardship Technology. Please note: credit card contributions will be made available in the specified fund net of processing fees. Depending on the credit card brand, processing fees can range from 2.5% to 3.5% of the amount contributed.

1. Login to your existing EGS online contribution account.
2. Contribute as a guest (without having to create an account).
3. Sign up for an EGS online contribution account.

Contributions may be initiated for support of Advise & Consult Fund, Designated Fund, or Recommended Endowment Fund accounts established at the PCA Foundation. You may also contribute toward the PCAF’s operating expenses using the EGS system by typing PCAF General Operating Fund in the COMMENT or NOTE field.

The EGS system facilitates one-time and recurring contributions. Contributions can be initiated via an electronic funds transfer from your bank account (checking or savings) using the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system or by means of a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express).

Cash Gifts by Wire Transfer

If you would like to initiate a wire transfer to your account at the PCA Foundation, please contact Mark Bailey or Lou Anne Purnell for help. Instructions will be provided upon your request.

Giving Shares of Stock – via Broker to Broker Electronic Transfers (DTC)

Please notify the PCA Foundation prior to authorizing your broker to initiate a transfer of stock. The following information is needed to ensure proper credit of the stock transfer to your fund:

  • the name and symbol of the stocks being transferred
  • the number of shares
  • the name of and contact information for the brokerage firm initiating the transfer

NEXT, please ask your broker or financial advisor to contact Mark Bailey, the PCAF’s Business Manager, to obtain the delivery instructions. If you prefer, we can provide the delivery instructions to you for you to communicate directly with your broker or advisor.

PLEASE NOTE:  When you donate a marketable security to the PCA Foundation and recommend the funds be distributed immediately to a Christian ministry, we refer to it as an “In & Out” transaction. When we facilitate an “In & Out” transaction, we ask the donor to recommend a small gift ($100-$300) to the PCA Foundation to offset processing costs.

Giving Stock in Certificate Form

Please notify Mark Bailey, the PCA Foundation’s Business Manager, prior to making any gift of stock.

If the stock is in certificate form, do not sign or fill in any information on the back of the certificate. Follow the instructions below:

Download a copy of our blank Stock Power form (this form is in .pdf format – click here to download Adobe’s free Acrobat Reader if you don’t already have it installed so that you can download the form.) Please note that the Stock Power must be Medallion Signature Guaranteed (your local bank officer can do this). Sign the Stock Power exactly as the name(s) appear(s) on the stock certificate(s). Do not fill in any of the information about yourself or the certificate on the Stock Power. See our sample stock power form for illustration.

There is only one Stock Power needed for each issue — not each certificate — as long as the names the stock certificates are registered in are identical.

Remember not to endorse or fill out the back of your stock certificate. Send it to us along with your Stock Power and with a letter stating it is a gift to the PCA Foundation and the purpose of the gift.

NOTE: THE STOCK POWER MUST BE SIGNED EXACTLY AS YOUR NAME APPEARS ON YOUR STOCK CERTIFICATE.

Send the signed, dated and Medallion Signature Guaranteed Stock Power(s) and Certificate(s) to the PCA Foundation via FedEx, UPS, Airborne Express, etc. (for security and tracking purposes) to:
PCA Foundation, Inc.
Attn: Mark Bailey, Business Manager
1700 North Brown Road, Suite 103

Mutual Funds

The PCA Foundation will gladly accept gifts of mutual fund shares. The Foundation maintains gift clearing accounts at a number of brokerage and mutual fund firms. If we do not have an existing account at the firm where your mutual funds are held, we will gladly open an account in order to accept your gift.

If you wish to gift mutual fund shares, please contact Mark Bailey or Randy Stair for further information and instructions.

Instructions for transferring shares of a mutual fund are most often different for each mutual fund being transferred and the transfer process is best accomplished when the brokerage firm representatives communicate directly.

PLEASE NOTE: When you donate a marketable security to the PCA Foundation and recommend the funds be distributed immediately to a Christian ministry, we refer to it as an “In & Out” transaction. When we facilitate an “In & Out” transaction, we ask the donor to recommend a small gift ($100-$300) to the PCA Foundation to offset processing costs.

Again, please contact us to request transfer information for mutual fund shares prior to initiating a transfer.
