Shares of Stock – donated via Broker to Broker Electronic Transfers (DTC)
Please notify the Foundation and provide the following information prior to initiating a transfer of stock. This information is necessary to ensure proper credit of the donation to your fund:
- the name and symbol of the stock, or stocks, being transferred
- the number of shares
- the name and contact information for the brokerage firm initiating the transfer
NEXT, please contact Tracey Avery, the PCAF’s Office Mgr/Gifting & Operations Assistant, to obtain the DTC delivery instructions.
The PCA Foundation accepts gifts of mutual funds. Most mutual funds held in a traditional brokerage account are ACATS eligible, therefore, shares can be easily transferred from broker to broker using standard DTC instructions.
If you wish to donate shares of a mutual fund, please contact the Foundation for further instructions.
PLEASE NOTE: When you donate a marketable security to the PCA Foundation and recommend the funds be distributed immediately to a Christian ministry, we ask you to recommend as well a small distribution to the PCA Foundation operating fund to offset the costs of its ministry. 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|

Donate by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT/ACH) or Credit Card

The EGS system accommodates one-time and recurring contributions from a 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). Please note: credit card contributions are posted to 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.
Contributions may be initiated for support of Advise & Consult Fund, Designated Fund, or Increase 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.

Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple and similar cryptocurrencies are treated as non-cash property by the IRS and regulated as such for tax purposes. This leads to a number of considerations when it comes to the transfer of ownership, including the need for the donor to obtain a qualified appraisal for donations exceeding $5,000.
The PCA Foundation has the ability to facilitate gifts of a number of various cryptocurrency coins. Donations of cryptocurrency to an Advise & Consult Fund® or Increase Fund at the PCA Foundation can maximize tax savings and thereby maximize a donor’s long-term giving.
