Gifting Instructions

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

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.

Mutual Funds

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 Foundation accepts EFT and credit card contributions via the EGS (Electronic Giving Solutions) system, a secure online Donation Management System by Stewardship Technology. 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.

Cryptocurrency

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.

Donate Cryptocurrency Now

To make an immediate cryptocurrency donation from your exchange account/wallet to the PCAF, complete the following transfer form. The BitPay merchant system supports donations of Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Ethereum (ETH), Dogecoin (DOGE) and 4 USD-pegged stablecoins (GUSD, USDC, PAX, and BUSD). However, not all exchanges/wallets are supported.

If you are interested in discussing a cryptocurrency donation, or the BitPay transfer system does not accomodate the coin you wish to donate, complete the inquiry form below and our staff will contact you within 24 hours.

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.
