Gifts of Stock

Contact the Financial Manager for instructions on transmitting shares of stock electronically to our brokerage account. The contribution is valued at the fair market value of the stock certificates at the time of transfer. Please let the financial office know what stocks will be given to NPC.

Some people can realize tax benefits through gifts of stock. Please contact your tax advisor or attorney for more info.

Gifts of Property or Other Assets

NPC accepts gifts of property and other tangible items for which it has direct use. These gifts are accepted after consideration by the church leadership. Gifts that are accepted will be acknowledged through a receipt from the church for tax purposes; such gifts are not included on the annual cash giving statements issued by the church, as the value is assigned by the donor.

Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts and Honor gifts are made in memory of or in honor of members of family or friends. The church will send a notice of your gift, without indicating the dollar amount, to the family of the deceased or the person being honored. A review of memorial and honor funds is made periodically for appropriate use of the funds if there was not an agreed upon designation in advance.

Planned Giving

Charitable trusts and annuities, life income gifts, and bequests are other forms of giving. These kinds of gifts may provide tax advantages, and in some cases income, to the donor and beneficiaries. Those considering such gifts should consult with a financial advisor or attorney. Please be sure to let us know if you have already provided for NPC in your will.
