GIVING

"A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great."

Proverbs 18:16

All things we are and have are from God. Through these God-given gifts, and our use of them, we are able to accomplish His purpose for us. One such purpose is to bring people to Jesus Christ. If this church has brought you to Christ, helped you grow in your faith, and provided you with opportunities to bring others to Christ, then we ask you to consider supporting this mission with your gifts.

Tax-Friendly Giving

Stock or security donations offer a tax-friendly opportunity to give to RUMC. If you have purchased stock and it has appreciated in value, when donating it you get a tax deduction for the stock value on the donation date. The church wins with your generous donation and you win with a tax deduction which is greater than your out of pocket cost of the stock. Contact Suzanne Denton at 770-261-1763 or sdenton@rumc.com to get details and transfer information.
If you are over 70 and a half years old and have an IRA, the IRS requires you to withdraw a certain amount each year from your account and pay tax on it. However, you can avoid that tax if you donate that amount to RUMC. Contact Nancy Erwin at 770-261-1726 for details.
Your brokerage firm can set up a Charitable Donor Advised Fund that allows for immediate tax deduction when your move assets like stocks, bonds or cash to your CDAF. You can then instruct the brokerage firm to disburse your gifts from it to RUMC. Contact Suzanne Denton at 770-261-1763 for questions and information.
