Gifting  Publicly Traded Stock

Many United Methodist members choose to make donations of stock as a tax-deductible contribution to their church.  The Virginia United Methodist Foundation provides this brokerage service to all local churches, by accepting the stock, liquidating it upon receipt, and issuing a check to the designated church.  If you are interested in making a stock donation to St. Matthew’s  click here to obtain the form that needs to be completed.  Click here for more information from The Virginia United Methodist Foundation.  For questions regarding the form or process  you can also contact Todd Creekman at

All stock donations must be received in the brokerage account no later than the last day of the year to be counted towards that year.  Contact the Foundation Office at 804-521-1121 with any other questions.
