This time of year, 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. This is a free service for St. Matthew’s as the church is a Foundation account holder. If you are interested in making a stock donation to St. Matthew’s for 2016 or 2017 click here to obtain the form that needs to be completed.

All stock donations must be received in the brokerage account no later than December 31st for it to be considered a contribution for 2016. Contact the Foundation Office at 804-521-1121 with any questions.
