Outright Gifts

Appreciated Property

Appreciated property, such as stocks and mutual funds, make good giving vehicles. By making a gift of appreciated assets, your tax deduction is based on the fair market value of the asset and not your cost. Thus, you do not incur the capital gains tax which would be due had you sold the asset and then made a gift.

Gifts Through Will

Through your Will, you can specify an amount or a percentage of your estate to be given to the Mississippi Baptist Foundation and used to provide financial resources to the Baptist cause or causes you desire.
