DENOMINATIONAL OFFERINGS

ONE GREAT HOUR OF SHARING

Typically received during the season of Lent, each gift to One Great Hour of Sharing supports efforts to relieve hunger through the Presbyterian Hunger Program, promote development through the Presbyterian Committee on the Self-Development of People, and assist in areas of disaster through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance.

PENTECOST OFFERING

A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and also address the needs of at-risk children. 40% of the Pentecost offering can be retained by individual congregations wanting to make an impact in the lives of young people within their own community. The remaining 60% is used to support children-at-risk, youth, and young adults through ministries of the Presbyterian Mission Agency.

CHRISTMAS JOY OFFERING

The Christmas Joy Offering has been a cherished Presbyterian tradition since the 1930s. The Offering distributes gifts equally to the Assistance Program of the Board of Pensions and to Presbyterian-related schools and colleges equipping communities of color. The Assistance Program provides critical financial support to church workers and their families. Presbyterian-related schools and colleges provide education and leadership development while nurturing racial and ethnic heritage. This has been a Presbyterian commitment for nearly 140 years.

PEACE AND GLOBAL WITNESS OFFERING

A gift to the Peace & Global Witness Offering enables the church to promote the Peace of Christ by addressing systems of conflict and injustice across the world. Individual congregations are encouraged to utilize up to 25% of this Offering to connect with the global witness of Christ’s peace. Mid councils retain an additional 25% for ministries of peace and reconciliation. The remaining 50% is used by the Presbyterian Mission Agency to advocate for peace and justice in cultures of violence, including our own, through collaborative projects of education and Christian witness.

By donating stock that has appreciated for more than a year, you are actually giving 20% (or 25%, pending proposed tax legislation) more than if you sold the stock and then made a cash donation.

The reason is simple: avoiding capital gains taxes. ... But if you donate the stock directly to a charity, there's no capital gains tax to pay.

Plus, you are still eligible to deduct the full fair-market value of the asset you donated from your income taxes, up to the overall amount allowed by the IRS.

If you're over 70-1/2 years of age, you can make a Qualified Charitable Donation (QCD) from your IRA.

The QCD gifting option allows you, starting at age 70½, to instruct your IRA administrator to direct IRA distributions—up to $100,000 per year—to a qualified 501(c)(3) charity such as APC. Because the IRA income goes directly to charity, you do not report the QCD as taxable income and do not owe any taxes on the QCD, which may be particularly beneficial to you if you are forced to take a Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) and don't need the extra money.

In addition to avoiding taxable income, your IRA distribution can be put to good use by your favorite qualified charity. It's truly a win-win option.

Be sure to consult your tax adviser to be certain this is the best strategy for you.
