Have you considered donating stock?
Here's why donating stocks and other securities is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give:

A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time – is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. This method of giving has become increasingly popular in recent years because of two key advantages:

  1. Any long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (meaning they were purchased over a year ago, and have a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to a public charity and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities – up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.
  2. Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings will be. (Source: Fidelity.com)

What Others Are Saying...
"The Soul Care Retreat was a huge 'I love you!' from our heavenly Father. It was an especially precious gift to me as a pastor--24 hours set aside to seek the Father's heart in gently guided silence and solitude. And the location - wow! Beautiful grounds, sacred space--the perfect setting in which to answer God's call to 'be still and know that I am God.' The whole focus of the retreat was to be still, to quiet our souls in order to listen to the Holy Spirit, and to be encouraged to pursue a rhythm of life that incorporates contemplation as prerequisite to mission. I heard from God during this time!"

Pastor in attendance at Soul Care Retreat

"This 24-hr retreat was food and balm for my soul. I didn't know how much I needed this time away from the unremitting demands of pastoring and to take time to go deeper in my relationship to God in Christ. I had time to stop, look and listen. (Just getting away to stop is half the battle!) It was just the right balance of solitude, silence and connecting with the group. I have recommended this soul care retreat to several of my colleagues and friends."

Pastor in attendance at Soul Care Retreat

"I can confidently say God touched me very deeply, through the silence, through the interaction with the other people at the retreat, and through my one on one conversation with Steve--definitely. I rediscovered the number one priority of my life--intimacy with my heavenly Father. I regained my focus and perspective in life and everything else that was troubling me by the end of the retreat suddenly seemed to pale in significance to the blessing of being close to God and feeling his love once again."

Ministry leader in attendance at Soul Care Retreat

"I really appreciate what you are doing and the direction the Lord has taken you. Clearly you are focusing on the single most pressing need in the lives of spiritual leaders. I fear lest we have become a people of production rather than possession. We have great strategies for producing but are poverty stricken in our possession of life in the vine. My own soul is hungry. Yet feeding it gets pushed aside by so many things."

Pastor and mentor in the region - commenting on LTi
"Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. One thing God has spoken, two things I have heard: that you, O God, are strong, and that you, O Lord are loving."

Psalm 62: 5-8, 11, 12
