WHO ARE WE...AND WHO ARE WE (BECOMING)?
Henri Nouwen offers an impactful way for us to think about stewardship and Who are we...:
“When we seek to raise funds, we are not saying, ‘Please, could you help out because lately it’s been hard.’ Rather, we are declaring, ‘we have a vision that is amazing and exciting. We are inviting you to invest yourself through the resources that God has given you - your energy, your prayers, and your money – in the work which God has called us.’” — The Spirituality of Fund-Raising

TRADABLE SECURITIES & STOCK OPTION CONTRIBUTIONS
When you contribute tradable securities (stocks, mutual funds, or bonds for example) directly to Royal Lane Baptist Church, it has the benefit that the current value on date of receipt is transferred to the church. Donors receive the benefit of both a tax deductible charitable contribution based on current value with the added benefit of capital gain avoidance and no trading cost. Consult your financial adviser and/or RLBC's financial adviser, Jim Bell regarding such contributions. Jim can be reached at Eagle Retirement Group, LLC. His direct line is (972) 503-2355, or email him .
IRA MINIMUM DISTRIBUTION (RMD)
Under the Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) rules:
The IRA owner must be at least 70 1/2 to designate the QCD to a charity. The check issued by the IRA plan must be made payable to the charity. The dollar amount is limited to $100,000 per year per individual. The direct contribution from your IRA-RMD funds allows you to avoid ordinary income tax and trading cost. However, you cannot include the contribution on your Schedule C tax form. Contact your tax and plan advisers for specific information on making the contribution.
