A member recently asked if they would be able to pay their plege in the form of Appreciated Securities (usually stock which has gone up in price). The answer is Yes! Stock Donations are a great way to fulfill your pledge! With the stock market near all time highs, this is a good time to consider making the most tax efficient contribution possible to the Merrick Jewish Centre Capital Campaign. By donating stock held for more than one year, you receive the benefit of not paying capital gains tax plus a deduction for the full value of the stock donated. A number of congregants have already taken advantage of this. Please speak with your tax advisor to see if this is right for you.
Thank you for your support of the campaign. Our committee will continue to reach out to the congregation. Please call Jamey Kohn (516-379-8650) who will have one of our volunteers call you to discuss the campaign.
