Giving in all kinds of ways to share Jesus

Thank you for considering a gift to Global Media Outreach! There are many options to help share Jesus with the world through Global Media Outreach. Whether you give a cash gift or non-cash gift, these funds will be used to share the gospel all over the world. Many non-cash gifts provide extra tax incentives and savings for you when given to a non-profit organization. When your non-cash gift is given directly to Global Media Outreach, your charitable deduction will be for the full fair market value of the gift at the time of the transfer and you will also avoid paying capital gains tax.

Benefits of Non-Cash Giving

  • Eliminate capital gains taxes
  • Increase charitable deductions
  • Lower estate taxes
  • Enables you to make a potentially greater impact in sharing Jesus and the gospel all over the world

Transfer Shares Electronically

It is very important to contact us at donations@gmomail.org when the transfer has been completed, or call us at 972-975-9444.

We will need to know the number of shares, the name of the security, the purpose of the gift, and your name and address. We need this information to properly acknowledge your gift because an electronic transfer of shares does not include a notification of who the shares are from. Instruct your broker to transfer your shares from your account to Global Media Outreach. Sample Transfer Instruction Letter.

Reinstatement of the exclusion for direct charitable IRA distributions

Prior to enactment of this legislation, this special exclusion expired as of December 31, 2009. The new law not only reinstates the exclusion for 2010 through 2012, it also permits IRA holders who make qualifying distributions from their IRAs to charity in January of 2011 to treat the distribution as if it were made in 2010. Below is a description of how the exclusion works. Gifts need to be transferred by January 31, 2011 for crediting in 2010. Consult your tax advisor or IRA custodian. For assistance, call us at 972-975-9444 and ask for Janis. Or if you prefer, you can email us at donations@gmomail.org.

The following limitations apply:

  • The donor must be age 70 1/2 or older
  • The cap on annual IRA rollovers is $100,000
  • The contribution must be a direct gift to a charity (no planned gifts)
