Matching Gift Program

Sunday, May 12–Sunday, June 9

Last year’s Matching Gift Program was so successful we reached our goal early and additional donors have asked to match gifts. This year our anonymous donors have agreed to match gifts to First Baptist Church’s ministry and missions fund up to $60,000! We will kick off the program on Sunday, May 12. Your gift must be over and above your regular giving to ministry and missions. We are so grateful for the way God is working at First Baptist Church.

It’s because of your generosity that we are able to bring The Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia.

Tax-Savvy Ways to Give a Gift

Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs)

(QCDs) such as your IRA Charitable Rollover. An IRA rollover allows people aged 70 ½ and older to reduce their taxable income by making a gift directly from their IRA.

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)

A DAF is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support First Baptist Church. DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

Gifts of Stock

Donating appreciated assets avoids federal capital gains taxes and provides a federal income tax deduction for the current market value of the gift. When arranging a gift of stock with your broker to our church, you will need the following information:

  • DTC: 0443
  • Acct. No. LRM233936
