Non-Cash Gifts

Stock Shares and More

Avant Ministries gladly accepts donations of stock and other securities. Upon receiving donated stock, our broker immediately sells the stock and transfers the proceeds which are credited to the account(s) designated by the donor. A tax-qualified, gift-in-kind receipt is sent to the donor showing the shares donated and the day they were received by our broker.

To donate stock to Avant Ministries, please follow this two-step process. To donate bonds, please contact us for further instructions using the contact information at the bottom of this page.

1.       Instruct your broker to transfer the stock to our account at UBS:
