GTAustin is a place of incredible generosity. We are so grateful for a church that generously loves, serves and gives toward what God is doing through this church. 1 Timothy 6:18 says "Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share." Thank you for partnering with us as we endeavor to tell the life-changing message of Jesus to our world. In addition to helping to impact the world globally and locally, we believe that our giving honors God and blesses the giver as much as the recipient.

Donating appreciated stock will cost you less than making the same donation in cash. If you sell the appreciated stock you must first pay the capital gains tax and then donate the after-tax portion. When you donate appreciated stock you can deduct the full value of the stock and avoid paying the capital gains tax. The church receives the full value of the stock because, as a charitable organization, it is not required to pay the tax.
