Donating Stocks and Bonds

You can donate stocks and bonds directly to the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts and potentially receive significant tax savings if you have had stocks for more than a year and are worth more than what you purchased them for. This can be a great way to invest in the Center’s mission and take advantage of the benefits for charitable giving in the U.S. Tax Code.

How It WorksProject Name

You must transfer the stocks and bonds directly to CSNTM rather than selling them first. In order to process this type of donation, you will need to contact your broker or financial institution and follow their procedures. We are here to help along the way and make sure you have CSNTM’s information. You can contact CSNTM’s development team with the contact information below.
