Give tax free from your IRA
If you take Required Minimum Distributions from your IRA, and you're in the habit of supporting the church with your checkbook, consider making your pledge to the church directly from your IRA instead. That way you won't have to pay income tax on the gift, and you can count up to $100,000 of charitable giving per year toward your Required Minimum Distribution. It's easy. Call your account's custodian (their phone number should be on your statement). There may be a simple form to fill out, or you may be able to complete the transaction over the phone. Here's the information they will need in order to send your gift directly to the church:
Our name: First United Methodist Church of Twin Falls
Our address: 360 Shoshone St E, Twin Falls, ID 83301

Gifts of Stock
Appreciated stock transferred in-kind to a qualified tax-exempt organization like the church creates a tax advantage for the givers, allowing them to bypass capital gains tax. If your stock is held in a brokerage account, your broker can transfer your gift electronically. Contact our office for the details your broker will need to transfer stock.
When you name Twin Falls First UMC in your will or trust or as a beneficiary of a retirement plan, saving account, or life insurance policy, you ensure that there will be a United Methodist presence supporting the Twin Falls community for years to come. Our church has several funds you can donate to including the Centennial Memorial Endowment Fund which is used for property needs and the Engle Fund which is used to build ministry programs.
