“He shoots; he scores!” the announcer yells. Music blares, colorful lights flash, and the crowd goes wild.
For hockey fans, there’s nothing quite as exciting as being in person to witness a hat trick – a player making three goals in a single game.
Less flashy, but almost as thrilling is the triple score of giving appreciated stock to Guiding Light. It’s a smart and powerful way to further the important work of rescue, recovery and re-engagement in community.
When you give appreciated stock, you score three personal benefits:
Give from your excess resources without restricting your cash flow,
Receive a fair market value tax deduction at the time of your gift, AND
Avoid tax liability on the sale of appreciated stock.
You may not hear any blaring music or thunderous applause. Still, you can celebrate knowing you’ve accomplished a profound amount of good in a tax-efficient manner.
Feel free to do a fist pump, or even skate a victory lap or two. We promise we won’t judge.

THIS MEANS THAT ANYONE WHO BELONGS TO CHRIST HAS BECOME A NEW PERSON. THE OLD LIFE IS GONE; A NEW LIFE HAS BEGUN!
