Please tell Bethel of any stock donations made through wire transfers. We are not notified automatically when stock is transferred into our account, and our statements will not indicate donors' names. We would like to acknowledge your donation and will be unable to do so unless you notify us.
You Hold the Share Certificate
If you have stock certificates, they can be hand-delivered to the church. Please sign the back of the certificate exactly as your name appears on the front, and leave the rest of the back blank. When you deliver the certificate to the church you will fill out a form which assigns the certificate to Bethel.
