FLC is implementing permit parking. Parking in downtown Bothell has become a huge issue for the church parking lot. To protect the safety of our preschool families and ensure adequate parking for our many activities parking will be by permit only. Please be sure to stop by and pick up your permit as soon as possible.
First Lutheran has opened a Scottrade account to allow FLC to accept donations of securities.
A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities — i.e. stocks, bonds and/or mutual funds that have realized significant appreciation over time — is one of the most tax-efficient of all ways to give. This method of giving has become increasingly popular in recent years because of two key advantages:
· Any long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains (meaning they were purchased over a year ago, and have a current value greater than their original cost) may be donated to a public charity and a tax deduction taken for the full fair market value of the securities — up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.
· Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings will be.
