You can make a secure online donation to Sunrise through PayPal, click on the secure Paypal link on the left. If you don't have a PayPal account, you can set one up, or you can use your credit or debit card to donate. PayPal will email you a receipt.
Sunrise UMC, as a non-profit 501(c)3, receives about 98% of your donation when you give online.
If you want us to get 100% the best way is to send a check to the Sunrise PO Box (you can find the address here).
If you do not have a PayPal account You can give to Sunrise through a recurring bank draft by setting up Bill Pay from within your own Bank Account, then you are in full control. Please use our mailing address for this purpose:
PO Box 266
Lewisville, NC 27023-0266
Other forms of Giving
Alternatively, you may contact the church office directly at the Sunrise Office and we will be able to email you our bank details if you prefer to donate stock.
Given the changes in the rules for itemized deductions under the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act (TCJA), stock donations to a non-profit 501(c)3 can reduce your taxes by giving you total deductions that exceed your new increased standard deduction amount.
We can provide you with wire instructions to have the stock transferred. Make sure that your brokerage firm knows that you do not want to sell the stock, but instead would like a "transfer in kind" to the charity. This way, the charity can sell the stock and use the funds for the charitable purpose without having to pay taxes on the gain.
If you have a stock with a built-in loss, do not donate it "in kind." Instead, sell the stock and take the loss on your personal tax return. Give the proceeds to the charity, which will go on your Schedule A as an itemized deduction.
