When you tithe, you’re trusting God with your finances.
Tithing is a biblical principle. God calls us to give the first 10% of our income back to Him. We’ve seen God provide abundantly in our church, and we know He will provide abundantly for you and your family when you put Him first in your finances. In fact, it’s the one area in the Bible where God tells you to test Him.
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
Malachi 3:10 NIV

Giving Stock FAQs
Who is Overflow?Overflow is a digital solution for donating non-cash assets, enabling donors to give in a tax-efficient way. Donors can experience the ease of giving via stock in less than five minutes from their mobile device. Overflow also provides givers access to a private Donor Profile which enables visibility into transaction history, transaction statuses, and the ability to update connected financial accounts.
Why should I donate stock?Donating appreciated stock that you've held for over a year could allow you to save up to 20%* in capital gains taxes and potentially up to 37%** in federal income taxes on the charitable donation value of your gift based on your tax bracket when itemizing deductions. To understand the full tax benefits of giving appreciated stock, including potential state tax savings, please consult with your tax professional for information about your personal tax implications.
How do I donate via Overflow?Access the Overflow platform via a Freedom Worship's giving page. Click "Give Stock". You will then be taken to the Overflow platform where you can follow the steps to complete the donation.
What can I expect after I submit my donation?Immediately after submitting your donation, you will receive an email confirmation of your gift. Stock transactions take 2-14 days to reach our account depending on the sending and receiving brokerages that are involved in the process. Once Freedom Worship receives your gift, they will send you an IRS-compliant acknowledgment letter that you can use to itemize the charitable deduction on your taxes.
Is it safe to connect my brokerage account to Overflow?Overflow's Information Security Program is SOC 2 compliant, a widely respected information security auditing procedure. Overflow does not have access to nor stores any brokerage account usernames or passwords. They use Yodlee, a third-party provider, that handles the brokerage login process. Over 600 companies including PayPal, Mint, and Amazon use Yodlee to connect their clients’ accounts. For more information about Overflow's security practices, please see this article.
What type of shares can I donate?You can give any shares that are publicly traded on the U.S. stock market through Overflow. By donating assets that have appreciated in value for more than one year, you are more likely to maximize the potential tax benefits.
Can I give through my 401K or IRA?Overflow can process all whole shares of publicly traded stock, including 401Ks and IRAs. However, because donors often incur penalties for withdrawing these assets before a certain date, we highly recommend consulting your tax professional before donating these types of assets. Donating 401Ks or IRAs could result in major tax penalties or even fewer tax benefits than donating cash.
Can I give company stock outside the trading window?If you received company-distributed stock as an employee and the trading window is not open, your brokerage will likely reject the transfer request. We highly advise you to ask your company for the trading windows and give them during those time periods, which typically are open quarterly for 3 to 4 weeks at a time.
Does Overflow support gifts from my brokerage account?Overflow currently supports over 10 brokerages via its self-guided platform including the most popular brokers such as Charles Schwab, Fidelity, and E*Trade. If Overflow doesn't have a direct connection to your brokerage account, your gift can still be fulfilled through their off-platform concierge service. (Learn more about this concierge service here). If you are donating through Overflow's donor experience and your brokerage account is not one of the 10+ currently supported with a direct connection, you'll be automatically connected with Overflow's Donor Operations team. You can also choose to opt into Overflow's fully-guided concierge service by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
