* Credit card payments are subject to a 3% processing fee. If choosing this option, please consider increasing the pledge by 3% so that the Capital Campaign does not lose these funds.

** While all donations (check, credit card, stock) are tax deductible as charitable contributions, the added advantage of donating Appreciated Stock (that is, stock that has risen in value) is that the donor does not need to pay Capital Gains Tax on the Appreciated value (profit). For example: Say you bought stock and it cost you $2,000. You are now ready to donate it to the synagogue and it is worth $3,000 when sold. The $1,000 difference is not subject to the Capital Gains Tax. Assuming the tax rate for the donor is 15%, the donor saves $150.
