non-cash giving options

donate a car

Do you have a vehicle that you no longer want or need?  We partner with “Vehicles for Charity” at to make donating your vehicle easy.  They arrange to pick up or tow your unwanted vehicle at no charge to you. Your vehicle will then be sold at auction, with a portion of the proceeds going to Park Hill UMC. Most cars, motorcycles, boats, and recreational vehicles are accepted – running or not.


The IRS may allow you to take a charitable tax deduction on your federal income tax return for the gross sale of your vehicle.  If the gross sale of the vehicle is greater than $500, the IRS may require you to fill out Form 8283, “Non-cash Charitable Contributions”. For more information, consult your tax advisor.

donate stock certificates

Park Hill UMC works with the Methodists Helping Methodists Foundation to help us to accept donations of securities. Please click on the link below for more information:


Giving a gift of appreciated stock directly to Parkhill is tax-deductible for the full market value of the stock on the date of donation, and there are no capital gains taxes to pay (a double-tax break). If your stock has risen in value since purchase, donating it directly to our securities account is preferable. We will immediately liquidate the stock and deposit the funds in our general operating account, unless otherwise designated by the giver. However, if it has lost value, it may be more advantageous for you to sell it first and then donate the profits as cash, so that you can recognize your tax loss. 


If you have questions or need more information, please email the Methodists Helping Methodists Foundation at: or call them at: 303.778.6370.
