Contributing Shares of Stock
Many Beth El members contribute shares of appreciated stock to pay their dues or donate to the Annual Fund or other funds and programs. If you choose this method, you do not pay tax on your capital gain and you receive a charitable deduction equal to the entire fair market value of the shares of stock. Take these steps: (1) consult your tax advisor; (2) contact Beth El’s Financial Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org for specific instructions; (3) use the stock donation form below:

You can also support our education programming by linking your Harris Teeter VIC Card to benefit the Talmud Torah.
Visit the Harris Teeter website or, the next time you’re at Harris Teeter, simply tell your cashier during check-out that you want Beth El’s account number, 5883 , linked to your Harris Teeter VIC card. Once the account number is linked, every time you shop during the school year, 2% of your Private Label purchases will be contributed to the Beth El Talmud Torah.
You can also support Talmud Torah by visiting Menchie’s Yogurt at Patterson Place in Durham Monday through Friday! (Just mention Beth El when you place your order). For more information, visit Menchie’s and Talmud Torah.
