You are asking the wrong people then. I personally know two LDS members that 
paid their tithing just last year (2015) using stock... one of them it was 
hundreds of thousands of dollars worth.

I can get you the contact info if you are seriously interested.

  When asked the answer comes back as NO.  They say sell, convert to dollars 
and give them the dollars.

  That's not correct Chuck... I know many wealthy LDS people that donate stock 
for tithing. They will only accept the "larger" stocks, such as Apple, Google, 
Amazon, GM, Ford, etc... but they do take it, and lots of people use that

    I use this tax strategy years ago and it enabled me to donate more money 
and pay less tax.

      Thanks for the tips! AAPL may be a good buy right now but not a steal

the Samsung thing, etc), it's making 2% and it's still "liquid" according to 
the banks, which helps on personal financial statements.

it first, you just transfer it at the current value. Amazing the tax tricks 
these church going people come up with... LOL
