If you are considering a gift of stock for 2018 make sure you start your transfer process in time so the transaction can be completed before 2019.  Please notify Jim Holmlund jholmlund@beautifulsaviorlc.org or Gretchen Knispel gknispel@beautifulsaviorlc.org  if you are considering a stock transfer.
