Ask your IRA fund administrator for more information.

Gifts of Stock

Donating securities, including mutual funds, may be a tax-advantaged option for you. Your broker or mutual fund plan administrator will transfer the securities directly to ICJS’ brokerage account, if directed by you. First, contact Laura Urban at or (410) 494-7161, ext. 2004 to get the ICJS account information. Also, you will need to tell us when you make the transfer so we can know who the gift is from!

Kathryn Kelley Hoskins Memorial Fund

For 34 years, Kathryn Kelley Hoskins (1961-2021) worked to build the interreligious society, first as an ICJS founder who wrote the first bylaws, followed by her continual service as a Trustee until her death. Today, ICJS is proud to honor her with a memorial fund to support the work of building the interreligious society where dialogue replaces division, friendship overcomes fear, and education eradicates ignorance.
