From the Desk of MRO President Billy Mauldin

 

"The secret of making dreams come true can be summarized in four C's.
They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy; and the greatest of these is Confidence." ~ Walt Disney

“But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in Him. ~ Jeremiah 17:7

 

What a year!

 

Before this year began, we at MRO dreamed and believed that 2016 would be a year of #ImmeasurablyMore.  We always remained confident that we would see God do, through the time and efforts of this ministry, “Immeasurably More” than we could even hope or imagine.  As we look back on this past year, indeed He has; our trust and confidence has been rewarded!

 

What have we seen God do this year?  Children, young people, singles, men and women, young and old, and families drawn to the presence and truth of God’s Word and His Love for all of us.  It has taken place in garages, motorcoach lots, homes, businesses and race shops.  Everywhere MRO is privileged to serve, teach, encourage, both inside and outside the race tracks, God has been so obviously present meeting the needs of many whether issues of health, finances, marriages, things past, present and future that are both highs and lows of all our daily lives.  A community defined by each one’s unique relationship to racing, but finding greater value and purpose in life through their personal relationships with Jesus Christ.

 

Throughout the year, we have been blessed by the trust and confidence we have received from those whose lives we are a part of.  Nothing means more to us than to know you feel comfortable counting on us, and we count that as an honor.

 

To list all we have seen God do this year would take many more pages than an envelope can contain.  Almost daily, we have seen God reveal Himself in ways that trust and confidence in Him have increased consistently and greatly in the lives of so many we know and love. 

 

Thank you for being a part of this ministry and the work God is doing amongst those we serve. Thank you for praying and providing financially, so we can share the life and teachings of Jesus with so many.  Thank you for cheering us on and encouraging us with kind words, notes, letters, gestures and even those simple smiles which mean the world to us.

 

 

2016 is coming to an end, and once again we would like to ask you to think about MRO as you consider your year-end charitable giving.  Your financial support will help us finish paying all the bills of this past season (a few do remain) and give us a head start on our 2017 budget.  As for 2017, we can confidently say that we will go into the coming year with great expectation!  As we pray for direction for the new year, we already believe, have trust and confidence that God will continue to reveal Himself in amazing ways to those who will simply look to Him!

 

So buckle up!  Get ready!  Trust Him!  Be confident!  With curiosity dream big and with great courage, together, let’s walk with constancy into 2017 and just see what He has in store!

 

Blessings and a very Merry Christmas,

President and Senior Chaplain

MRO Stock Donations

 

The benefits available to you when making a contribution of stock or mutual funds may include:

 

•Avoiding federal and state tax on the capital gain;

•Receiving an income tax deduction (federal and most states) for the full market value of the gift if you itemize deductions on your tax return and have held the assets one year or longer;

•Making a larger gift at a lower original cost to you.

Before you make a gift of appreciated securities, you should consult your financial planner or tax advisor to determine how the potential tax advantages described here apply to your specific situation.

 

There are two common methods of gifting securities to MRO. The first is Electronic transfer through which your broker can transfer shares using the MRO DTC number. The other is physically mailing the paper certificates to our contact with MorganStanley SmithBarney. Either method is acceptable, but it is necessary for you to contact your broker to initiate the transfer.

 

Stock Advantages Over Cash

 

Your securities donation can deliver significant tax advantages over a cash donation, allowing you to fund the community issues you care about at a lower after-tax cost to you. The chart below depicts the difference between the after-tax cost of a gift of cash and a gift of stock. Assume that the stock was originally purchased at $250 (basis), the income tax rate is 27%, and the capital gains tax is 20%.

 

*For tax receipt purposes, actual stock valuation is based on the mean of the highest and lowest price on the day the stock is received by MRO. Gifts of stock will be liquidated when received, and brokerage fees will be deducted from the gross proceeds. The net proceeds will be disbursed to your charities.
