Churches - Donate to Help Someone Succeed with Re-Entry

GIVE TO CROSSWALK CENTER so we may increase capacity to serve more returning citizens and their families in the 2016-17 Pilot Year. A gracious one-time gift of $25,000 during our Pilot Year will designate your congregation as a CrossWalk Center founding church partner.

What does a gift mean to you personally? How do you measure the cost of your individual sacrifice?
For illustrative purposes, the following table breaks down various pledged amounts into a per diem over five years. The Table of Gifts below shows how quickly cash gifts add up over time.

Pledge Chart

Cash Gifts -
May be made from savings or from current in­come.

Gifts of Stock -
May be made by giving the stock to the ministry. This is often a desirable way to give. By giving a gift of stock, the giver avoids capital gains taxes on the investment growth and is eligible for a tax deduction equal to the full current amount of the stock gift. (Actual value of gift is equal to the mean of the high and low stock price on the day of transaction).

Gifts of Property -
Such as land, rental property, or almost any other personal property can be made to the Initiative. By giving gifts of property, the giver will generally avoid capital gains tax and will be eligible for the full current value of the gift.

Mutual Fund Shares -
Can be transferred to the ministry, avoiding capital gains and allowing for the full current value of the gift.
