Giving at Downtown Cornerstone

Asset-Based Giving

Stocks, Mutual Funds, or Bitcoin

If you are currently giving via cashed-based assets (check, ACH, Credit/Debit, etc.) and you also have appreciated stocks, mutual funds, or Bitcoin in a taxable investment portfolio, you likely have a significant opportunity to pay less tax, give more, improve your personal cash flow, and simplify your giving. For more information on how to give these types of securities to DCC, email giving@downtowncornerstone.org.

Charitable Gift Annuities

A CGA is a simple arrangement that involves a charitable gift and an annuity. You make the gift (part of which is tax deductible), and then you receive fixed annuity payments each year for the remainder of your life. If you wish, you can have the payments go to a family member or friend instead. We partner with the National Christian Foundation (NCF) to set up charitable gift annuities. The annuity is a legally binding contract, and they have never missed an annuity payment. To learn more, contact the NCF Northwest Team.

Real Estate

Many property owners have a heart to give but feel hindered by limited cash flow and ever-growing taxes. If that’s you, NCF can help you leverage your real estate so you can invest more money into the spread of the Gospel and the planting of churches. DCC partners with the National Christian Foundation (NCF) to provide comprehensive information regarding your real estate property and giving. Whether you own a beachfront home or a family farm, the team at NCF is there to help. By giving real estate before the sale, instead of writing checks to churches, you’ll improve your cash flow, reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes, and be able to give more away to further the spread of the gospel. To learn more, contact the NCF Northwest Team.

Business Interests

If you’re running a business, the NCF Charitable Shareholder strategy allows you to donate a non-voting interest, receive a substantial tax deduction, and still maintain management oversight. If you’re one of the select entrepreneurs who has the opportunity to sell your successful company for a sizeable gain, NCF can help you maximize your sale—and leave a lasting impact. To learn more, contact the NCF Northwest Team.
