Simplify your giving while making a kingdom impact!
What if you could simplify your giving to all of your favorite ministries and charitable organizations, including Cru?
You can! And here’s the secret: A Great Commission Donor Advised Fund (GCDAF).
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a consolidated giving account. You can give all kinds of contributions intended for ministry into it today — like cash, stocks, real estate and even cryptocurrency — and then advise grants to ministry at a time that’s convenient for you.
In the meantime, the money inside the fund is actively invested until you go online and recommend grants to Cru, your church or other qualified charitable organizations. You can even advise grants anonymously.
Most DAF sponsors charge an administrative fee. But we share your desire to be the best stewards possible.
That’s why Cru Foundation has eliminated the administrative fee on a Great Commission Donor Advised Fund. And Fund investments are professionally managed for one-third of the typical cost.
This means more of your contribution is freed up to express the kindness of Jesus through Cru, your church or other charitable organizations that you support!
A GCDAF allows you to separate your tax deadlines from when you advise gifts to ministry, taking the pressure off you to figure it all out at once. The money is there when giving opportunities arise, allowing you to take advantage of ministry opportunities quickly.
And by donating appreciated stock into a GCDAF before selling, you receive an immediate charitable income tax deduction and it also shelters you from long-term capital gains taxes.
The illustration below shows how donating appreciated securities, including stocks or bonds, is an easy and tax-effective way for you to give.
Capital gains tax dollars are redirected to ministry and you receive a charitable tax deduction for the full value of the appreciated stock! With a GCDAF, you can unleash the true power of the assets God has entrusted to you to share the gospel around the world.
