Gifts for Today

Make a donation of cash, stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to Corpus Christi and you will receive charitable tax credits (tax receipt).

  • Gifts of Cash | The simple cash gift is the most widespread form of charitable giving. If you choose to donate a gift of cash to Corpus Christi, you will receive a donation receipt for the full amount of your gift.

  • Gifts of Cash Corporate Matching Gifts | Many companies encourage their employees to contribute to charities by offering a "matching gift" program. This means the company will donate funds equal to your contribution to the same fund, effectively doubling the gift. Check with your employer to see if they offer a charitable gift matching program. 

 

  • Gifts of Securities | Publicly traded securities include shares, bonds and mutual funds. In 2006, the government announced the elimination of the capital gains tax on such donations. Shares gifted to Corpus Christi directly through our brokerage account will receive a donation receipt for the value of these gifts.

  • Gifts-In-Kind | A gift-in-kind is a non-cash donation and includes items such as personal effects, artwork and real estate. Gifts valued at over $1,000, must be accompanied by an independent third-party appraisal (cost of appraisal is to be paid by the donor). A donation receipt will be issued for the fair market value of the gift.
