Credit Card / Cash / Check / Money Order Contributions
Contributions can be given in the form of credit card, cash, check, or money order. You can send your check or money order to Christ the Cornerstone, to the attention of Office Administrator, at 9028 Westmore Road San Diego, CA 92126.
Gifts of Appreciated Assets
You can transfer appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares you have owned for one year or more to Christ the Cornerstone Academy or Church. These assets will be sold by Christ the Cornerstone and the proceeds allocated to the designation of your choice. You receive the benefit of an immediate income-tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer, no matter what you originally paid for them. You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold. Giving appreciated stock could be more beneficial to you than giving cash. Download this Christ the Cornerstone Securities Transfer Form and provide it to your broker or financial advisor. Send a copy of the completed form to Christ the Cornerstone, the attention of Office Administrator, at 9028 Westmore Road San Diego, CA 92126
IRA Distributions can be gifted to Christ the Cornerstone Academy or Church to reduce your income taxes or increase the amount you are able to donate to a qualified charity. IRA owners over the age of 70 ½ years of age can donate distributions directly. While you won’t get a tax deduction for your charitable gift, the IRA distribution would be excluded from your taxable income and would count toward your annual required minimum distribution (RMD). For more information, please contact us.

Each of you should give as you have decided in your heart to give. You should not be sad when you give, and you should not give because you feel forced to give. God loves the person who gives happily. 2 Corinthians 9:7
