Stock & Mutual Fund Gifts
For stock and mutual fund gifts, shares are transferred into an account owned by Cru Foundation. A Stock Administrator then sells the shares. Once the proceeds are received, it is deposited and credited according to your directions into the Fund.
Typically, you will need to alert your financial advisor or broker that you would like to contribute appreciated securities to Cru Foundation.
The advisor will then transfer the applicable shares using Cru Foundation’s transfer and broker account information (which can be found here). In some instances, the transfer can happen the same day that you make the request to your financial advisor. (Mutual funds can take additional time as the custodian might require additional processes.)
–>Please ALWAYS notify Cru Foundation of your gift transfer using the Stock Notification Form so that your gift is allocated appropriately. Email a copy of your completed form to email@example.com or call 800-449-5454 with any questions.
NOTE: The shares of stock arrive in our brokerage account without information about the person donating the shares nor the purpose of the gift. Please always notify us of your stock transfer.
You can donate cryptocurrency to a Great Commission Donor Advised Fund. Cru Foundation has partnered with Engiven to facilitate the transfer of cryptocurrency, which ultimately helps us to continue our mission to win, build and send Christ-centered multiplying disciples who launch spiritual movements everywhere so that everyone knows someone who truly follows Jesus.
The Engiven platform is a third-party vendor providing donation software technology that enables nonprofits to safely and securely receive cryptocurrency donations and then convert those donations into usable fiat currency, such as US dollars. Click the link below to get started.
Provide your Fund name or Fund ID number and the proceeds will be placed into the Fund.
For questions regarding contributions of cryptocurrency, please contact Cru Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-449-5454.
