Designated Giving

Our Mission at Cornerstone is “Helping People Know Jesus and Make Him Known.” We help spread the message of Jesus right here in West Michigan not only at our campuses, but in partnership with several missions and nonprofits. We also go beyond our borders and send mission teams to Kenya and Mexico, and support mission partners abroad.

Ministry Designation

Cornerstone Ministries

Giving here provides for the ongoing operations of Cornerstone Church, including outreach, benevolence, all individual ministries, salaries, facilities and our mortgage.

Mexico Designation

Student Mission Trip: Mexico

Some of Cornerstone's high school juniors and seniors will be spending their Christmas Break serving and reaching the Acuña community in the name of Jesus! Your gifts help pay the costs for students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to go.

Worthit Designation

Worth It

Cornerstone is blessed to be growing! But with that growth, we’re experiencing overcrowded spaces, mainly in the areas that impact our kids and student ministries. Worth It is about addressing these areas of need.

Non-Cash Giving
Other Ways to Give

*Important Note: This material has been prepared for informational purposes only. Before making any non-cash gifts, you should consult your own tax, legal and/or accounting advisor.

Charitable IRA Rollover

Under extended charitable individual retirement accounts (IRA) legislation, you can make charitable gifts to nonprofit organizations using funds from your individual retirement accounts (IRAs) without negative tax effects. This applies to you only if you're 70½ years old or older.

Securities

Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it’s been held for more than one year. Giving this kind of gift not only helps nonprofits; you as the giver receive significant benefits.

Savings Bonds

There’s more than one way to turn your savings bonds into charitable donations while reducing the tax liability generated by these secure investments.

Real Estate

Your property opens the door to a unique giving opportunity to help nonprofits. You’ll be helping a good cause, enjoying tax benefits, and potentially setting up a lifetime stream of income.

Closely Held Stock

A donation of your closely held stock can be a great way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.

Life Insurance

Most of us think of life insurance only as protection, especially for our loved ones. But it can also be a powerful tool you can use to assist nonprofits.

These are just a few of the ways you can assist nonprofit organizations. If you have questions, please contact Mark Troy, Cornerstone’s Generosity Team Lead, at im.marktroy@gmail.com.
