Generosity is not something God wants from you, it is something He wants for you. We are blessed to be a blessing (Genesis12:2). Your gifts impact churches, church plants, and ministries throughout the world. God’s work done through YOUR generosity. Ways to Give Automate the Important We encourage you to set up an automated giving schedule to have your “first fruits” go to the Lord every time. Our online giving portal lets you easily set up a recurring gift via your debit card, credit card, or checking account. Give via Check Checks can be made payable to “CrossRoad” and dropped off on campus, or mailed to CrossRoad 2818 Manhattan Beach Blvd.Gardena, CA 90249 Gift of Real Estate Under certain circumstances, the Lab accepts gifts of Real Estate. Donating appreciated Real Estate can afford you significant tax advantages while allowing a substantial gift to the Church that avoids capital gains taxes. Gift of Stocks & Mutual Funds Giving appreciated assets – such as stock – often allows you to maximize a gift. Typically, you can receive a tax deduction for the value of the stock on the day it was given, regardless of the cash basis (original purchase price) of the stock. Capital gains taxes are avoided. Estate Planning Setting up a well-designed estate plan may protect your loved ones from expensive probate taxes, allowing you to use the savings to leave a legacy gift for the Church. The Lab partners with financial planning ministries to provide free planning services to members of the church. Make a Tax Free IRA gift to The Lab If you are 70 1/2 or older, you may now instruct your IRA custodian to transfer any amount up to $100,000 directly to the Lab (CrossRoad). This distribution would not be included in your taxable income (but could fulfill any required minimum distribution requirements) and would not produce an income tax deduction.
