Frequently Asked Questions

How do I become a member?

Gifts of $1,000 or more during the calendar year will qualify you for annual membership in Crown Cornerstone. Gifts may be made in one payment or as multiple gifts throughout the year. A commitment of $84 per month, for example, will achieve this level of giving and qualify for membership.

What about my spouse?

Both spouses are members of Crown Cornerstone with household giving of $1,000 or more within a calendar year.

What types of gifts count toward membership?

Unrestricted dollars are currently our greatest need, but if you wish to dedicate your gifts to a particular program, scholarship or endowment, these gifts will also apply toward Crown Cornerstone membership. Gifts via check, credit card, or monthly or quarterly automatic withdrawal are all accepted. Transfer of stock or other appreciated securities are also welcome.

What if my employer will match my gift?

Your employer’s matching gift will be credited toward the $1,000 required for your membership. Corporations, small businesses, churches, organizations and foundations may also become Crown Cornerstone members with direct gifts and grants to Crown College.

Are there benefits for members of Crown Cornerstone?

Yes! Members will receive special news updates and messages from the President. They will also enjoy reserved seating at Crown College events and be invited to an annual members-only celebration. We will also recognize Crown Cornerstone members in various college publications.
