Why Give?

When you give to Crown College, you’re giving more than just a donation. You’re investing in opportunities. Through Crown’s Opportunity Fund, you help create opportunities for students through scholarships. You open pathways for new academic programs to begin. You build up and support athletics and other programs. Your gift is used where the opportunity is greatest!

Give to the Opportunity Fund

You may choose other areas to designate your gift. Choose from the opportunities below:

  • Chapel Restoration
    Help restore the Heart of Crown.

    Crown’s Chapel is literally at the heart of the cross on campus, located in the center of the main building and serving as a place of worship. Students, alumni, faculty, and staff all love this heart of campus. However, after almost 50 years, not all areas of the Chapel have kept their original beauty and functionality. The ceiling has holes and water damage, the wooden walls are worn and scarred, and many of the pews need to be repaired or replaced. It’s time to restore the Chapel to its original quality and enhance its technology and seating to meet the needs of the college. Would you please consider financially supporting this critical project?

  • Cornerstone Gift

    To help advance Crown College and expand the influence of its graduates across the world, the College established the Crown Cornerstone giving group of alumni, friends and churches who support Crown College with financial support of $1,000 or more per calendar year.

    Cornerstone members receive updates on College successes and progress and are honored with a members-only dinner and priority seating at Christmas at Crown Chapel.

    We invite you to become a Cornerstone Member and partner with us to ensure that the opportunity to study and grow at Crown College continues to be excellent and affordable for Christians who deeply desire to be used by God in their future careers.

  • Coffee Club

    Through joining the Club with an annual gift of $120, members receive a custom-fired mug, hand-crafted by Deneen Pottery of St. Paul, MN. As an added bonus, when you bring your mug back to campus you will be treated with a free cup of coffee to welcome you back. Just as each year’s design will be 100% unique, so is the sense of community provided by Crown College. By using your Club mug, you will be able to hold in your hands a constant reminder of your time at Crown and the support you’re providing to help our community grow.

  • Endowed and Gift Scholarship Funds
    Ninety-eight percent of students receive financial support through scholarships. Many individuals and families have established funds to provide scholarships to existing students. Scholarship funds are established in one of two ways:
    Endowed Scholarships – a fund of $25,000 or more is established. After one year, the earnings from the fund are used to provide scholarships to students that have financial need and meet the criteria that the donors have established. Endowed scholarships are awarded year after year.
    Gift Scholarships – a fund is established by donors with criteria for eligible students. Funds are provided directly from the fund until the fund is totally distributed.
    If you have a scholarship that you would like to donate to please click Give Now. If you are interested in establishing a scholarship, please call Crown’s External Relations Office at 952-446-4342
  • Destination Serve

    At Crown we encourage students to learn and experience different cultures. We do this through having many international students as part of our student body, by requiring community service and by offering several Destination Serve mission trips. Students must raise their own funds for a Destination Serve trip. If you would like to donate to this program and / or for a specific student, please proceed to Give Now

    Stock

    Considering a gift of stock/securities? The information below will help you in knowing how to complete the gifting process. If you have questions or need further information or assistance, please contact our office at 952-446-4342, or toll-free at 1-800-646-2586, or email us at externalrelations@crown.edu.

    Why Give Stock/Securities?

    Federal and State tax laws offer special incentives for gifts of non-cash property, especially property that has appreciated since it was acquired.

    How Much is Deductible?

    • These types of gifts to charitable organizations and institutions are deductible from federal income tax returns for those who itemize.
    • The deduction is for the current fair market value of the securities given.
    • The deductible amount includes both what you paid and your gain. So, you may use the amount of the “paper profit” as a tax deduction even though it has never been taxed. This can dramatically reduce the cost of making a charitable gift and/or help increase the amount you can afford to give.

    Making the Gift

    After having made the decision of which security you would like to give and the total amount of your gift, you should complete the process with the assistance of your investment broker. The method chosen to make your gift will affect the date of transfer for valuation and other purposes.
