Planned Giving


Through planned giving, you can partner with CrossNet in offering help and hope, as you achieve your overall financial, tax and estate planning goals. 

There are a variety of ways that can help you give more, in tax beneficial ways, that can also provide income to you along with your gift. A gift of appreciated assets can provide an immediate income tax deduction and reduce capital gains taxes with options including stocks, bonds, and other securities, retirement assets, life insurance and real estate. 

We’ve partnered with Everence® to help you in exploring your planned giving options. Take a look at the various ways you can partner with CrossNet and make a long-term impact in the community!

Wills and Legacy Planning

Giving through your will is one of the easiest planned gifts to make. See how you can include giving to us as part of peace-of-mind planning in your will, trust and estate. You can view the gift intention form here.

Donor advised Fund

A donor advised fund is like a giving checking account. It’s a great tool to make gifts of appreciated assets such as stock, farm commodities, or real estate. Include us in your recommended charitable distributions or set up an account for a flexible, streamlined way to direct charitable gifts to us.

Types of Gifts

Discover new roads of generosity by making gifts of assets, such as stocks and bonds, real estate, life insurance, farm commodities, retirement assets, and even valuable collections.

Charitable gift annuities

Do you have savings you would like to give in the future, but you still need income from? A gift annuity is a gift planning option that lets you share your heart for our mission, receive a tax deduction now, and also receive steady payments for life.

charitable trusts

Make a gift that will also provide you and your family income. Set aside and direct your assets to our organization and to your heirs – or even back to you – in a way that best fits your needs.

Everence Charitable Services is administered by Everence Foundation and Everence Trust Company.*

Gift annuity payments are dependent on the financial ability of the issuing entity to pay.
