Ways To Give

When they left to tell others about the Lord, they decided not to accept help from anyone who wasn’t a follower. We must support people like them, so that we can take part in what they are doing to spread the truth. 3 John 7–8, CEV

Every gift matters! Your financial partnership helps young men and women both come to faith and grow in faith at Stanford University, and then launch forth to serve God in the culture and in the Church.

The bulk of our funding comes through recurring monthly and annual donations from friends of the ministry. The remainder comes from special gifts (year‐end donations, church offerings, support from unexpected occasions such as an inheritance, bonus or promotion). Because Chi Alpha is a non‐profit organization, all gifts are tax‐deductible.

There are a number of ways you can give:

Give Online

MAKE A DONATION

This is the easiest way to give. Gifts to this account go to our general missionary fund which is administered by the Assemblies of God.

Matching Gifts

Many companies have matching gift programs which double contributions made to nonprofit organizations, so be sure to ask if your company does. If so, obtain and fill out a matching gift form from your human resources department and send it along with your contribution to:

Assemblies of God U.S. Missions
Attn: Finance Department
1445 N. Boonville Avenue
Springfield, MO 65802–1894

Our EIN is 26–4580872 . We are also listed on Benevity and on Guidestar.

Giving With A Check

If you prefer to write a check, make it out to Assemblies of God and write Chi Alpha #265029 in the memo field (putting the account number in the memo field is very important as there are over 300 Chi Alpha groups). Please also print and send in this form with your first check (small PDF, around 100k).

Mail your contribution to

Chi Alpha
Attn: Finance Department
1445 N Boonville Ave
Springfield, MO 65802–1894

Designate a Gift

If you prefer to designate your gift for a specific purpose, you can specify how you want your gift used at xastanford.generush.org — gifts to this account are handled directly by our ministry and so your end‐of‐year giving receipt will come from us directly and not from the Assemblies of God.

Making A Gift Of Stock

A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. If the stock has appreciated, you also avoid a capital gains tax on the appreciation.

If the stock you hold is in a brokerage account, you can easily arrange a transfer to our brokerage account.

Morgan Stanley Smith Barney
1535 E. Primrose Street, Suite D
Springfield, MO 65804–5901
Attn: Doug Dugal
Phone: 417–885-1618
Account number: 573–115706-188
DTC: 0015

And then contact Assemblies of God Treasury Services to them know about your gift.

Aron Vad, Assemblies of God Treasury Services
Phone: 417–862-2781 ext. 3227
email: avad@ag.org

Be sure to tell him that you want the gift to go to towards our ministry at Stanford (account 265029) and please also contact us to let us know you are making the gift. You can email us at chialpha@stanford.edu or call (650) 353‑7740

Planned Giving

If you would like to leave a bequest to Chi Alpha, you can do so through the Assemblies of God Foundation, a pass‐through foundation which allows you to designate your gift to the ministry of your choice while providing top‐notch administrative support. Learn more from Assemblies of God Financial Services. You may contact them at 866.621.1787 or plannedgiving@agfinancial.org if you have any questions. 

Using Amazon Smile

If you shop on Amazon, please consider supplementing your giving to Chi Alpha by designating our ministry as your Amazon Smile beneficiary. The amounts involved are not large: Amazon donates just one half of one percent. That means that if you spend $1000 on Amazon then Chi Alpha will only receive $5. Still, it adds up and is an easy way to bless us!

It is important to remember that Amazon will only credit us if you shop at a URL beginning with smile.amazon.com, so we encourage you to install an extension or plugin for your browser to make sure you always purchase from the correct URL. There’s an extension for Chrome, an add‐on for Firefox, and an extension for Safari.
