Giving

There are many ways to give to CEO: whether by credit or debit card or even transfer of stock, and of course the old standby, your check. We thank you for supporting our work. For all methods of giving, please see the important information (The Fine Print*) below.

*The Fine Print
CEO is a tax exempt non profit organization under 501(c)(3) of the IRS code; it is qualified to receive tax deductible donations. Contributions are solicited and received with the understanding that Christian Educators Outreach has complete control over the use of donated funds. In keeping with guidelines provided by the IRS for tax deductability of your donation, we will make every effort to use donated funds according to the preference of our donors, while maintaining control of donated funds for our mission. To indicate your preference simply write “preference for ________” on the memo line if you are writing a check, or use the drop-down menu in EasyTithe.  CEO charges a 10% administrative fee for all partner-preferenced gifts.

Please remember that to count as a charitable donation for the tax year, the postmark must be on or before December 31 on your end of year gift by check or completed online by 11:59 pm on December 31, per the IRS.

Give by check

mail your check (made payable to CEO or Christian Educators Outreach) to:

CEO
P.O. Box 6578
Charlottesville, VA
22906

Give online with your debit or credit card
(you can now set up an automatic monthly gift!)

* We have changed our primary online giving company to EasyTithe, which charges a much lower percentage for ACH/EFT drafts from your checking account.  You can also pay via debit or credit card through this site. Should you choose to pay with a bank draft, CEO will receive 99% of your gift.

Matching Gifts

You may have the opportunity to double or even triple the value of your gift. Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees as part of the benefits package. Please contact your Human Resources Office to learn more about your company’s matching gift policy and to determine if you are eligible for a matching gift or click here.

Stock Gifts

Donors are discovering the ease and added benefits of giving gifts of appreciated securities. Often giving a gift of stock can create tax savings for the donor while fulfilling their philanthropic wishes, creating a double benefit!!

An electronic transfer is the easiest way to make a gift of stock. Provide your broker with the following information:

Gifts of Goods

Some of CEO’s ministries benefit from the donation of goods as well as money.  Should you choose to give items to a particular ministry, CEO will gladly write you a receipt for your donation. Property or gifts-in-kind received will be acknowledged by describing the gift accurately but without a statement of the gift’s market value. It is the responsibility of the giver to determine the fair market value of the property for tax deduction purposes.

CEO is accredited by ECFA.
