Other Ways to Give

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support The Chrisit Center.

Donor-advised funds can easily be set up through a community foundation or your financial institution.

When making a gift through your donor advised fund, you will need the information below:

Organization Name: The Christi Center
Address: 2306 Hancock Dr., Austin, TX 78756
Phone: 512-467-2600
Tax ID: 74-2463672

Legacy Giving

Will and Living Trust

When writing you Will, please include The Christi Center and your legacy will continue after your lifetime. No charitable gifts can be made from your estate without a stated designation through a will. To do so, please use the following bequest language:

“I, [name], give, devise and bequeath to The Christi Center, Inc., the sum of [$ ______ or ____ % of my estate].”

Life Insurance, Retirement Plans

Not everyone wants to commit to making a gift in their wills or estates. Some prefer the increased flexibility that a beneficiary designation provides by using:

  • IRAs and retirement plans
  • Life insurance policies
  • Commercial annuities

It only takes three simple steps to make this type of gift. Here's how to name The Christi Center as a beneficiary:

  1. Contact your retirement plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution for a change-of-beneficiary form.
  2. Decide what percentage (1 to 100) you would like us to receive and name us, along with the percentage you chose, on the beneficiary form.
  3. Return the completed form to your plan administrator, insurance company, bank or financial institution.

The Christi Center cannot provide direct legal or financial advice related to planned giving, and advises all individuals to seek independent counsel from qualified estate planning attorneys and wealth managers before making a decision on a planned gift.
