Mail your gift to our office or utilize your bank’s Online Bill Pay–a free service with most major banks. Get instructions here!

Our Office Address:
Fellowship of Christian University Students

Garland, TX 75042

** Please make the check out to “FOCUS” and put the initials of the staff member you wish to honor with your support under account number or in the memo line.

2. Give Online

You may give online using a credit/debit card, or save on fees with an ACH/bank transfer.

Credit/Debit fees are 2.3% + $0.30 per transaction, while ACH payments are only 25 cents.

Lower fees = more money for ministry!

3. Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of charitable investment account that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, and allows you to recommend grants to charities of your choice over time.

Granting to FOCUS through your DAF is simple and easy. You can recommend a gift to FOCUS today, or on a recurring basis (monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually).

Please use the following information when granting through your donor-advised fund:

Garland, TX 75042

4. Gifts of Stock

Donating shares of stock can save you from paying capital gains tax on their earnings, while also investing in bringing vibrant Christian community to university campuses.

Please download our Stock Transfer Form for further instructions. And if you decide to make a gift of stock, please send us the completed form so we can properly acknowledge your gift for tax purposes!

5. IRA Gifts

If you are 70 1/2 or older, you can make a contribution of up to $100,000 annually from your IRA account to invest in campus missions and potentially receive a tax benefit.

A donation transferred directly from your IRA administrator to FOCUS is generally not considered taxable income on your federal income tax return, but it does count toward your required minimum distribution. As always, please consult your advisors to determine if this type of gift is right for you.

Ask your IRA administrator for specific instructions for making this type of gift, or feel free to use our sample letter to help you make a charitable rollover gift to FOCUS.

6. Foundations

Foundations open doors for ministry opportunities that would otherwise be closed to us. While our staff raise salary support, that does not provide funds for other things we’d love to do! Foundation grants and gifts could allow us to invest in projects such as:

  • Special outreach displays and materials to use on campus
  • Bringing in PhD-level speakers to engage the broader campus communities on spiritual topics
  • Providing low-cost housing for our pastoral apprentices by purchasing a ministry house near campus
  • Developing an app for our one-on-one Bible study called FOCUS on Jesus
  • Investing in further staff development through seminary classes or conferences such as the Global Leadership Summit

These are just a few “wish list” items that we could pursue with additional funding.

If you’d like to send an unrestricted gift by check, please mail it to:

FOCUS
318 N. Shiloh Road
Garland, TX 75042

If you’re interested in making a restricted gift for a particular purpose only, or if you have other general questions, please contact Casey Worsham at 469-222-4906 or casey@anyfocus.org.

FOCUS is a faith-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all gifts are tax-deductible. Your contribution is made with the understanding that FOCUS maintains complete control and administration over the use of the donated funds, and we do so with the sole mission of making and maturing disciples to God’s glory on our campuses.

*If you have general questions please contact casey@anyfocus.org.
