Memorial Donations

When we receive a memorial gift in a person’s honor, Criswell College sends an acknowledgement to the family member you specify. Through the giving page, you can specify the memorial information. If you would prefer to make the gift over the phone, call us at 214.818.1353.

Non-Cash Gifts

Non-cash gifts are donations of assets other than cash such as: stock, real estate, equipment, etc. These gifts are valued by the donor and receipt acknowledged by Criswell College. Acceptance of gifts-in-kind often depends on the college’s ability to use the gift in accomplishing its mission.

Endowment Fund

Giving to the Endowment Fund is an ongoing investment in the college. Your gift will have a permanent impact on the college’s ability to produce leaders who can bring real transformation to the culture.

Capital Gifts

Capital gifts allow the college to achieve a greater potential to impact more lives today and in the future by improving and expanding the infrastructure of our campus. These updates are necessary in order to equip our professors and staff for their best work, and to create the kind of learning environment commensurate with the caliber of education we provide students.
