Giving statements for 2018

We are so thankful for each and every donation that came in last year! God is doing amazing things in and around 3Crosses! Below are some quick FAQ about giving statements:

When are the sent out?

Giving statements for 2018 will be EMAILED out before the end of January, 2019. If we do not have an email for you, we will send it in the mail. 

What if I don't have an email?

No problem! We will automatically snail mail any statements that we don't have an email address for. 

I moved and/or got a new email address - how can I update it? 

Easy! Please just email us at  and let us know your new info. We will update our records. 

What if I didn't receive my statement? 

We are happy to help! We are thankful to have so many donations to record each year, but we're only human so we are bound to make a mistake now and then. Sometimes it's as simple as someone having the same name as you. Whatever the issues, we are happy to resolve it. Please just email us at

I got my statement, but I have a question(s). 

Again, we are happy to help! Please send us an email to  and we will get right back to you.

DURING A WORSHIP SERVICE:
Place your cash or check in the offering plate at any service. Remember, you will only receive a tax receipt if your name and address are clearly identifiable on your check or giving envelope. Unfortunately, we are unable to give tax receipts for unidentified or loose cash.

MAIL A CHECK
Paper checks (please don't send cash):
3Crosses Church
Attn: Finance Dept.
20600 John Drive
Castro Valley, CA 94546

Checks are recorded on the postmark date on the envelope.
Electronic checks: If your bank has automated bill pay, you can designate 3Crosses to receive electronically generated checks.

STOCKS & MUTUAL FUNDS
3Crosses is able to accept stock and mutual fund donations. For more information please contact us at

DONOR ADVISED FUNDS
You can make a gift to 3Crosses via a Donor Advised Fund. Please keep in mind that your tax receipt will be issued by the fund, not by 3Crosses. If you wish to make a gift toward a pledge, please be sure to notify the Donor Advised Fund so that we know to record the gift as such. 3Crosses' tax ID is 94-1565322.

IRA CONTRIBUTIONS
If you are age 70 1/2 or older, you can do something special with your IRA while reducing your tax burden: you can transfer up to $100,000 each year from your IRA account to a qualified charity (501c3). 

When you make this transfer directly to your charity, you will receive several benefits:

  1. Your gift counts against your required minimum distribution
  2. The gift does not add to your adjusted gross income so it does not impact future Medicare income calculations, which may lead to higher premiums
  3. Making your gift directly to the charity avoids the percentage limitation on charitable contributions

Please check with your IRA administrator or your tax advisor for more information about how you can multiply the impact of your IRA.
