Ways to Give
Gifts of Stock
Cornerstones accepts gifts of appreciated securities. This can be a tax-efficient way to give. To make a gift of stock, please email email@example.com for stock transfer instructions.

Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) of up to $100,000 to support Cornerstones’ mission each year. These donations not only support our stability-building programs but can also be a tax-efficient way to give. You avoid the income tax on the donated portion of your required minimum distribution if you are 72 (70 ½ before January 1, 2020) or older. If you’re interested in learning more about QCDs, please reach out to Development@cornerstonesva.org.
Recurring gifts provide an opportunity to stay engaged with the work that Cornerstones is doing throughout the year. To start your recurring gift on a monthly or quarterly basis, please visit this link.
Honor and Memorial Gifts
Honor a friend, family member, or neighbor by making a donation in their name or memory to Cornerstones. Your donation of remembrance will have a lasting impact on our Northern Virginia community. If possible, we will notify your loved one(s) of your gift.
Planned gifts provide long-term support for our community, while also helping donors accomplish their financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals.
