Gifts That Make an Impact Now
The Unfailing Truth Found In God’s Word
If you would like to spread the unfailing truth found in God’s Word today, consider the giving options below — many of which have financial and personal benefits to you.
Recommend a grant now from your donor-advised fund
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is an easy-to-establish, flexible vehicle for charitable giving. When you establish a DAF through the Dallas Seminary Foundation or other fund provider, you receive an income tax deduction in the year you make contributions. You can then spread your charitable giving over time to support the causes you care about, like the Dallas Theological Seminary. In this way, your DAF becomes like a personal charitable checking account.
If you already have a DAF, you can now initiate a grant recommendation using the link below. Simply start typing in your fund provider name and the system will prompt you through the process.

Memorial or Tribute Gift
When you give a memorial or tribute gift for Dallas Theological Seminary to honor someone special, you are expressing your love, admiration, and gratitude in one of the most meaningful ways there is. Your gift will honor your loved one, create a lasting tribute, and equip godly servant-leaders for the proclamation of His Word.
Gifts of Securities
You can use stocks, bonds, and mutual funds that have appreciated in value to support our shared vision. You may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value of the security (up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income) and avoid paying the capital gains tax on any increase in the value of the stock.
Matching Gift Opportunities
Would you like to maximize the impact of your giving and encourage other supporters to mobilize on behalf of theological students and the people they serve? Consider sponsoring a matching gift challenge. Donate a pool of funds to Dallas Theological Seminary, from which we will match any donation made within a given period of time. In this way, you can double the impact of your giving.
Qualified Charitable Distribution
You can transfer funds from your IRA directly to Dallas Theological Seminary. This is an effective way to have an immediate impact and ensure our work of training students to preach, teach, and live out the Gospel around the world. Here’s how it works:
- You must be 70 ½ or older.
- An individual may transfer up to a total of $100,000 per year and a married couple may give up to $200,000.
- Your gift must be transferred directly from the IRA account to DTS.
- Your gift is a transfer of funds from your IRA to DTS so it does not create taxable income for you and is not considered a charitable tax deduction.
- If you are 72 and older, the transfer of funds counts towards your annual Required Minimum Distribution from your IRA.
