Yes, Campus Outreach is registered as 501©3 nonprofit organization under Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, AL. All gifts given to Campus Outreach are tax deductible.

Please visit the staff page, select the staff member's giving page and choose "Assets" under "What would you like to donate?". Follow the steps outlined on the giving page. iDonate (our online giving platform) will send you the required forms to fill out, sign and submit back to them to complete the stock transfer process.

Under the guidance in IRC 170, the following elements must be met for a donation to be a charitable contribution and tax deductible; the gift must be made for the use of the qualified charitable organization, the gift must be made without adequate consideration (quid pro quo), the gift is made without the donor receiving something of value for payment and the gift is made with the donor relinquishing all dominion and control over the gift. There are established court rulings that have set the precedence that refunding a charitable contribution implies that any gift made to the ministry is not a charitable contribution. Accordingly, Campus Outreach does not refund donations solicited by a specific staff member or volunteer of the ministry if that person leaves the ministry.
