Path to the Promised Land
Look, if homeownership is the Promised Land of stability and building a future, then renting in the market is Egypt! Aslan helps staff cross over instead of letting them wander around in the housing wilderness alone.
Your generosity is of practical help and profound engagement. Instead of insecurity and fear for the future, staff can plan for a future here. You will provide safe, simple homes they can afford to rent and get them on a path to save for the next step on the Road to the Promised Land— homeownership.
Aslan’s vision is a Peninsula with thriving ministries powered by thriving staff. The biggest threat? Lack of affordable housing for singles and couples in the entry-to-mid career segment. You can change that!
You can fulfil the law of Christ by bearing the burdens of staff. You can build the Kingdom because there is less churn and chaos at the church. You!
Imagine the impact! Because of you, emerging leaders in student and family ministries have affordable homes. Because of you, PE+, Preschool, and School Age Child Care can recruit and retain gifted workers.
Other Ways to Give
As a public charity, Aslan offers the highest tax-deductibility available to donors.
Frequently Asked Questions
Just tell your advisor: Aslan Housing Foundation, EIN: 83-0913511, for the purpose of Path To The Promised Land, and how you’d like to be recognized. They know the drill.
Aslan does not discriminate in housing and therefore corporate matches are a no-brainer. Give your liaison our EIN: 83-0913511. We are also listed on Benevity.
Bequests are such a game-changer!
Yes, please, join the other donors who have done the same thing with Aslan. Imagine, if PCC had been included in estates these last 20 years, how much more we would already have to tackle staff housing. We can provide you with language to take to your wills and trusts lawyer. We can also suggest Christ-followers who specialize in this area of law if you are not already represented. Our CEO is an attorney and can get you pointed in the right direction, but she will not represent you herself (conflict alert!). firstname.lastname@example.org
All assets Aslan receives from the corporate entity of PCC are dedicated to PCC staff housing and are accounted for strictly. All assets at Aslan from any source are irrevocably dedicated to religious purposes. As a Type III Functionally Integrated Supporting Organization of PCC, all of our work fulfills the mission of PCC. This unique mix of flexibility and fidelity allows us to serve PCC’s mission broadly. It also provides an oversight mechanism that the state and federal public agencies (IRS, BOE, AG) track. As PCC itself has come to realize, restricted gifts from individual donors are a hassle to administer. You can certainly restrict your gift to Aslan, but it ties the hands of Aslan if you make the restriction super strict. If you feel strongly about imposing restrictions, let us know and we can accommodate your request. We take this aspect of stewardship and trust very seriously. Reach our CEO at email@example.com
Glad you asked!
Aslan’s board has three former PCC Officers (our CEO, Chair, and Treasurer). The board is comprised of an architect, a builder, a wealth manager, a real estate agent, a city planner, a CFO, a marketing whiz, an HR professional, an Airbnb host, a property manager, an insurance expert, and an attorney. We have an amazing tech stack. Our accountants and bookkeeper are experienced with ministries throughout Silicon Valley and we file annual returns with the IRS. We have a Platinum Seal from Guidestar. We report to PCC quarterly and the ECC annually. We’re very transparent and take our stewardship seriously.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us… Ephesians 3:20
- Key Concept: God’s capacity and imagination exceed ours
The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching. For Scripture says, “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain,” and “The worker deserves his wages.”
1 Timothy 5:17-18
- Key Concept: We are called to honor ministry professionals through provision.
Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2
- Key Concept: Obedience to Christ requires us to support one another.
Don’t you know that those who serve in the temple get their food from the temple, and that those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel.
1 Corinthians 9:13-14
- Key Concept: It is a command of God that ministry professionals receive their living from their church community.
