Frequently Asked Questions

How can I set up a monthly gift?

Visit this donation link and select “Show my support by making this a monthly donation” or give us a call at 650-569-0909 and we’ll set it up with a credit card or EFT.

How can I transfer appreciated stock or IPO stock?

Easy. Access the stock form here or give us a call at 650-569-0909 and we’ll share a form for your broker.

I have a Donor Advised Fund; can Aslan accept a distribution?

Yes!
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.

Can you help me with the legal work involved in transferring a home?

Absolutely.
Our CEO is an attorney and would love to help you. Reach out to
nicole@aslan.org for help and coordination with our legal team.

My employer matches donations, does Aslan qualify?

Yes.
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.

Can I make a pledge instead of an outright gift now?

Yes, please!
We don’t need all the cash at once, so this is a great option. Send our CEO an email at nicole@aslan.org to set it up.

Can I make a gift from my estate?

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!). nicole@aslan.org

Will funds I give benefit only PCC?

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 nicole@aslan.org

How can we be sure that Aslan has the expertise to manage all of this?

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.

We know these FAQs can’t anticipate every question.
We are happy to talk further. Just call! 650-569-0909
