Thank you for your interest in making a donation to the Center for Sustainable Stewardship. We are able to continue in the pursuit of delivering our mission and vision with the philanthropic support from friends like you.

Many employers will match gifts that their employees make to nonprofits. Information on gift-matching programs can be found on, and you can always ask your employer directly about matching your gift to CSS.

Securities or stocks also make effective gifts. You are entitled to deductions for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift, plus you pay no tax on the capital gain value of the gift shares. A deduction of up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income is available, with a five-year carry-over of excess deductions. 


Legacy gifts play a vital role in the future of CSS as we continue to ensure our sustainability and expand our reach in the world. Legacy gifts, also known as planned gifts, include bequests made in a will, beneficiary designations of a life insurance policy or retirement plan, and others.

CSS accepts legacy gift requests in a variety of fashions from naming a room or facility after the donor to planting a tree or placing a bench in their honor. If you have a specific request, we will work with you to make it happen.

Checks may be mailed to: Center for Sustainable Stewardship PO BOX 6 Franklin, TN 37065
