How to Give

“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give…”   ~ 2 Cor 9:7A

For all giving options, we recommend you consult your Tax and/or Financial Advisor for details.


Pledges are key to project planning and to reaching our goals. Most donors will choose to make a pledge over the three-year pledge period. These pledges will be payable in cash, through electronic fund transfer or by credit/debit card, or wire transfer. This commitment can be fulfilled through monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual installments.

Note: We ask all donors to please complete a pledge form regardless of how you plan to give, because pledge records are the only way we can accurately plan the funding of construction.

Qualified Charitable Distribution

A qualified charitable distribution (QCD) is a tax-free donation from your individual retirement account (IRA) to a qualified charity. You must be age 70½ or older to make a qualified charitable distribution. A qualified charitable distribution is not included in your taxable income.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving is a process of carefully selecting the best method and assets for making a charitable gift.  Such a gift can enable you to take advantage of the tax laws to accomplish your financial and charitable goals.  There are a variety of tools and approaches.  Gifts made through family foundations, donor-advised funds, wills, trusts, retirement plans, or charitable annuities are typical forms of planned gifts.

Life Insurance

You may donate to the campaign by making the new school the owner and beneficiary of your insurance policy.

Corporate Matching Gifts

A matching gift program provided through your employer or board membership may allow you to increase the value of your gift.  Some companies match charitable gifts of employees, retirees or board members.

Real Estate

Gifts of real estate, including personal residences, vacation homes, commercial properties, farms and unimprovied land, may provide exeptional tax benefits for the donor while providing support for the school.  Gifts of real estate will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Appreciated Stocks & Securities

Giving securities that have increased in value may allow you to take the current market price as a tax deduction.  You will owe no income tax or capital gains tax on the increase.
