Ways to support Grace Christian School:

Gifts of Cash
A gift of cash (or check) is the simplest and most immediate way to give to Grace Christian School. Cash gifts may be given outright or pledged. Checks should be made payable to Grace Christian School. An unrestricted gift for the greatest needs of the school is of a particular benefit, but gifts may be designated for specific purposes.

Memorial Gifts
Gifts to remember or honor a relative or friend are a wonderful way to assist the school’s efforts.

Naming Opportunities
There are several opportunities on campus to leave your legacy by placing your family’s name. Currently we are expanding our campus with the addition of a South Building and Gymnasium. See the brochure here for more information on this.

Installments
You may wish to make your donations to Grace Christian School in convenient monthly or quarterly installments. This is easily accomplished by using our secure online donation link on the website. You may have the installments processed through your credit card or bank account.

Gifts of Stock
Common stock or other securities are appropriate gifts to be transferred to Grace Christian School. Gifts of appreciated securities may interest donors who have held stock and have seen its value increase significantly. An outright gift of appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains tax and, in most cases, the full fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer can be claimed as a charitable gift deduction. For official tax purpose verification please check with your tax advisor.

Matching Gifts
Thousands of companies match gifts of employees to educational institutions. The donor fills out a form supplied by his or her company and sends it to Grace Christian School along with his or her gift. Matching gifts are credited to the donors’ records; for example, a $500 gift accompanied by a matching-gift form from a company, which matches 1:1 will make a $1,000 gift from the donor.

A Bequest
A memorial gift can be outlined in your will or added as a codicil. This allows you to perpetuate your personal dedication and remember the good works of Grace Christian School.

You can leave:
A percentage of your estate
The residue of your estate
Identified property
A specific dollar amount
