While cash and pledges are the most common methods for giving, the following gift options are also available, and many offer considerable tax benefits.
Appreciated Securities – Giving stocks and bonds that have been held for more than one year provide even greater tax benefits than giving cash. If the appreciated security is given to a qualified charitable organization, such as Athens Christian School, the donor avoids capital gains tax and most likely will qualify for a tax deduction on the entire value of the charitable gift. The simplest way to transfer securities is to have your broker contact the School Office.
Life Insurance Gift – Give a life insurance policy with Athens Christian School as owner and beneficiary.
Estate – Leave a legacy by making a gift in your will to Athens Christian School. A bequest is one of the simplest ways to remember those you care about most.
OTHER WAYS TO HELP ACS
Athens Christian School is a private, non-profit, 501-c3 corporation which is not supported by church funds or government funds. We set our tuition and fees to an affordable level so that we can serve as many families as possible. For example, this includes capping tuition to 2 and ½ students for larger families.
We have a wonderful group of faculty and staff with great ideas for improving the educational and extra-curricular opportunities that we can offer at ACS. We invite you to become more involved as the Lord has blessed you. We encourage your support for building projects, to purchase equipment, and to support operations. Your gifts are tax deductible as allowed for 501-c3 organization. Many companies and businesses have matching giving programs for qualified organizations. This is an excellent way to multiply your giving. We are happy to help with documentation for these matching funds.
