Can you think of a better return on investment than knowing that you can make an immediate and lasting impact on the life a child? Prayerfully consider the various ways you may best support a Meadowbrook Christian School student.
Check or Credit Card – Direct donations may be made by check, money order, bank draft, or credit card. The applicable income-tax deduction reduces the actual cost of the gift.
Gifts of Stock – By transferring securities you own, you can avoid capital gains taxes and still deduct the full-market value of the stocks, bonds or mutual funds.
Personal Property – A contribution of real estate, valuable collections, or other asset that Meadowbrook may sell can generate a tax deduction equivalent to the proceeds and save on capital gains taxed at higher rates than if you sell it yourself.
In-Kind Gifts – Donation of tangible goods or services that relate to Meadowbrook’s charitable purposes, such as books, educational equipment, construction materials or similar resources, can be fully tax deductible at fair-market value.
Matching Gifts – Many companies will match the charitable contributions of their employees. Simply check with your human resources office and submit a matching-gift form to Meadowbrook.
Deferred or Planned Gifts – Through a will, trust or life insurance policy, you may name Meadowbrook Christian School as a beneficiary for a percentage or fixed amount after death. When families demonstrate generosity through a deferred or planned gift, it’s a special tribute to the way lives have been transformed through their Meadowbrook experience. It also ensures the donors’ intentions are carried out after this life in order to benefit future generations of students.
We would be happy to provide further information or meet with you and/or your professional advisor about any of these gifting opportunities. Please feel free to contact Gaynel Carrier to discuss what best advances your interests and the mission of Meadowbrook Christian School.
