As we continue to strive for excellence in all phases of our school, please know your help is needed now and in the future. We are in the process of starting to plan for the next phases of school improvement, which include:
I would like to pose the question: What mission and investment could be more important than helping your school equip your children, to impact the world for Jesus Christ?
Please partner with us!
Here are the 4 easiest and most beneficial ways for you to give to GCA:
1. Give cash. Cash is an easy way to give each year and can be used to prepay a pledge. To make a one-time gift or a monthly pledge over a three year period, go to GCAGIVE.COM or we would love to talk to you.
2. Give appreciated stock or other property/real estate. When you give stock or property to GCA, we’ll sell it and you won’t have to pay all the capital gains tax you would have paid had you sold it yourself. Your gift will be deductible at its full fair market value on its date of delivery if you have held it for more than one year.
3. Invest in a life income plan, or another of the charitable estate planning strategies that are available. A life income gift provides you with payments for the rest of your life and GCA with support thereafter. If you use appreciated securities that you’ve owned longer than a year to fund the gift, you will be entitled to an income tax deduction based, in part, on the charitable portion of the securities’ full value, in addition to eliminating up-front capital gains tax.
4. Donate an insurance policy. A gift of a life insurance policy you no longer need makes a perfect year-end gift. To qualify as a deductible gift, GCA must become the policy owner. For most types of insurance policies, your tax deduction is usually the cost basis or the fair market value of the policy—whichever is less. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
Please continue to be in prayer for our school.
