Ways to Give
Individual and corporate sponsors
We recognize those businesses or individuals that support Christian education and have contributed $5,000 or more each school fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). Donors in this category are invited to a special dinner with the Head of School in the spring. During this time, the Head of School will share plans for the future school year and celebrate their generous gifts.
Gifts in Kind
Gifts in Kind are gifts of needed goods and services rather than money. These could be library books, computers, musical instruments, carpentry, printing services, etc. Grace Brethren is always grateful to accept items and services that can be beneficial to Grace students and staff. The Business Office recommends contacting a tax expert before giving items of high value such as property, vehicles, etc. due to the complex rules and regulations about valuation and tax credits.
These are gifts made in honor or in memory of a loved one that is a lasting tribute to others. Christmas, birthday/anniversary, a major life accomplishment, or the death of an individual may all be occasions for such special gifts.
Planned giving is a unique way to support Grace Brethren. In many cases planned giving can provide tax benefits as well as the satisfaction of seeing your gift working while you are alive. Cash, appreciated securities, a bequest through a will, life insurance, split interest gifts such as charitable remainder trusts or annuities, charitable lead trusts and retained life estates, are all ways to make a planned gift to Grace Brethren. As with all planned gifts, donors should consult legal and financial counsel before entering into any agreement.
If you should have questions regarding how to make a gift or to discuss various giving opportunities, please contact Tamara Maruhnich at 805-522-4605.
