Can you think of a better return on investment than knowing that you can make an immediate and lasting impact on the lives of children? Giving of one's time, talent and treasure at Eden Christian Academy provides a biblically based educational experience for today's students, who are becoming tomorrow's leaders. Please prayerfully consider how you may best support Eden students and faculty. We would be happy to talk with you about such opportunities.
Check or Credit Card – Giving cash is the most popular form of gifting due to its simplicity. 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.
Educational Improvement and Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit Programs – A decision to direct corporate Pennsylvania tax dollars to Eden will provide children an opportunity for a positive school experience and a choice in their education. Many companies are designating their state tax liability to provide tuition aid through these programs at no cost to their businesses. Please consider joining them to open the doors of affordability for more low and middle income families to choose Eden. CLICK HERE for more information
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.
Buy-A-Brick - Be a lasting part of Eden's future by purchasing an engraved brick for the walkway of the Berkeley Hills Campus.
Easy Ways To Help - Things you do every day can help benefit ECA. Check out the list of partner programs to see how you can help.
Personal Property – A contribution of real estate, valuable collections, or other asset that Eden 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 Eden's charitable purposes, such as books, educational equipment, construction materials or similar resources, can be fully tax deductible at fair-market value. Please contact the administrative office so we can match your in-kind gift with Eden's most pressing needs.
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 Eden.
Gifts Generating Income to You – If you desire to make a gift to Eden and receive a guaranteed fixed income for life, a charitable gift annuity is an ideal planning option. Under the professional administration and backing through Eden's affiliation with the Pittsburgh Foundation, we can help design a plan with current and long-term benefits for both you and the academy.
Deferred or Planned Gifts – Through a will, trust or life insurance policy, you may name Eden Christian Academy 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 Eden 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 us at 412-364-8055 to see what best advances your interests and the mission of Eden Christian Academy.
