Gifts through one’s will or through estate planning may create an opportunity to avoid estate or gift tax, or to offset income tax.
Donors may arrange for gifts to be made by businesses. In addition, many companies have established matching gifts programs to match or multiply donations made by active or retired employees and directors. Consult your company’s human resources department for information on their matching gifts program.
Corporate Matching Gifts
The value of your gift could double, perhaps even triple, in size if your current employer, or the current employer of your spouse, offers a matching gifts program. Businesses, companies, and corporations often match contributions to qualified non-profit organizations, e.g., Nicaea Academy. Remember, many companies continue to match retiree’s gifts, too. As you consider your own support for Nicaea Academy, please contact your human resources department or visit your company’s Web site for details. For a nation-wide resource, visit www.matchinggifts.com. If your gift qualifies, please obtain a matching gift form from your employer and send the completed form to the School Office with your donation.
A non-cash gift, also called gifts in-kind, are gifts of personal property and are accepted by Nicaea Academy if they can be put to good use, if they serve a worthwhile purpose in the life of our school, or if they provide clear benefits to our school. As Nicaea Academy is a non-profit organization, all gifts in-kind are tax deductible. We will ask you for detailed information regarding the gift. These details will then be used for tax purposes.
In Memory or In Honor of a Loved One
A donation in recognition of a friend or family member is a thoughtful contribution, and an appropriate way to recognize someone’s life and accomplishments.
Donations to Nicaea Academy can be made over a period of up to three years through pledges. Donors are welcome to make payments in quarterly, semi-annual or annual installments, or by any other payment schedule desired.
Stock Transfers or Real Estate
Gifts of capital gains property, such as real estate or securities are welcome. This type of donation may be advantageous from a tax standpoint. Consult your accountant or attorney to determine your particular situation.
