Family, friends, and alumni of The Woodlands Christian Academy are invited to share in the joy and richness of God's blessings by leaving a lasting legacy for years to come. Legacy Bricks will provide you an opportunity to create a personal inscription to honor a student, your family, or a loved one. These wonderful mementos are available on a first come, first served basis and will be placed randomly on the brick walls at the front and rear entrances of our main building. Legacy Bricks will touch and encourage all who enter our campus for years to come with messages of inspiration and blessing.
An endowment is a permanent trust account. The endowment principal earns investment income to benefit the school. A robust endowment is an essential component of every successful private independent school. The perpetual earning generated by endowment funds will play a critical role in shaping the future of Woodlands Christian. A percentage of the annual return on general endowments can be directed to the area with the most pressing needs or provide the school with a steady flow of income in support of a variety of designated programs such as for financial aid, faculty salaries, fine arts and others. At this time, Woodlands Christian has one endowment valued at $100,000; all revenues generated by it support minority scholarships. We look forward to working with families and friends to significantly build these valuable resources for Woodlands Christian.
If you would like to provide an endowment, please contact, Kellie Armstrong, Director of Development at 936-273-2555 x 1010 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Woodlands Christian accepts donations of securities at any dollar value. Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help the school while realizing many important benefits yourself. It is very important that you or your financial advisor contact The Development Office in advance of the gift to ensure proper documentation and receipting.
Savings bonds represent major assets that may have stopped growing and are now collecting dust, just waiting to be put to use. As the stock market has fluctuated, bonds have grown popular because of their security and steady return. Redeeming bonds can complicate your tax situation. Giving them as a charitable gift in your will may be a smart way to support a cause you believe in and relieve some of the tax burden on your estate.
Bequests are one of the most popular and simplest ways to make a gift. We hope you’ll tell us when you have named The Woodlands Christian Academy in your will. We would very much like the opportunity to thank you for your generosity.
The official legal bequest language for The Woodlands Christian Academy is: “I, [name], of [city, state, ZIP], give, devise and bequeath to The Woodlands Christian Academy in The Woodlands, Texas whose location on the date of the drafting of this will is 5800 Academy Way, The Woodlands, TX 77384, [written amount or percentage of the estate or description of property] for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
If you are like many Americans, your financial future will likely revolve around your retirement plan assets. Once you’ve provided for your family, you have another option: a gift to The Woodlands Christian Academy. There’s no better testimonial to your heartfelt concern for our ongoing efforts to serve others.
If your employer offers a matching gift program you may be able to double or even triple your donation to Woodlands Christian. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to eligible charitable organizations. Please contact your employer’s personnel office for eligibility requirements and to obtain a matching gift form. Next, complete the form and provide it to Woodlands Christian Development Office with your contribution. Our office will coordinate the remaining steps with your employer.
