WAYS OF GIVING

The Sunnyide Christian School Foundation will accept gifts in many forms.
Many of the gift 
options listed below provide potential income and/or estate
tax benefits to
the donor.  Please consult your tax advisor to determine the
tax implications of your gift to the Sunnyside Christian School Foundation.

  • Cash - A very simple way to give.  You can give a one-time gift, schedule a gift of monthly payments, or make a pledge to give a yearly gift to the SCS Foundation.
     
  • Commodities - God often blesses us with non-monetary gifts that can be used for kingdom service.  The SCS Foundation is willing to accept almost any type of commodity.  
     
  • Contracts/Note Receivables - Contracts of various forms often have an impact on one's income and subsequently, tax liabilities.  The SCS Foundation can accept these as a charity donation, which will benefit the SCS Foundation as well as the donor.
     
  • Life Insurance Policies - Receive a deduction on the computed current value of your paid-up policy or premium payments.  Name the SCS Foundation as a beneficiary in a new or current policy and provide a substantial gift through small premium payments.  Consider the SCS Foundaiton before discontinuing a life insurance policy.
     
     
  • Marketable Securities - Such as stocks, bonds, or mutual funds.  Receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of your gift and avoid paying tax on any capital gains.
     
  • Memorials - Make a gift to the SCS Foundation in memory of a loved one.
     
  • Real Estate - Receive a deduction for the appraised market value and avoid paying tax on your capital gains.
     
  • Retirement Accounts - Maxamize the value of your gift by avoiding income and estate taxes.  Donate your required minimum distribution to the SCS Foundation tax free.  A donation counts as your required minimum distribution, but does not increase your adjusted gross income.
