Every Gift Makes a Difference         
 

At Cottage Hill Christian Academy, we view every gift as a major gift because every donation represents an individual or family who desires to partner with us in our mission of providing an outstanding Christian education to our famiiies.  Our vision is to become the Christian school in Mobile and we all the support we have received throughout the years from parents, alumni and friends.    

 

Legacy Fund Gifts

The CHCA WARRIOR LEGACY FUND will be launched in October of this year. The Legacy Fund will consist of unrestricted gifts which will help further the work of Cottage Hill Christian Academy. Legacy Fund monies will help bridge the gap between tuition and the cost of educating our students. Below is a list of some of the areas we will be targeting during this campaign. Please consider partnering with us as we work to further God's Kingdgom through the work of Cottage Hill Christian Academy.

• Improve our technology offerings
• Improve our plant facilities at both the upper and lower school
• Improve science labs
• Improve our transportation


Restricted Gifts

These are given for a particular need. Whether it be for new teaching tools or for capitol improvements, Restricted gifts are encouraged at Cottage Hill. Let us know how you would like to make a directed gift and we will be happy to work with you.

 

WAYS TO GIVE

Cash

Cash donations by check are the most common way to give. The Development Office provides Acknowledgments to meet IRS requirements for all contributions.


Securities

Increasing numbers of parents, alumni, and friends are making gifts to Cottage Hill Christian Academy using appreciated securities such as stocks and mutual funds. The attraction of this method of giving is that the donor is entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full current value of appreciated securities held longer that one year and is able to avoid paying capital gains tax that would be due if the donor sold the securities. For information on transferring securities, please contact the Development Office at (251)634-2513.

Bequests

More and more friends of Cottage Hill Christian Academy are designating bequests to our school, allowing us to recognize their extraordinary commitment during their lifetime.

Unique Gift Vehicles

Commemorative Gifts

You may want to honor a friend with a special gift on a birthday or during a special time of year, or perhaps you may want to give a gift in memory of a loved one. If so, a commemorative gift is your answer. Commemorative Gift donation notes are available at the Academy; we will notify those honored by these gifts. In the case of memorial gifts, a family member you choose to designate will be notified.

Tree of Honor

The Tree of Honor at the Academy represents gifts of all kinds valued at $1,000.00 or more for capital improvements. Each leaf acknowledges, by name, the honoree. Call us for more information.
