Warrior Legacy Fund

Cottage Hill Christian Academy recently welcomed its largest opening day enrollment in school history. Our school verse is Jeremiah 29:11 and our school leadership has been actively praying for God's guidance as we pursue His plan for CHCA. We know God has a plan for Cottage Hill Christian Academy to prosper; He has given us a great hope and a bright future. As part of our discipleship journey to fulfill that plan we are in year three of the "Warrior Legacy Fund." The monies raised through this fund help us fulfill our VISION of becoming the choice for a Christ centered education in Mobile.

Please join us in prayer for CHCA and if God leads, help us leave a Legacy for your student and for those who will follow after. We are grateful to those who have sacrificially given throughout the years to help start, maintain, and improve Cottage Hill Christian Academy. Deuteronomy 3:1 tells us that there is a "season for everything and a time under heaven for every event," and we feel NOW IS THE TIME for Cottage Hill Christian Academy to move forward.

Our main goal for the "Warrior Legacy Fund" is participation by all stakeholders - school committee members, faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends of the Warrior family. As we strive to be all that God desires for us academically, spiritually, athletically, and artistically, we are trusting in God's Plan, Our Faith, and Your Commitment to help secure the Legacy of Cottage Hill Christian Academy.

All gifts will be tax deductible and monies raised through this fund will help:

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

All who give will receive a CHCA Warrior Legacy Fund sticker for their car and your name will be listed in the Annual Report.

Gifts of $1,000 or more will secure you a leaf on the Tree of Honor.
Gifts of $5,000 or more will secure you a root on the Tree of Honor.
Tree of Honor is located in the front lobby of the West Campus.

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.
