Company Matching Gifts
Your employer may be one of the more than 1,000 companies that have matching gift programs. Matching gifts can often double your personal contribution. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, contact the human resources or personnel department at your company. When you make a donation to ACA, complete the form your employer will provide and enclose it with your gift. Click here to see a partial list of companies with matching gift programs.
Cash, Designated Gifts and Pledges
ACA willingly receives gifts in cash, check, or ACH withdrawal at any time. All gifts which are not designated to a particular fund, campaign, or special project are used for regular operating expenses. Gifts designated to an established fund, campaign, or special project are used as the donor has designated. Many donors find it easier to pledge a gift in several installments. This provides a way to give a larger gift than you might otherwise be able to give with a single cash gift. To give monthly, quarterly or any other schedule, please indicate your wish on a pledge form.
Give in memory of a loved one and request their name be added to our memorial plaque located in our main entrance lobby.
Gifts of Stock
You may find it more convenient and financially advantageous to make a gift of appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes. For additional information, please contact your broker, tax accountant, or financial advisor.
Gifts from Estate Plans
ACA would be grateful if you would also consider a gift to the school through a bequest in your will, trust or life insurance. Please contact your financial advisor regarding how estate planning benefits can be maximized for your continued enjoyment today as well as continuing blessings for this ministry in years to come.
ALL gifts of cash, stock, or property may be designated to:
