Appreciated Stock Gifts

Stocks (or securities) and mutual funds that have increased in value and been held for more than one year are popular assets to use when making a gift to Heritage Christian School. Making a gift of stock or mutual funds allows you to support our work while realizing important benefits for yourself.

When you donate appreciated stock or mutual funds you have held more than one year, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You are also entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of the transfer. When you donate stock to Heritage, you receive the same income tax savings that you would if you wrote us a check, but with the added benefit of eliminating capital gains taxes on the transfer, which can be as high as 20 percent.

Making a gift of stock to support Heritage is as easy as instructing your broker to transfer the shares. Contact the Heritage Development Office at development@heritagechristian.net for transfer instructions.

Matching Gifts

You may be able to double (or even triple!) your gift. More than 15,000 companies and subsidiaries have a program that matches gifts made to support education. Matching gifts are directed to the same designation as your original gift, unless your employer dictates otherwise. Heritage’s Development Department will recognize you for the total amount.

For questions about this or other aspects of matching gifts, please call Derek Todd, Development Manager at 317-849-3441 or derek.todd@heritagechristian.net.

To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, please contact your Human Resources Department. If your employer will match your gift, please request a matching gift form from your employer and submit your form, completed and signed, with your gift to the address below. You may also submit your claim online if your employer has an online matching gift claim form.

Planned Gifts/Bequests

Are you interested in helping Heritage Christian School but feel overwhelmed by the thought of writing another check or giving up your assets today? A simple, flexible and versatile way to ensure we can continue our work for years to come is a gift in your will or living trust, known as a charitable bequest.

A charitable bequest is one or two sentences in your will or living trust that leave to Heritage Christian School a specific item, an amount of money, a gift contingent upon certain events or a percentage of your estate.

By including a bequest to Heritage in your will or living trust, you are ensuring that we can continue our mission for years to come. Since your estate is eligible for an unlimited federal estate tax charitable deduction, your gift reduces the taxes due by your heirs.

Since a will is an important legal document, you should seek the help of an attorney and financial advisor. To begin your no-obligation conversation, contact Gary Roebbelen, Director of Development at gary.roebbelen@heritagechristian.net or 317-849-3441.

Life Insurance

A gift of life insurance is a unique way to give to Heritage. To qualify, Heritage needs to become owner and beneficiary. You may choose to donate a paid-up policy no longer needed, give a policy that is not fully paid-up and take a deduction for the present value of the policy, or make Heritage the owner and beneficiary of a new policy. Ongoing premium payments qualify as charitable deductions.

Real Estate

A gift of appreciated real estate is similar to a gift of appreciated stock. Any type of property you have owned for more than one year qualifies as a charitable contribution at its fair market value. The asset may be given outright, or may serve as the corpus of a trust arrangement, or in the case of a personal residence, may be given with the right of lifetime tenancy by the donor and/or spouse. An immediate charitable deduction is available to the donor, and the gift is not subject to capital gains taxes.
