Ways to Give

Thank you for considering a tax-deductible investment in the present and future a Mount Pisgah Christian School.

 

All gifts make an important and lasting difference in the lives of our students and faculty. There are many ways to make a contribution - our goal is to help you find the right one for you and your family.

Please contact the Advancement Office at 678-336-3371 if you have any questions.

Gifts of cash are the most direct and popular type of charitable gift. They are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes to the extent provided by law. Checks (please provide your name and class year for alumni) should be made payable to Mount Pisgah Christian School and sent directly to:

Office of Advancement

Mount Pisgah Christian School

9820 Nesbit Ferry Road

Johns Creek, GA 30022

Donors may prefer to pay by credit card to take advantage of various credit card promotions, such as frequent flyer miles and other reward programs. We accept American Express, MasterCard, Discover, and Visa. Transactions can be made online here or by calling the Advancement Office at 678-336-3371.

Many employers offer matching gift programs that match a portion of charitable gifts made by

employees, retirees and family members to educational institutions. These matches provide additional support to Mount Pisgah, at no cost to you. Each company has their own process for applying for and receiving the match. CLICK HERE to learn if your employer offers a matching gift program. In some cases, there are time restrictions and the process must be initiated shortly after the gift has been made. You may also contact Mike Poline with questions at 678-336-3381 or mpoline@mountpisgahschool.org.

Gift commitments (pledges) which are documented in writing and payable by an agreed upon and specified date are accepted and appreciated. Many donors also find it convenient to set up an automatic recurring gift using the online giving tool. A pledge does not provide the donor with an income tax deduction until the year in which it is paid. Pledge payments may be made by cash or check submitted directly to the advancement office or by making credit card payments ONLINE.

Gifts of tangible personal property (capital assets) that are in good condition, may be given to Mount Pisgah for its educational purposes or for sale, or may be sold by the donor for the immediate benefit of the School. Gifts-in-kind must be approved in advance through the advancement office. Responsibility for appraisal rests with the donor.

A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year is frequently the most tax-wise way to give securities. See below for stock transfer instructions.

GIFT PLANNING

 

Charitable donations can be an important part of your estate planning. Bequests, gift annuities, and charitable trusts are vehicles through which you can provide valuable financial support to Mount Pisgah Christian School. They also can provide significant financial benefit for you and your loved ones. The information on this website is not intended as legal or tax advice. For such advice, please consult an attorney or tax advisor.

You may make a gift to Mount Pisgah by designating the school as a beneficiary in your will. Bequests permit donors to commit assets after their lifetime while retaining the property during their lives. Bequests can be made for a specified amount or as a percentage of the estate. Bequests can be unrestricted or used to establish operating or endowed funds to accomplish specific goals. Bequests of any size will help secure the strength of the school for future generations.

Under a gift annuity agreement, you make a gift to Mount Pisgah in return for the school's promise to make an annual payment to you of a specific dollar amount for as long as you live. The amount of the annual payment depends on your age, and is based on a fixed percentage of the initial fair market value of your gifts. A portion of your gift is tax-deductible.

A charitable remainder trust may be designed to provide you with income throughout your lifetime as well as support Mount Pisgah upon your death. The trust may be established with a gift of cash or appreciated stock.

Your residence, condominium, vacation home, timeshare, or acreage may have appreciated in value through the years so that its sale would mean a sizable capital gains tax. By making a gift of property to Mount Pisgah, you would avoid the capital gains tax and receive a charitable tax deduction for the full market value of the property.

 

Please contact Melissa Santee in the Advancement Office if you are interested in discussing capital giving options.
