Ways to Support PCS
PCS desires to fulfill its mission for many future generations. You can play both a tangible and intangible part in that success. God has bestowed on each of us talents that can be used for His glory. Whether you share gifts of time, talent, or resources translating into volunteer service, faithful prayer, or financial support, we cherish your partnership in our mission. PCS’s operating revenue derives from two sources: tuition income and gifts. PCS relies solely on, and is deeply grateful for, the generosity of private individuals, foundations, institutions, and businesses for our support.
Staying Connected via PCS’s Quarterly Newsletter
If you would like to stay updated on what is happening in the life of our school, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our newsletter email list.
We know our God hears every prayer and we covet yours as our school continues to serve our families and community and strives to bring glory to God.
Matching gifts can increase your gift and many employers match gifts made to non-profits by their employees, employee’s spouses, directors, and retirees. Please contact your Human Resources Department to learn if your employer will match your gift.
You can support PCS through your will or estate plan. These deferred gifts can reap significant future tax benefits, which allows more of your assets to pass to those for whom you wish to provide support.
Gifts of Securities and Insurance Policies
A transfer of appreciated securities that have been held for more than one year is often the most tax advantageous donation. With this gift, you will be eligible for a federal income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income while avoiding capital gains taxes. The same tax eligibility and treatment also applies to gifts of irrevocable insurance policies.
IRA Charitable Rollover
Retirees aged 70 ½ and older may give up to $100,000 annually from an IRA tax-free to a charitable organization, such as PCS.
In-kind gifts are donations of tangible items that supply PCS with much needed materials, such as art, athletic equipment, musical instruments, and other school supplies.
For more information on any of these options or other assets, please call the Development Office at (757)565-2900 ext. 325.
