Planned Giving and Endowment

Planned Gifts


What are planned gifts?

Planned giving, or gift planning, is a method of supporting CCS that enables donors to make larger gifts from their estate than they could otherwise normally make from their income alone. While some planned gifts provide a life-long income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning techniques to provide for CCS in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor. Whether a donor uses cash, appreciated securities/stock, real estate, artwork, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, etc., the benefits of funding a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both the donor and CCS.

What are our endowment funds?

Endowment funds are gifts that keep giving. The funds are invested by CCS and the proceeds generated by the investment are used to support CCS’s teachers, curriculum and students. The school recently partnered with the National Christian Foundation and formed the CCS Foundation for the purpose of receiving and investing endowment funds for the long term growth of CCS. Please consider establishing a named family or individual endowment.
