No financial vehicle can match the power and impact of an endowment. An endowment exists in perpetuity because the principal investment is not spent but rather carefully managed to yield a reliable stream of earnings. Your gift to the endowment is building our legacy.
Many employers will match your charitable giving, doubling the impact of your gift! If your company has a matching gift program, obtain the matching gift form from your employer and enclose it along with your gift. Click Here for a partial listing of participating matching gift companies. If your company is not included on this list, check with your employer to see if they have a matching gift program.
Gifts-In-Kind are contributions of goods or services, other than cash. If you have a good or service that you would like to donate to JCS, first contact the Development Office to verify the use and benefit to the school.
Real Estate: In the next 3-5 year, Jupiter Christian School seeks to secure new property to grow our academic programs, facilitate excellence in education, enhance our athletics field and arts space, and grow the impact of the JCS mission in Palm Beach County. If it is of interest, JCS is able to accept all types of property gifts including raw land as well as residential and commercial real estate. Please contact Chelsea Gunn (email@example.com) if you are interested in contributing to our Capital development plans!
Appreciated Assets: Gifts of appreciated stocks, securities, bonds, or mutual fund shares may provide tax benefits and allow you to avoid capital gains. Instead of selling and then donating the proceeds, you may want to consider giving the asset directly to JCS. Please consult with your financial planner and notify Sarah Cohen (email or call 561.354.1945) that you intend to donate securities prior to initiating the transfer.
Those who have reached 70.5 years of age are permitted to make tac free ‘qualified charitable donations’ up to $100,000.00 from an IRA to Jupiter Christian School. This option may satisfy the required minimum distribution and realize a tax savings! Rules and conditions may apply—please check with your tax advisor for further details.
Planned giving is a type of charitable giving that allows you to express your personal values by integrating your charitable, family and financial goals. Making a planned charitable gift usually requires the assistance of the charity's development professional and/or a knowledgeable advisor such as an attorney, financial planner or CPA to help structure the gift.
Planned gifts can be made with cash, but many planned gifts are made by donating assets such as stocks, real estate, art pieces or business interests – the possibilities are endless. Planned gifts can provide valuable tax benefits and/or lifetime income for you and your spouse or other loved ones. The most frequently made planned gifts are bequests to charities made through your will. Other popular planned gifts include charitable trusts and charitable gift annuities. Thus, by definition, a planned gift is any major gift made in a lifetime or at death as part of a donor's overall financial and/or estate planning.
Many foundations and corporations have partnered with Liberty in providing resources to support student success. If you are part of an organization or foundation that is interested in supporting education, please contact JCS's Development Team.
