Smarter Ways to Give

Planned gifts offer you smart and creative ways to support Holland Christian Schools – often while benefiting your family, too. By understanding the available options, you can multiply the end results of your generosity in ways that are simple, flexible, cost-effective, and extraordinarily powerful.

Gifts in a Will

By including charitable giving in your will, you model to your loved ones a legacy of generosity. You also help ensure Holland Christian Schools continues to make a difference well beyond your lifetime.

Non-Cash Assets

You may be able to increase your potential impact –and experience significant tax benefits – by giving non-cash assets.

Examples of non-cash assets

  • Stock or marketable securities
  • Real estate
  • Business interests
  • Farm commodities
  • IRA charitable rollover (for donors ages 70 ½ and older)
  • Tangible personal property

Donor-Advised Fund

Donor-advised funds provide you with a simple, flexible, and tax-efficient giving opportunity. Receive an immediate tax deduction when you deposit cash or proceeds from appreciated assets into a single charitable giving account. Then, recommend grants be made to Holland Christian Schools and your other favorite charities at a time that works best for you.

Through Holland Christian Schools’ membership with Barnabas Foundation, you have complimentary access to the “Stewards Fund,” a donor-advised fund that reflects your biblical values.
