Ways to Give
Thank you for considering a gift to Maranatha! There are a variety of ways to give and no single "best way" to contribute. Contributions are very personal decisions and can be structured to meet your individual circumstances.
Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD
your God which He has given you. Deuteronomy 16:17
Cash, Check and Credit Card Gifts
Gifts may be given by cash, checks, or credit cards. All checks are made payable to Maranatha High School. Maranatha now accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards through our secure online donation page. Please click here to donate now.
Direct Debit Gifts
Donors can make arrangements to have specified amount debited from their accounts monthly, quarterly, or annually. Please contact the Advancement Office to set up a direct debit recurring gift.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many corporations have matching gift programs for schools. Please inquire to see if your employer has a matching gift program. Matching gifts apply toward your overall gift total.
Appreciated Securities Gifts
Gifts of appreciated securities to Maranatha entitle donors to a charitable deduction for its full current market value offering a two-fold tax savings by also circumventing the tax due on the capital gain at the time of the gift. Stock certificates may be physically given to our Advancement office or stock may be transferred electronically through DTC for shares that are currently held at a bank or brokerage house. Instructions for transferring stock are located on our website for both physical delivery (HERE) and electronic DTC transfers (HERE).
In addition to the options described here, there are other ways to make a charitable gift that may work well for you. Deferred giving or planned giving further blesses Maranatha by including our school in an estate plan that includes bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable unitrusts, and life insurance. Please find the Bequest Commitment Form HERE.
We would be happy to meet with you to further discuss or explain giving opportunities. Thank you in advance for your generosity to Maranatha High School!
