“You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.
The service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.”
~ 2 Corinthians 9:11 -12
Tuition and fees do not fully cover the costs to educate each student at CCA. Our average tuition rate is less than half of what it costs to educate a student in the public schools in Kansas.
In an effort to keep our tuition as affordable as possible to as many families as possible, CCA seeks to supplement our budget with both material donations (gifts-in-kind) and both designated and undesignated monetary gifts.
There are several ways for you to make a difference at CCA through generous donations of any amount!
General Gift Donations
This non-designated general fund allows the Academy the greatest flexibility to utilize funds where they are most needed. As we continue to partner with the Christian home and local church to equip students to reach their full academic, physical, and spiritual potential in Jesus Christ, gifts from supporters like you are and continue to be a blessing to our school and the families we serve.
Tuition Assistance – Scholarship Funding
Each school year, Central Christian Academy receives many requests for tuition assistance. Without this financial help, parents would be unable to send their children to CCA. Some are single parents; some have lost jobs or experienced other financial difficulties. Our desire is to never turn any qualified family away due to financial circumstances. The financial assistance process considers the family’s financial needs and also their faithfulness in giving to their local church or other ministries of their choosing.
Your generous donation will make a difference in the lives of our students – both now and for eternity.
Explore Program Scholarship Funding
The Explore program at CCA assists students with learning differences. Our goal is to help students who struggle in school become students who excel in school. God has created each child with unique characteristics. The academic language therapists and trained math instructors work with the classroom teachers to meet the educational needs of all Central Christian Academy students.
Other Opportunities to Support CCA
Gifts that Enhance Your Income
A Charitable Remainder Trust or Charitable Gift Annuity enables you to make a gift to CCA while receiving a guaranteed lifetime income for one or more persons. Your income could be two or three times greater than the income you were receiving before your gift. These agreements can be funded with cash or non-cash gifts.
Give It Twice
The fastest growing form of charitable giving is the Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). With DAF you make an initial gift of property or cash and you immediately receive a tax deduction for the full value of your gift. Your gift is held until you recommend distributions to charities at a future time(s). While it is held, the DAF account grows tax-free.
Appreciated Property Gifts
CCA can accept non-traditional gifts such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate and life insurance. By gifting these types of assets, you will avoid any applicable capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of your gift.
Will or Revocable Trust Bequests
One of the simplest ways to give is a bequest provision in your estate plan documents. Your bequest can be for a specific dollar amount, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder of your estate after you have provided for others. Estate gifts may be designated for an endowed excellence fund or for an immediate project need.
IRA or Pension Plan Gifts
Pension and IRA accounts are the most heavily taxed accounts you own. Your heirs will pay federal and state income tax as well as potential estate taxes on the account values. Naming Central Christian Academy as a beneficiary (or partial beneficiary) will avoid taxes.
Charitable Lead Trust
With a Charitable Lead Trust, you transfer assets to a trust that pays income to a charity for a specific number of years determined by you. At the end of this time period, the assets are transferred back to you or to others that you designate. Depending on the performance of the trust, future generations may receive more or less than the original amount deposited. The income tax effects of this tool are complex, and they vary based on the conditions of the trust.
