Other Ways to Give

Giving a gift to Tree of Life “in honor of” or “in memory of” an individual is an important way to acknowledge a special person in your life and bless our school at the same time. This gift of distinction may memorialize a loved one, celebrate a special event, acknowledge accomplishments, honor a teacher or administrator, celebrate special milestones of life such as graduation, etc. *All Honorary Gifts benefit the Lezlee Knowles Fund unless otherwise noted.

Planned giving, such as retirement assets, charitable remainder trusts, annuities, insurance policies, and bequests, benefits the school beyond a person’s lifetime. There are special tax provisions for giving from an IRA directly to a charity. If you desire to redirect an asset that might otherwise be taxed heavily or incur capital gains, please consult an attorney or other professional adviser.

Endowment gifts provide perpetual benefits for Tree of Life students of today and tomorrow. Tree of Life’s greatest and best hope for a financially secure future is an adequate, unrestricted endowment, invested and managed for growth. Endowment gifts help provide financial longevity in support of students, faculty, staff, and programs.

Take advantage of a tax deduction for the entire fair market value of the stock, bond, or mutual fund by donating the investment directly to the school.

Many companies encourage charitable giving of their employees by offering a matching gift program. This is a wonderful way to double your contribution. Tree of Life is an eligible educational institution that receives matching funds from various companies. Contact your HR or Benefits department to see if your employer participates in a matching gift program. Please be sure to inform the school of your and your employer’s participation.

For more information or to donate to any of these specific Impact programs, please contact our Advancement Office.
