Giving

Ways to Give

You can support CCES in many ways. Unlike tuition payments, philanthropic gifts provide tax benefits to donors, either now or in the future. Your gifts may be restricted to a specific purpose, such as an endowment in support of faculty salaries, or unrestricted, such as contributions to Annual Giving.
 
CASH GIFTS
Cash gifts, which are tax-deductible, may be made by check or credit card, in person, through the mail, or online. Gifts of any amount may be made to The Cavalier Fund. Your participation counts.
 
MATCHING GIFTS
Matching gifts are available through many corporate programs.
 
NON-CASH GIFT OF SECURITIES
Non-cash gifts of securities, such as stock, or other assets, such as life insurance, annuities, and real estate, may be made through your broker or the CCES Development Office. Giving securities may allow you to make a larger gift without affecting your cash flow. You will also avoid capital gains tax on appreciated securities. Securities may be designated for Annual Giving, endowment, or capital gifts. Consult your financial advisor for information about the tax implications of a gift of securities or other assets, such as a charitable gift annuity, charitable remainder trust, or charitable lead trust. To learn more about gifts of stock, please contact Bibby Sierra at 864.331.4233 or sierrab@cces.org.
 
PLANNED GIVING
Planned gifts come in all shapes and sizes and can be bequests, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, charitable remainder trusts and retained life estates. These gifts offer many opportunities to you, your family, and CCES.
To explore planned gifts please contact Bibby Sierra, Director of Development, at 864.331.4233 or sierrab@cces.org.

THE CAVALIER HERITAGE SOCIETY
The Cavalier Heritage Society honors alumni, parents, and friends who have remembered CCES in their estate plans through charitable bequests, trusts, or other provisions. The establishment of the Cavalier Heritage Society allows Christ Church Episcopal School to extend privately its warm appreciation to individuals who inform the school of their thoughtful gift intentions.
If you have included CCES in your estate plans, please advise Bibby Sierra, Director of Development, at 864.331.4233 or sierrab@cces.org.

CAPITAL GIFTS
Capital gifts provide the foundation on which the school is built. In 1959, when several leaders at Christ Church stepped forward to envision a new Episcopal school in Greenville, they created CCES from the ground up not only with their hard work, but also with their generous capital gifts.

Capital campaigns at different times throughout the school’s history have enabled CCES to erect facilities that create a unique learning environment for our students. However, we need not be in “campaign mode” to entertain a capital gift. Donors with a vision for the future of the school are welcome at any time to propose a capital gift that will meet the school’s strategic needs. We are always excited to envision new possibilities for the future of CCES.
To discuss a potential capital gift, please contact Bibby Sierra, Director of Development, at 864.331.4233 or sierrab@cces.org.
A CCES education prepares students to think deeply, act responsibly, live vigorously, believe faithfully, lead resolutely, and create imaginatively.
