Charitable Gift Annuity
In exchange for a transfer of cash, marketable securities, or in some circumstances real estate, WCA is contractually guaranteed to make a specified annuity payment to the donor throughout his/her lifetime. The payout rates vary by age and number of participants. In addition to lifetime income, you may claim a current-year deduction for a portion of the gift, and a portion of the annuity payment is income-tax free for several years.
Checks & Cash
Please make checks payable to WCA and mail to Attention: Advancement Department at 873 South Hanover Street, Pottstown, PA 19465

You or your business may have a product or service that could be donated to West-Mont Christian Academy to benefit the daily operation of the school, or for an event; Call Christie Werkheiser, Director of Advancement at 610-326-7690, for current opportunities.
Life insurance plays an important role in providing financial protection against emergencies, asset protection for estate planning, and security for families with children. As family situations and needs change, however, the need for life insurance also may change. Please have your policy evaluated and consider including WCA as a beneficiary.
Many corporations have a matching gift program that encourages employees to think philanthropically by doubling their contribution. Matching gifts can potentially double or triple a donation. The impact is tremendous for West-Mont. Check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer has a matching gift program and to obtain a matching gift form. Read more here or Contact Christie Werkheiser, Director of Advancement at 610-326-7690 to discuss this option further.
You can give a building, vacation property or land as a significant gift to WCA. A taxable property that has long-term appreciation in value can be given without incurring tax on the appreciation. Thus, the value of the gift may be substantially more than it would be if the property were first sold and the after-tax donation made to West-Mont.
This is a very manageable way to give and avoid capital gains on your investment. Bonds, stocks, and mutual funds are easy to donate to WCA and have several advantages for the donor: you receive a full charitable deduction for the fair market value of the gift; you avoid long-term capital gain tax, and there is no commission in the sale or transfer. WCA has a brokerage account for easy transfer. To find out more about gifts of stocks and securities and for transfer instructions email Christie Werkheiser, Director of Advancement or by phone at 610-326-7690.
