Share in the Mission of CHA
How Can I Support CHA?
Prayer, volunteering, and financial gifts, all support the mission and vision of Christian Heritage Academy and advance the kingdom of God. We thank God for the partnership of so many. Your generous giving makes a difference, now and for eternity! Here are several ways you can help:
Pray with us, and for us!
We greatly appreciate your and your family’s continued prayers for CHA. In addition, each year, CHA has Classroom Prayer Coordinators from Preschool to the Upper School. There are weekly Friday morning prayer time with Dads and Dr. Roth Fridays at 6:30 am, to monthly and corporate times of prayer throughout the school year. Please contact our Prayer Coordinator to get plugged in!
Volunteering – a great way to get connected!
Our Parent Volunteer Organization (PVO) seeks to support CHA by encouraging parents to offer their time and talents throughout many areas of school life. Parent involvement injects a special vibrancy into school life that we cherish, and parents typically find that their volunteer service enriches their own, and their children’s, CHA experience as well.
We hope you will find a place to jump in! There are a wide variety of opportunities for parents to participate in school life – and it’s a great way to meet other parents, interact with and get to know students, and become involved, from supporting roles to leadership opportunities, from “one-off” tasks, to filling a spot in a rotating service schedule, to longer-term commitments. Just a few of the many areas of opportunity include: helping teachers with classroom projects and activities; chaperoning a field trip, serving as a room parent, serving on a committee or commission, helping with hospitality at an event, serving as sports team coach or in booster activities, supporting the fine arts department (theater productions, concerts, art displays, etc.), and so much more. Look here for more information about serving at CHA.

Estate Gifts – Leaving a Legacy
You may want to consider leaving a lasting legacy to Christian Heritage Academy through your will, trust or life insurance policies. You can also make a meaningful future gift to Christian Heritage Academy while generating income, immediate tax savings and other benefits today.
Gifts from Retirement Accounts
Retirement plan assets can be a practical source from which to make gifts. Many tax advisors suggest using these funds to make charitable gifts because amounts withdrawn from retirement accounts can be taxable to you and eventually to your heirs if left to them. Giving in this way may result in little or no tax impact when you report the amount withdrawn along with an offsetting charitable deduction.
Giving securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) that are worth more than they cost can bring additional tax savings. Such gifts are generally deductible for income tax purposes at their full current value if they have been owned for longer than one year. We use Edward Jones to process these transactions. Please contact CHA’s Chief Financial Officer, Ted Magrum, (847) 881-1317, for further details.
