Support EC

Planned Giving

Eastern Christian School has established The 1892 Society to recognize and thank those who value EC enough to make a planned gift and help to assure that the mission of Eastern Christian School will continue into the future.

Eastern Christian School is not the same school it was 100 years ago, or even 10 years ago.  It is a better school!   The Board of Directors and the Administration have demonstrated a tenacious commitment to honor the mission of providing excellence while holding fast to the foundation of a Christian worldview.  But just as it did 124 years ago, providing excellence requires sacrifice and commitment.

The Christian community has demonstrated an amazing commitment in its support for Eastern Christian School.  Planned giving is a way to continue that commitment.  Planned giving has been the major contributor to the Endowment Fund which provides significant support to Eastern Christian School each year.  In many cases, planned giving also allows an individual to leave the most significant gift of their lifetime.

I am boldly asking that you consider making a planned gift by naming Eastern Christian School in your estate.  Your planned gift will ensure that Eastern Christian School will continue to engage minds, nurture spirits, and transform the world in the service of God’s kingdom for generations to come.


Creating Your Legacy

Did you know:

  • A bequest in a will or living trust is a common planned gift for Eastern Christian supporters.
  • You can name EC as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy.
  • Naming EC as a beneficiary of your retirement account (IRA, 401K, etc.) provides a gift without tax allowing you to leave other non-taxable assets to your heirs.
  • A Charitable Gift Annuity (CGA) will provide an immediate income tax deduction while providing income for life to the donor(s).
  • When you gift real estate in a Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT) you avoid capital gains taxes and receive income for the rest of your life.

Working with our partner, Barnabas
Foundation, we can help you explore 

these and other options.

Leave a Legacy

More than half of American adults do not have a will or estate plan.  Aside from the complications this can cause, it means they have yet to think about the legacy they will leave for the next generation.

If you or a member of your family has been blessed by an EC education, would you please consider including Eastern Christian School in your estate plan?

A gift in your will or trust, known as a bequest, is a way to make a bigger impact than you ever thought possible without immediately sacrificing any assets.

The Foundation for ECSA is here to help.
