Many corporations recognize and are willing to support private education through a matching gift program. Your employer can advise you if your company will match your gift. Please check with your company to see if your donations to the school are eligible for the company matching program.
Planned gifts such as bequests, trusts, life insurance, and assignment of a beneficial interest, endowments, life estates, or real property are another avenue of contribution.
Memorial and Honorarium gifts offer an opportunity to honor a relative, friend, or a business associate. During a bereavement period, friends often see this as an appropriate means to express sympathy. The following message in the obituary of the deceased provides an avenue to make a meaningful and thoughtful gift: “Memorial gifts may be made to East Lake Academy, 13911 Laurel Drive Lake Forest, IL 60045.”
Gifts are processed online through a secure transaction gateway directly to East Lake Academy’s bank account. Your credit card information is handled through an SSL web form utilizing the highest possible encryption standards for credit card transactions.
