Ways to Give
Holy Cross Academy offer donors many ways to give. We encourage donors to consider the various ways to give that best suit their financial circumstances.
A direct gift to our Annual Fund provides tax savings for the donor and can be used by Holy Cross Academy immediately. Please make checks payable to Holy Cross Academy. Send donations to: Holy Cross Academy, Office of Advancement, 4020 Barrington Rd, Oneida, NY, 13241.
Gifts of Security:
Gifts of appreciated stock and securities support Holy Cross Academy while providing potential tax deductions and capital gains tax reductions for the donor. Please contact Holy Cross Academy to learn more about transferring securities.
Many employers will match a charitable donation to a non–profit organization. A matching gift can double, even triple the value of your donation. Ask your employer if it has a matching grant program for its employees and/or retirees.
Gifts of art, antiques, manuscripts, and other tangible property (non–cash) can be used to support the Academy for educational purposes.
Do you wish to remember Holy Cross Academy in your will? The bequest can be specified as a fixed amount, a percentage of your estate, the residual, or as a specific item(s).
Retirement Plans and Life Insurance:
Donors can designate Holy Cross Academy as a beneficiary in their retirement plans and life insurance policies.
Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Trusts:
Charitable gift annuities are an increasingly popular form of gift which allows an individual to retain income from lifetime assets given, while the principal goes to charity. This is a wonderful way for a donor to gain an annual income and generate a tax–deductible gift for Holy Cross Academy
Please seek the advice of your tax advisor, attorney, and/or financial planner to determine the financial benefits of making a Planned Gift to HCA.
