The annual fund is an essential part of the success of Dayspring Christian Academy. With annual gifts of support of our classrooms, teachers, and students we can ensure that students receive a biblical, classical education.
Any gift can make a difference in the education of a child, such as:
In 2001, The Pennsylvania legislature passed legislation, called the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC). In 2012, they approved the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit (OSTC). Opportunities exist for businesses to receive tax credits through these programs and Dayspring is an approved EITC/OSTC scholarship organization and participating school. Contact Dayspring to learn more about how your business can support our school through these programs.More EITC/OSTC Information
A giving circle is where donors pool their gifts to make a bigger impact than just one gift could have. Giving circles offer an innovative approach to fundraising for specific programs and projects that are typically unbudgeted items. Join today and help make a direct impact in the classrooms of Dayspring Christian Academy.Learn more
Dayspring Christian Academy holds premier events in Lancaster County that share our mission and educate the community. More than 13,000 people have attended one of our outreach events in the past six years. Many corporate sponsorship opportunities exist for local businesses to advertise and market their companies as Dayspring reaches a wide audience through these events and programs. We would be very pleased to talk with you about how we can advertise your business and reach a captive audience.
If you would like to walk with us in raising up the next generation, please email Joanne Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school at 717-285-2000.
We invite you to consider a deferred gift such as a last will and testament, gift annuity, a charitable trust, or a life insurance policy. A legacy gift demonstrates a special commitment to the future of Dayspring and our future students. Deferred, or planned, gifts strengthen Dayspring Christian Academy’s capacity and lessens its dependence on annual giving. Have you been looking for a place to give a lasting gift? Visit our Planned Giving page or contact the Development Office to learn more about how you can enrich the lives of future students at Dayspring. You can also call the school at 717.285.2000.How to Leave a Legacy
Marketable securities and mutual funds are the most common assets contributed to nonprofits in today’s day. When these assets have appreciated (have been owned by the donor for more than one year and have since increased in value), donors can maximize their charitable donation and, in most cases, enjoy significant tax benefits.
Some companies offer to match gifts you make to a charitable organization. By completing your company’s application and informing Dayspring Christian Academy of this match, you can significantly increase, and sometimes double or triple, your gift. Inform the Dayspring Christian Academy Development Office about your company match!
Do you have an item that might benefit Dayspring Christian Academy? Crayons, new office supplies, lightly used bookshelves, and more can benefit Dayspring Christian Academy. These and other in-kind gifts can be effective ways to support Dayspring students. Please check with our Development Office to see how an idea you have for a gift can be most useful and appropriate.
