Lee Academy offers several different options for giving. We are so appreciative of your generous gift, and we want to making giving simple and beneficial for you. Explore all of the opportunities we’ve created below.
- Cash Gifts
As part of the yearly Annual Fund Drive are an important way to give to Lee Academy. Cash gifts are fully tax deductible and can be sent at any time to the Lee Academy Advancement Office. Each year, the Annual Fund Drive begins with a request mailing which explains the program options for annual support. This, as well as subsequent reminder mailings, includes a postage paid envelope. Gifts may also be charged to your Mastercard or VISA, simply by designating on the return envelope.
A bequest is a gift of either money or property made to the school through the wishes of the donor as expressed in a will. Bequests are easily established as part of your estate planning process. Please consider this as a way to make an enduring contribution to young people and your school.
Lee Academy accepts gifts-in-kind. The fair market value of such goods and services is fully tax deductible, as well. A formal appraisal is required by the IRS for such gifts over $5,000. Please contact the Advancement office for further information.
- Matching Gifts
Many companies have programs which match, often dollar-for-dollar, the charitable donations given by their employees. To utilize this benefit, obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office and send it to Lee Academy, along with your gift.
- Capital Campaigns
From time to time we come to you to ask for your financial support for specific, major projects at critical moments in the school’s history. Plans are now in the early stages for the first comprehensive capital campaign in half a century.
Trustees, staff, and others will meet to initiate a strategic plan and campaign to support the natural evolution of Lee Academy as we recommit ourselves to the school’s mission and to the time-honored Lee Academy goals of academic and personal growth. The forthcoming plan will enable us to fully prepare students for the changing world around us.
