6 WAYS TO SUPPORT STUDENTS
There are many ways to support OCA. Giving can be as simple as writing a check, making a gift in the form of securities, or requesting a matching gift from your employer. You may also choose to make OCA a beneficiary in your estate.
Consistent monthly or annual gifts to OCA are critical to sustaining the mission of the school — to educate students of light of Biblical Truth. Tuition and fees do not cover the annual cost of an OCA education plus many students could not afford to attend without financial aid. If not for the generous support of friends and family, we would cease to exist. Every gift is important and conveys a willingness to partner with us as we teach students to view the world through a Biblical lens.
For more information on making a gift, please contact John Parsons, Director of Operations at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cash gifts have an immediate impact on Omaha Christian Academy and offer you an income-tax charitable deduction. Please donate online or make checks payable to Omaha Christian Academy and mail to:

2) EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS
Many companies support education by matching or multiplying their employee’s gift to OCA. Often, this benefit is extended to employee spouses, retirees, and board members as well. Before you make a gift, please check to see if your company has a matching gift policy and help to increase your gift to OCA.
3) SECURITIES & IN-KIND GIFTS
Gifts of appreciated securities can provide you with an income-tax charitable deduction and a capital gains tax savings. You can make a gift of securities to OCA through electronic transfer. Notify your broker that you wish to make a gift and after authorizing the transfer, instruct your broker to contact our Business Manager. Our Business Manager will give your broker complete transfer instructions.
In-Kind Gifts are tangible gifts of personal property such as books and equipment. Personal property unrelated to our mission can be deducted at the cost to the donor.
4) PLANNED GIFTS
Planned Gifts are an effective and mutually beneficial way to support the mission of OCA. By making a planned gift, you are joining in partnership with us to ensure our ministry will continue to influence generations of students, while enjoying the benefits tax savings.
For more information on these types of gifts, please contact our Director of Operations at 402-399-9565.
