As a non-profit Christian educational ministry, Highland Christian Academy (HCA) seeks and accepts gifts as part of its financial strategy in pursuit of its mission. Since much of what God has accomplished at HCA has been financed through gifts, both large and small, it is appropriate that the Highland Christian Academy Theology of Giving be shared publicly.

 

What is a Theology of Giving?

HCA’s Theology of Giving is a simple statement that clarifies for our donors what we believe and how we act about giving. Our theology of giving answers two questions: 


1.  What has God told us He believes about giving? 
2.  What are the implications of these beliefs and actions for the relationship between Highland and its donors?

 

What has God told us He believes about giving?


• God owns everything. Psalm 24: 1 “The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it….” 
• God needs nothing from us. Psalm 50:9-10 “I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills.” 
• Our use of money is the surest indicator of what we deem important. Luke 12: 34 “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” 
• God meets our needs in response to our giving. Phil. 4:19 “…my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” 
• Giving someone the opportunity to give to the Lord’s work is giving him an opportunity to be blessed of God. Phil. 4: 17 “Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be credited to your account.” 
• God has blessed His people with joy in giving. Thus Highland Christian Academy does a service to others when it makes its needs known. II Cor. 2-5 “Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will.” 
• God expects us to be good stewards of the gifts of His people. II Cor. 20 – 21 “We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.”

 

What are the implications of these beliefs about giving?


• We base our budget not on what we have on hand, but on what God has called us to do. 
• In offering people the opportunity to share in God’s work and blessing, we will not demean God’s abundant grace by the use of gimmicks, pressure, premiums, or crisis appeals. 
• We will clearly, honestly, and effectively communicate our need and leave the donor’s decision whether and how fully to participate between them and the Lord. 
• We will not limit the generosity of God’s people, but instead will challenge them to give generously and to know that God’s blessing will follow. 
• We will fully disclose open accounting of our stewardship. 
• We will receive all gifts as the investments of God’s people, showing the utmost diligence in our stewardship of those gifts and using them wisely in projects of excellence and enduring value in God’s kingdom. As projects are completed and funding goals are reached, we will publicly praise the Lord for His goodness and thank those to whom He gave hearts of generosity.

In a private school, tuition only covers a portion of the child’s education. Our motivation is to maintain tuition at a level that is affordable for most families. The Annual Fund has been established to offset the difference between tuition and the actual operational cost of the school each ear. Early in the year, parents are given an opportunity to make a pledge to the Annual Fund and early participation allows the school to adjust the budgets accordingly. Highland Christian Academy is a 501(c) 3 charitable organization and therefore all financial gifts are tax deductible.

 

Matching Gifts


You can multiply your gift to Highland Christian Academy if your employer has a Matching Gift program. Thousands of companies have programs that will double or match your tax-deductible contribution made by their employee. Check with your personnel office to find out about your company’s Matching Gift Program.

Information about Golden Dome

 With its enactment of the Georgia Education Expense Credit (HB1133), Georgia has joined several other states that are using similar programs to provide the state's children with greater opportunities for access to learning.

The Georgia Private School Tax credit Law allows eligible private citizens and corporations to receive a dollar-for-dollar tax credit against their Georgia income tax liabilities.  The amounts contributed to the SSO are used to provide scholarships to students who desire to attend private K-12 schools.  Individuals who are members of an LLC, shareholders of a Sub-chapter "s" corporation , or a partnership . are eligible foe a tax credit for the actual amount expended not to exceed $10,000.00 , whichever is less.  Corporations who contribute to qualified SSO's are eligible for a credit against their Georgia income tax liability in an amount not to exceed the actual amount expended or 75 percent of the the corporation's income tax liability, whichever is less.

Attached to the link above is the donor information sheet for the fund IT-QEE-TP1.  The link is the SSO that Highland Christian Academy is partnered with to help eligible students obtain a Christian Education .  You can print the form and mail it directly to Golden Dome or return it the the school to be forwarded to them.
