Regents Capital Campaign

You can help shape the future of Regents School of Charlottesville when you partner financially with the “Deeply Rooted” capital campaign. After eight years of growth in our current rented locations, Regents needs a permanent home-- and we need it quickly!

 

More About the Campaign

Our initial kindergarten class has reached seventh grade. With their entry into the Logic School, they have moved to our upper school campus at Jefferson Park Baptist Church. We are running out of space for their younger school mates to join them there as each grade grows every year.  In fact, the next five years will see more than 100 students move from the Grammar School to the Logic and Rhetoric School. Our current Logic and Rhetoric school can only hold about seventy of them in any given year.  To magnify the space challenges, the organization which owns our Grammar School campus plans to sell the building.  We could potentially be displaced at any time.

Please join with a host of other community leaders who have seen the value in investing in Charlottesville’s first Classical Christian school. Your partnership will help build a single permanent campus where all of the Regents’ students can come together as they learn to think logically, speak winsomely, and understand God’s truths fully.

We would love to know if you plan to pray, give financially, or both. Please fill out our commitment form by clicking below. If you have already made a commitment and would like to make a payment, click the Donate button below.

Ways to Give

Gifts of Securities / Stock

Gifts of securities offer significant tax advantages to the donor. By making a gift of this type, the donor can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, while avoiding capital gains taxes. For details, please contact the Development Office for our preferred account information.

IRA Charitable Rollover

This provision allows retirees age 70 1/2 and older to donate up to $100,000 tax-free from their IRA to a charitable organization, including Regents.

Gifts In-Kind

Gifts In-Kind are contributions of tangible items that Regents would otherwise have to purchase, for example materials for our students or building or items to auction at our annual Gala event.

Planned Gifts

Planned gifts (also called legacy or estate giving) are deferred gifts made in a donor’s estate plans. For more on legacy gifts to Regents, click here.

For more on legacy gifts to Regents, see the Planned Giving section below.
 

Donor Advised Fund

The National Christian Foundation is an organization that enables donors to set up funds to accept transfers of stock and securities that can then be used to support Regents. Many donors with significant assets find this type of fund to simplify gift making by separating the financial recordkeeping for tax purposes from the donation process.  

For more information on any of these giving methods, or to discuss other giving options, please contact Jackie Jamison, Director of Development at jjamison@regents-school.org

Tax Credits

Have you ever wanted to decide where you want your tax dollars to go? Would you like to nearly triple the impact of your gift to Regents? If you pay Virginia state taxes, now you can! 

Through the Educational Improvement Scholarship Tax Credit (EISTC), you can direct your state tax dollars to help students at Regents. click here.

Legacy Gifts

As you make giving decisions, we encourage you to consider a legacy gift to Regents School of Charlottesville. A legacy gift would be an investment in future generations of young Christian leaders. All of these gifts will be used towards construction of Regents’ campus. Gifts provide the donor with tax benefits and Regents with critical resources to fulfill our educational mission. What follows is a general outline of common gift planning tools used by donors to provide legacy gifts. This can sound complicated, but we can help you understand how easy legacy giving can be! Contact Jackie Jamison directly with your questions as you consider a legacy gift.

 

Types of Legacy Gifts

WILLS or LIVING TRUSTS
Bequests can be arranged through your WILL or LIVING TRUST. They may be a gift of a specific amount, a specific asset, or all or part of the residue of your estate. In most cases, these gifts are deductible for estate tax purposes.

LIFE INSURANCE 
policies may be transferred to Regents. You will receive tax benefits while providing for Regents’ future. Often the value of this type of gift will be larger than the amount invested.

BENEFICIARY DESIGNATIONS
Designate the death beneficiary of a LIFE INSURANCE or RETIREMENT PLAN to Regents.

CHARITABLE REMAINDER TRUSTS 
will provide current income benefits to you and your family with future benefits payable to Regents.

CHARITABLE LEAD TRUSTS 
will provide current income benefits to Regents and future benefits to you or your family.

Regents School of Charlottesville welcomes the opportunity to discuss these or other deferred gift options that might meet your financial needs.

Tax Credits

For every $500 you give, you receive a $325 credit towards your state taxes and 90% of your gift goes directly to students at Regents who need financial assistance! That means for a gift of $175 over and above what you normally pay in taxes, you can direct $450 to go to students at Regents who need financial assistance. Last year, more than 30 students were able to attend Regents with the help of this program. But Regents needs your help - we have more than $80,000 in additional need for students who are currently not receiving assistance.

 

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Fill out this one-page form stating the amount of your intended gift and send it to Renew A Nation, the organization who administers the scholarship tax credit program.

  2. Write a check to Renewanation in the next 180 days. 65% of the amount of this gift will be issued to you as a state tax credit.

  3. Claim the credit on your state tax return (and deduct the amount of your gift on your federal taxes as well!)
