Quakertown Christian School has partnered with Everence to provide charitable services to help you explore a variety of planned giving options. Through gift planning, you can provide future support for Quakertown Christian School, while also giving you and your loved ones financial flexibility, potential tax benefits, and even income for life.

Charitable Remainder Trusts

Farmers can donate commodities like grain or livestock instead of cash to Quakertown Christian School, while also reducing taxes.
Gifts of Stock
You can turn your investments into cash without losing a large portion of your capital gains to taxes by donating all or a portion of your stock to Quakertown Christian School.
Gifts of Real Estate
Giving a charitable gift of real estate is an option for owners of farmland, commercial or residential rental property, or vacant investment land.
Life insurance is a practical and affordable way to donate more than you may have thought possible.
