Christ Child Academy is not a private school – it is a parochial school. Although we are generously supported by our Tri-parish, we rely on our parents, parishioners, alumni and area businesses to aid us in our continued ministry of Catholic education. We welcome any and all gifts. Some ideas for gifts to our school are listed below.
To make a gift or inquiry please contact Mark Ruedinger our Principal at:

Gifts of Cash/Check
For tax purposes, gifts of cash/check are considered to be complete on the date they are delivered or postmarked, if mailed.
Corporate Matching Maximize your gift! Many employers sponsor a matching gift program. This will maximize your contribution. Check out the details for your matching gift program through the Human Resource office at your work place.
This allows you to honor your family and friends, living or deceased. You may establish a named endowment fund with a gift of $5,000 or more, or you can contribute to an established endowment fund. Contact Christ Child Academy for a complete list of current endowment funds.
Bequests made through a will or living trust
They are especially popular for people who want to make a gift but can not give up income or capital during their lifetime. Contact Christ Child Academy or your attorney to discuss ways to make a bequest gift.
If you have a life insurance policy whose benefits you no longer need or if you would like to make a large gift with little cost, you should consider naming Christ Child Academy as owner and beneficiary of a life insurance policy. In doing so, you will receive a charitable deduction. In removing the life insurance policy from your estate, you may also reduce your estate taxes.
Securities and Real Estate Gifts
Appreciated securities and real estate during your lifetime allow you to enjoy the benefit of witnessing the impact of your generosity for the causes you care about while possibly generating significant tax advantages.
Charitable Gift Annuities and Charitable Remainder Trusts
These provide donors with income for life with substantial tax benefits. A charitable remainder is left for Christ Child Academy at the completion of the gift contract.
