Ways to Give

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”

Hebrews 13:16

Come Visit

We love when our supporters visit! If you would like to schedule a time to see our school during the school day, please call the office at 216-749-5300.

ONLINE

The best way to give is online — it is secure and simple and ensures consistent giving. Luther Memorial can receive monetary gifts online by credit card as a one-time gift or a recurring gift at an interval of your choosing. Click here to donate now.

ELECTRONIC BILL PAY

As an alternative to using a credit card, authorize your bank or credit union to provide recurring payments to Luther Memorial directly from your bank account.

AUTOMATIC WITHDRAWAL (ACH)

Automated Clearing House payment processing is a way for Luther Memorial to accept donations from supporters who wish to give via direct debit. Contact the school office for our account information at 216-749-5300 to set this up.

STOCK TRANSFERS

If you give stock to a nonprofit, you can deduct the fair market value of those donated shares from your taxable income — just as if you donated cash. Additionally, you get the benefit of not having to pay capital gains tax on the appreciation of the stock’s value since you purchased it.

If you would like to make a gift of stock to Luther Memorial, please call the Development office at 216-749-5300. 

PLANNED GIVING

Planned giving can be a way to reduce or avoid estate and inheritance taxes and help to insure long-term charitable giving to Luther Memorial. Planned gifts can be made through bequests, life insurance policies, individual retirement accounts (IRA’s), and charitable trusts.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contribution. The impact of your gift to Luther Memorial may be doubled. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses too.
