Development

Fundraising Overview

As many know, tuition covers only part of Emerald Heights Academy’s operating costs. Naturally, fundraising is a very important component of making EHA’s mission a reality. In order to keep tuition increases reasonable and make an Emerald Heights Academy education reachable for as many families as possible who would like their children to attend our school, we ask parents, friends and supporters to contribute as generously as they can to EHA’s fundraising efforts.


Emerald Heights Academy depends on its parent population - through their volunteer efforts - to make our school’s fundraising events successful and enable EHA to continue offering quality Catholic formation and challenging academic programs that seek to fulfill our mission of developing Christ-centered leaders for tomorrow. We further seek to garner the support and financial assistance of donors in the community at large who believe in EHA’s mission and wish to generously support our efforts.


We ask that you please prayerfully consider making a gift to Emerald Heights Academy – it is truly an investment not only for educating our children today, but also an investment in our future.


There are a variety of ways to make your gift to Emerald Heights Academy, several of which are listed below. Please contact the school office for more information at 425-643-1671.


Company Matching

Many corporations, such as Boeing and Microsoft, sponsor gift matching programs that benefit private education. Through your employer, your generosity could be doubled with company matching. Additionally, some companies will match volunteer hours through their gift matching programs as well.


Planned Gifts

Planned gifts, such as bequests, trusts, life insurance, assignment of a beneficial interest, endowments, or real estate are other ways of contributing.


Securities

Emerald Heights Academy can accept donation of appreciated securities which may offer the donor tax advantages.


Memorials and Honoraria

Memorial and Honoraria gifts offer an opportunity to honor a relative, friend, or business associate and support Emerald Heights Academy at the same time. Honoraria sent to a person in lieu of personal gifts to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or graduations are just a few examples. During a bereavement period, friends and supporters of EHA often see this as an appropriate means to express sympathy and honor the memory of their chosen honoree. The following message in the obituary of the deceased provides an avenue to make a meaningful and thoughtful gift: “Memorial gifts may be made to: Emerald Heights Academy, 1420 NW Gilman Blvd, Ste 2, PMB 2144, Issaquah, WA 98027.”
