Methods of Giving

Starkville Academy and the Office of Development welcomes your financial support. It does make a difference! Tuition alone cannot meet all of the needs of our school.  However, donations continue to enable Starkville Academy to enrich the school’s educational programs, equipment and facilities. This financial support will allow Starkville Academy to continue to offer academic excellence to its students.

Bequests – Bequests may be made through your will and may include a specific dollar amount or a percentage of your estate.

Cash – Give by check or other means of giving cash.

Life Insurance – Assign a charitable beneficiary (or owner and beneficiary) of an existing or new policy.

Matching Gifts – Many corporations will match the charitable gifts made by their employees.

Personal Property Given for a Related Use – Deed or deliver property to the recipient.

Securities – Send an unendorsed stock certificate in 1 envelope and a signed stock power form in another envelope.  The gift is complete on the postmarked date of the later envelope.

Tribute & Memorial Giving – Gifts may be made in memory or honor of a loved one.  This is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize a student, teacher, alumni, friend, business associate or family member.  We will gladly send an acknowledgment card to whomever you request.

“The successful private school builds a fund-raising paradigm based on three primary income streams:  a rate of tuition that sustains the operation of the school, an annual fund to provide the enhancements not provided for by the operating budget, and capital campaigns to fund construction and expansion.”
