Creative Giving

In addition to conventional giving, Dayton Christian wishes to assist you with creative donation methods to impact young lives for Christ. Please feel free to reach out to the Advancement Office for information on how to initiate one of these gift options below.

Tribute Gifts: Enable gifts to Dayton Christian to be made in celebration of someone’s major event such as their graduation, baptism, or wedding! Or, honor a family member or friend upon their passing, and be notified when a gift is made in their name.   

Gifts in Kind: Dayton Christian School benefits greatly from donated items which we could or would not be able to purchase from our limited operating funds. There can also be deduction advantages for contributing items based on fair market value. Please contact the Advancement Office to see how particular gifts in kind can help move the needle.

Corporate Matching Gifts: Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees (sometimes even from their spouses and retirees). To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please click the link below and enter your employer’s name in search window. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer. If you don’t see your employer listed, contact your HR office to see if they would consider matching your gift.

My Employer Name


Real Estate: If you own a home or other property you no longer wish to occupy or manage, consider donating it as a gift.

Stocks and Securities: This year, investment market conditions and tax law changes may make it more important than ever that you take time to carefully review your investment picture, especially if you plan to make charitable gifts.

Charitable Gift Annuities: This method of giving is a wonderful way to make meaningful gifts while enjoying income and tax benefits which help enhance your future financial well-being.

Retirement Plans: You may find that your retirement plan might be an excellent “pocket” from which to make a charitable gift today. Provide a future income for loved ones, or alleviate a tax burden by transforming it into a deductible donation.

Giving Through Your Will: Leaving a legacy to future generations is a rewarding and noble act, and a gift through your will can have a lasting impact for years to come. Whether you wish to assist families in need, set up a named scholarship program, or be a lead donor for a new capital campaign, consider making a lifetime gift in this capacity.

Dayton Christian School is registered as a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit organization. Please contact the Advancement Office at Dayton Christian School at 937-291-7207 or with questions surrounding any of these methods of giving, and allow us to partner with you in changing young lives for Christ.
