Ways to Give
Look behind any activity at Paideia, whether in classrooms, on playing fields, in the theater or on the woodchips, and you will find three kinds of charitable gifts that allow Paideia to function: gifts to the annual fund, gifts to capital efforts and gifts to the endowment. All help Paideia sustain and expand its unique approach to education.
The Annual Fund: Essential to the school’s operating budget, the annual fund helps to make up the difference between tuition and the actual day-to-day cost of running the school and educating the students. We hope that Paideia parents will make the annual fund a philanthropic priority.
Capital Campaigns: Periodic campaigns are held for specific facility improvements as needed. Fundraising for Paideia’s most recent capital campaign, the Campaign for All Ages, was concluded in 2008. Our community raised over $26 million in this effort.
Endowment: An endowment can be compared to a savings account or other financial assets that generate income through wise investment of the principal. Long-term growth of the endowment will help satisfy future needs of the school. Income earned from the endowment is used to support the school’s operating budget.
Planned Giving: The Fountain of Youth Society honors everyone who includes Paideia as a beneficiary in their will or estate plans. Deferred gifts of privately held stock, charitable trust, life insurance, and land are also considered planned gifts.
Financial Aid Tax Credit: The Financial Aid Tax Credit (FATC) program provides an opportunity for taxpayers to redirect Georgia tax dollars to provide financial aid assistance to incoming Paideia students that are currently enrolled in public school.
