More Ways to Give

Planned Giving

Preserve a legacy by giving in accordance with personal values and beliefs. It also represents a commitment to positively impacting communities in actionable ways.

  • Gift planning vehicles also provide options for donors to make use of complex assets and reduce capital gains and taxes while making an investment in the future our students. If you are considering one of these options, we would love to connect with you! Contact the development team at

  • Charitable bequest: The simplest way to make a planned gift is by including Coulee as a beneficiary of your estate. You can tie this bequest to a specific asset, amount, or even the remainder of the estate after other expenses and bequests have been made.

  • Beneficiary designation: Contact your account representative of an insurance policy or retirement account to complete an updated beneficiary designation form naming Coulee as a beneficiary of some or all of the amount.

  • Charitable trust: There are trust planning ideas that may fit your financial and philanthropic goals. In most cases, a trust provides income to you or your loved ones for a period of time before distributing its balance to Coulee. It can be a strategic way to diversify low-basis assets by reducing capital gains.

Additional Ways to Give

Coulee Christian School is able to accept donations through a variety of channels. Donors may choose to further their impact by making multi-year pledges to support the Building our Future campaign. 

  • Online – The fastest way to make a gift is to give online via your credit card. To provide continuous support to Coulee contact us at (608) 786-3004 -or- email at

  • By Check – Mail a check to Coulee Christian School, Development Office, 230 W Garland St, WI 54669. Please include the pledge / gift agreement form for designated donations.

  • Donor Advised Fund – Recommend gifts from your donor advised fund to support Coulee.  

  • Stock and Securities – Coulee accepts appreciated securities, which offer a larger tax benefit than a cash gift. Contact

    • Stock Gifts:
      If you’re holding appreciated assets like stocks and bonds and want to avoid capital gains taxes, you can transfer those assets directly to Coulee in support of our mission.

    • IRA Gifts:
      Are you required to take a minimum distribution from your retirement plan? There is a tax-effective way to make that distribution directly to Coulee, and the amount will be excluded from your income. Read more about this technique here, and contact your tax advisor for assistance.

  • Real Estate – A gift of real estate can be invaluable in supporting students and programs. If you own real property (land and/or the structures and natural resources on that land), you can donate it to Coulee outright or use it to fund a gift planning vehicle like a charitable trust.

  • Matching Gifts – Many businesses have a matching gift program that can increase the size of your donation.
