Giving to MCA
Honorary Memorial Gifts
Gifts to Maranatha Christian Academy are a marvelous way to recognize students, alumni, current and former faculty, family members or friends. Honorees or families of memorialized individuals receive special note cards notifying them of the donor(s) and his/her/their thoughtfulness. (Gift amounts are not noted.)
Take advantage of an employer’s matching gift program
Many corporations match their employee’s gift dollar-for-dollar (or more!). These companies usually have specific requirements governing the matching program and require the school to complete a form as part of the process. Families and friends are asked to contact their Human Resources Department for more information about their employer’s matching gift program. Maranatha Christian Academy has been incorporated as a non-profit organization in the state of Georgia and is recognized as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization with the IRS. All donations to Maranatha Christian Academy are tax-deductible as defined by the IRS.
Other Ways to Give

If you prefer to send us your gift through standard mail, you may do so by printing the gift form and sending it with your gift via mail.

Cash and Checks
Although it is rare, some constituents do make cash contributions. However, we never recommend that donors send cash when using a postal service or courier.
Donors wishing to make a cash gift, are asked to visit the Business Office so that we can issue a cash receipt.
Checks are by far the most common method of giving. Donors should make checks payable to Maranatha Christian Academy with an indication of the appropriate fund on the note line of the check. It is particularly important that donors include this note to ensure proper crediting of the gift.
To give a gift using a credit card by phone, please call the Business Office at 770-536-6334.
Gifts of Real Estate or Personal Property
Gifts of real estate often allow the donor to avoid capital gains taxes while realizing a charitable deduction. Gifts of real estate or personal property (e.g., jewelry, artwork, and collectibles) require prior approval. Please consult with the Business Office.
Some families prefer to be anonymous. Maranatha always respects such decisions and indicates these types of contributions as “Anonymous”. Donors wishing to remain anonymous MUST indicate this when making their donation or in a separate letter to the Business Office.
Please contact the finance office for any questions concerning giving 770-536-6334.
