Your investment in the Horizon Academy Annual Fund changes the lives of our students.
The Annual Fund supports a variety of Horizon Academy programs including faculty development, visual and performing arts, physical education, counseling, technology, and the library. It enables Horizon Academy to attract and retain the best educators and keep classroom sizes small.

Gifts of Stock
- Appreciated Securities
By giving stock that has appreciated, you receive two benefits. First, you receive a charitable income tax deduction for your donation, and second, you avoid paying capital gains tax which would ordinarily be required if you sold the stock yourself. If you have held the stock for more than 12 months, you can deduct the full fair market value of the stock at the time of your gift, regardless of how much you paid for it.
- Depreciated Securities
If your stock has depreciated in value, another option is to take the capital loss. Sell the stock to realize the loss and take the tax deduction for that loss. Then generate a charitable contribution deduction by donating the cash proceeds to Horizon Academy.
Simply ask your employer for a Donor-Directed Contribution form and under the Direct Your Gift section check the box for “United Way in Another City or A Local Non-United Way Agency”. You may then write in the donation amount, our name, address, and FIN Number (provided upon request).
Horizon Academy’s fiscal year runs from July 1st to June 30th. All donations to Horizon Academy qualify as a charitable tax deduction to the extent allowed by law. Upon receipt of your donation, you will receive a thank you letter convenient for your tax purposes and you’ll be listed in our annual report. We also welcome monthly giving in any amount! Just go to the “Make a Gift” button above!
If you have any questions about gifts, donations, fundraisers or volunteering, please contact the Development Office at (913) 789-9443 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
