If you would like to make an online donation, please select the “Make a Gift Now” button. You can pledge and pay by credit card or direct debit from your bank account.

Several of our families take advantage of corporate matching gifts. Find out whether your employer participates in a matching gift program, and contact the Development Office at 503.252.8586 so we can help you increase your donation on behalf of the students at CCS!
You may desire to pay tribute to someone special with an Honor or Memorial Gift. A letter of acknowledgment will be sent to the person or family advising them of the gift. The gift amount will not be disclosed.
Some in-kind donations of equipment, materials, and supplies may be accepted. Please contact the Development Office at 503.252.8586 to discuss how a donation of this type might fill a need at Columbia.
Unrestricted gifts give us the greatest flexibility to use funds where they are most needed. Individuals and families often want to make a monetary donation to a specific area of the school such as Athletics or Drama. We invite you to contact the Development Office at 503.252.8586 to discuss ideas that you might have to give to specific areas of the school.
Taxpayers 70½ or older can distribute up to $100,000 each year, tax-free, directly from your IRA to Columbia Christian Schools. This type of charitable distribution can apply towards the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and still be excluded from adjusted gross income. If you and your spouse file a joint tax return, your spouse can also make a charitable contribution of up to $100,000.
One of the simplest ways to give real estate, stocks, mutual funds, or commodities is through a Donor Advised Fund. This is an account you create directly with us for setting aside money or assets, receiving immediate tax benefits and allowing you the flexibility to distribute gifts over time. It’s like having your own charitable giving account.
