Recurring gifts are a critical part of reaching our Phoenix Fund and Foundation Campaign goals. In recent years, recurring donors have collectively contributed about $40,000 each year towards our annual Phoenix Fund goal - that’s more than 12% of $325,000.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do I set up a recurring gift?
There are two simple ways to set up a recurring gift:
1) Donate online through our Online Giving page and check the box next to “Show my support by making this a recurring donation.” Your card will be charged for the amount you choose at the frequency you choose. If you wish to cover the processing fees associated with your recurring online gift, you can select this option before completing the form.
2) Set up automatic payments to Raleigh Charter High School through your bank’s bill pay or online banking feature. Please indicate “Phoenix Fund” in the memo line if you have the option to do so. In most cases, your bank will mail your check directly to the school for the amount you choose at the frequency you choose.
Is my recurring gift tax deductible?
Yes! All donations to Raleigh Charter High School and the Raleigh Charter High School Foundation are tax deductible. Information is listed at the bottom of this page. We send an annual acknowledgement letter tax-receipt to every recurring donor each January. This letter will indicate the total of your tax-deductible donations for the prior year. If you ever wish to receive a record of your giving other than the January letter, please contact us.
Does my recurring gift rollover to the following school year?
How do I modify my recurring gift? (Increase or decrease amount, suspend or cancel payments, change the payment method or date, etc.)
If you set up your recurring gift through our online giving page, you can contact us to modify, suspend, or cancel your gift at any time. If you set up your recurring gift through your bank’s online bill pay function, you should be able to modify or cancel these payments through your online banking system.
Can I choose the frequency and billing date for my payment?
Yes! When you set up a recurring payment through our online donation form, you can choose to give weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. You are also able to schedule the start date.
What are the advantages of recurring gifts for donors?
For many, contributing a smaller monthly amount is a more comfortable way to give rather than making a one-time gift. In addition, setting up a recurring gift now ensures your continued support of RCHS for as long as you would like to give! You can set it and forget it - no need to remember to make a gift each month or reset it each year.
When can I set up a recurring gift?
Anytime! No matter when you set up your recurring gift, your contributions will be counted towards our annual fundraising goals.
Can I set up a recurring gift through my workplace?
It depends on your workplace. Many workplace giving campaigns do allow you to make donations on a recurring schedule. If this is a method of giving you’re interested in, we encourage you to contact human resources at your employer to inquire.
Can recurring gifts be matched?
In many cases, yes! Some employers will only match gifts made through workplace giving systems. If you have questions about if your company will match your recurring gift, please contact us and ask your employer’s human resources department if they match recurring donations.
