Giving to ccls

We offer various methods by which you can make financial gifts to our school. Gifts may be made to the school’s general operating budget, or designated to a specific fund of your choice. Each gift is a blessing to our community, and our Mission Advancement office welcomes the opportunity to assist you in determining how you can give. Please contact Jen Pawlitz, Director of Mission Advancement,, , with any questions.

  • CASH

    Cash gifts may be made outright or as a pledge. Checks may be mailed to the CCLS office. Cash gifts may also be made online through our PayPal account at this link.


    Maximize your gift through employer gift matching programs. Many employers match as much as 100% of charitable contributions which their employees make to educational institutions. We have provided a partial list of companies that match gifts in our area at this link. We encourage you to check with your employer (even if not on this list) when you give a gift to CCLS.  


    Gifts of stock and other securities may be made to CCLS through our Wells Fargo Advisors free DTC securities transfer process. 


    Designate a planned gift to CCLS through your will or trust and leave a legacy in support of our ministry.


    Make a gift to the CCLS Leadership Fund (which is similar to an endowment fund) and provide for the Christian education of future generations of CCLS students. 


    Non-cash gifts of goods or services may also be given to CCLS.


    You can support CCLS through some of the many “giving-back” programs available, such as SCRIP gift certificates, Amazon Smile online, and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans-Thrivent Choice.

Christ Community Lutheran School is a Missouri not-for-profit corporation that has been granted tax-exempt status by the I.R.S. under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Accordingly, your financial gift to CCLS may be tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. CCLS encourages potential donors to consult their tax advisor(s) in connection with making a gift. CCLS respects the privacy of its donors. A copy of the “Donor-Privacy Policy” is available at this link.
