It is the Board of Directors’ desire to increase enrollment slowly to a maximum enrollment of 650-700 students. As wise stewards anticipating this continued growth, Veritas must now begin to financially secure the several adjacent buildings on the property. Through extensive research and strategic planning, the Board of Directors created a roadmap to achieve this goal through the Capital Campaign launched in October 2013.
When students step onto our campus, they join a story nearly one hundred years in the making. First as a seminary and now as Veritas School, this is a place where young Christian scholars, eager to learn about their world, have been—and will be—nurtured and prepared for a lifetime of learning and service. On our beautiful, historic campus, the seeds of learning are planted, nourished by excellent curriculum, and cultivated by dedicated faculty.
Golden acorns below represent leadership gifts from Veritas’ Board of Directors and leading donors. The white acorns represent opportunities to invest. We are also pleased to announce a generous $250,000 matching gift challenge from the Mary Morton Parsons Foundation. If you, or someone you know, might be interested in a gift to the Capital Campaign, please contact Head of School Keith Nix at firstname.lastname@example.org or Director of Development Barbara Hickerson at email@example.com
- “When we enrolled our children at Veritas, we desired several things: that they would be in a place where they felt known and loved, that they would receive an academically rigorous education, and that they would learn in an environment where a Christian worldview and values are truly woven throughout everything they do. Those expectations have been exceeded in so many ways. We consider our giving to be an investment in something that will make a difference in our family, our city, and even the world.”Jess and Steve Godfrey
- “We give to the capital campaign because God has entrusted the Veritas community with a unique opportunity in this new campus. We value our children’s ability to learn and navigate the world around them in an environment filled with grace and love; we desire the same experience for many future Veritas students.”Karen Chippendale, Veritas School Advisory Council Member,
Annual Fund and Capital Campaign Donor,
Proud Parent of William ’24, Addison ’26, and James ‘27
Cash Gifts are the simplest and easiest gifts you can make. They can be made through credit/debit card transactions, outright cash, or personal checks made payable to Veritas School.
Matching Gifts can double or even triple the value of your gift. Many employers match gifts made to non-profits by their employees and retirees. To learn if your company matches gifts, please contact your company’s Human Resource Department.
Gifts of Securities offer significant tax advantages to the donor. By making a gift of this type, the donor can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, while avoiding capital gains taxes. For details, please contact the Development Office for our preferred account information with Ameritrade.
Gifts In-Kind are contributions of tangible items that Veritas would otherwise have to purchase.
Planned Gifts are deferred gifts made in a donor’s estate plans.
For more information on any of these giving methods, or to discuss other giving options, please contact Barbara Hickerson, Director of Development at firstname.lastname@example.org
