- Complete forms or sign up online as required by your employer and submit your request to participate in the program
- Make a donation to the North County Education Foundation through your employer’s matching donation program
- Notify Sonia Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org that the donation is in process and specify to which school site you’d like to earmark the donation or if it is a general donation for the Classical Academies.

Appreciated Securities/Planned Gifts:
A gift of long-term, appreciated, marketable securities helps save you taxes twice. When you donate appreciated stocks or securities, you can deduct their full current value, not just what you originally paid, bypassing capital gains taxes. Such a gift provides an income tax charitable deduction and a capital gains tax savings. It is often the best asset for donors to give, especially when making larger gifts.
Planned gifts are gift arrangements to a beneficiary or beneficiaries named by the donor. A planned gift maximizes your giving potential and contributes to our school’s financial security.
For questions regarding appreciated securities, endowment, real estate gifts, planned gifts, life insurance, bequests, capitol, legacy giving, please contact the Development Office at 760-715-5110.
The INVEST program is designed to partner businesses, corporations, and individuals with education. Annual sponsors receive the benefit of participating in school events such as the annual JumpStart Parent Education Conference, all school theater performances, donor appreciation events, and special events. INVEST in our schools to make a difference in the life of a student, the quality of a community, and the future of education.
All donations are tax-deductible and are made to the North County Education Foundation, which directly funds student education and programs at The Classical Academies. More information >
