Frequently Asked Questions.

You're ready to give but you have some questions. Here are a few answers to common questions about giving to Loma Linda Academy.

The recently passed CARES Act allows donors like you to contribute to public charities and receive a taxable benefit!

When you make a cash contribution to charity (cash gifts to private foundations, donor funds, and supporting organizations are not eligible for the universal deduction) you can receive an above the line charitable deduction! In the midst of uncertainty, your giving can make an impact and provide a tax benefit to you and your family.
Giving Illustration:
When a donor contributes up to $300 ($600 for married households) to a public charity, could receive a tax break such as:
  • A donor in the 10% tax bracket would receive a $30 tax break
  • A donor in the 22% tax bracket would receive a $66 tax break
  • A donor in the 35% tax bracket would receive a $105 tax break.
This will also reduce the donor’s Adjusted Gross Income (AGI).

  • Is my donation tax-deductible?

    Yes. We are a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization and your donation is tax-deductible within the guidelines of U.S. law. Our Tax ID number is 95-1831069. To claim a donation as a deduction on your taxes, please keep your donation receipt as your official record.
  • How is my donation used?

    100% of your donation is going toward the fund you designate. We do not take a portion of your gift to cover other fees.
  • Can I make my donation as a tribute in honor or memory of someone?

    Yes. Please make this designation in the “Other” box. (e.g. “In honor of John Smith” or “In memory of Jane Smith.”)
  • Can my donation be anonymous?

    Yes, we will respect your request to be anonymous. You will still receive a tax-deductible receipt, but your name will not be published anywhere. Call 909-796-0161 ext. 3340 if you would prefer to be an anonymous donor. We respect the privacy of our donors and will not publish any donor names without speaking to the donor prior.
  • Can I donate for a specific student's tuition, music tour, or other fees?

    You can donate to the Student Aid fund which is awarded to families who apply for financial assistance. You can also donate to specific programs such as Wind Symphony or Elementary Art. However, if the gift is designated to a student, we are not able to issue a tax-deductible receipt, only an acknowledgment letter. That payment needs to be handled through the Business Office (909-796-0161 ext. 3351) because it is considered a payment.
