Annual Giving is the amount projected in the current operating budget which permits the School to enhance student programs. One hundred percent of the money raised for Annual Giving goes directly into the operating budget. The Annual Giving Drive begins in July of each year with letters and continues with brochures and phone calls in the fall to all Cape Henry constituents and concludes June 30 of each year. Parents, grandparents, friends, Founders, faculty, staff, administration, Trustees, vendors, parents of Alumni, and Alumni are all contacted each year.
Planned Giving is the organized effort to secure long term commitments through various forms of deferred gifts. Sound personal financial and estate planning concepts are used to help individual donors plan their gifts in the most tax wise way. Such gifts may be unrestricted or restricted to a donor's field of interest. All Cape Henry constituents are eligible to make a planned gift.
Endowment is a part of Planned Giving. These funds are invested in an endowment fund to produce income to supplement the institution's operating costs. Donors may choose to support a particular area of the School's operating budget, academic or otherwise. In addition to the Cape Henry family, foundations and corporations are contacted to help build the School's endowment. Gifts may be either current or deferred gifts.
