Is our gift Tax Deductible?

Yes, all Annual Fund gifts are tax deductible. Additionally, the CARES Act encourages charitable giving with the ability to deduct up to $300 ($600 for a married couple) without itemizing taxes.

How does Tuition and the Annual Fund work together?

Tuition fees are intentionally set below the actual cost it takes to educate a student. We believe in the value of a diverse student body, so we keep tuition costs as low as possible. Tuition covers 82% of the cost of a Moravian Academy education. The Annual Fund supports that deficit of approximately $1,600 per student.

When is the best time to make an Annual Fund gift?

The best time is when you are ready to make the greatest impact on Moravian Academy, whether that be a gift large or small.  Participation and community is of utmost importance.
