The Einstein Academy strives to build a wider and deeper sense of community, as well as to promote education that enhances a child’s growth and development. No matter the size of each gift, it goes a long way in helping us to achieve this goal.
Support our School
The Einstein Academy continues to focus on academically-talented students. Our goal is to ensure we provide the best educational environment and experience for children who attend our school. In order to achieve this goal, we look to our current and former community members for support. Our parents, board, alumni, alumni families, grandparents, friends, staff, and faculty help to ensure a bright future for the school and continuing educational opportunities for our students.
Your donations support children and families who recognize the importance of our educational environment. Gifts received from donors help The Einstein Academy provide scholarships to children who would otherwise not be able to attend. In addition, donation in materials and technology help teachers on an ongoing basis.
We are extremely grateful to all families, friends, alumni and other supporters who give generously to the school each year. Every gift is important to the success of our school and every little bit is appreciated.

There are many kinds of planned gifts, all of which offer significant tax benefits to the donor, among them:
Assets transferred through a donor’s estate. Any asset may be given in this way, though we most commonly receive cash gifts set out in a donor’s will. Other bequests include the proceeds of life insurance policies and retirement plans.
Gifts of a Future Interest in Real Estate
Some donors make gifts of personal residences or second homes, retaining, the right to use them for their lifetime.
Charitable Lead Trust
With this gift a donor removes specified assets from his/her estate, receives immediate tax savings and provides the school income from those assets for a period of years. At the end of the gift period, the assets may be returned to the donor or, tax free, to a third party. Parents and grandparents find the charitable lead trust an excellent way to provide for a future generation while accomplishing good work today and decreasing their likely estate taxes.
Science Daily states that, “Parental effort and involvement is consistently associated with higher levels of achievement and the magnitude of parental effect is substantial.” When parents are involved at their child’s school students have higher grades and test scores as well as increased motivation and self-esteem. With this in mind, we look forward to working with each of you in at least one of the following activities.
