Ways to Give

Contributions to The Cornerstone School are a tangible way to express your appreciation for the school and its commitment to future generations. These gifts provide unique curriculum programs for students, development opportunities for faculty, capital improvements, and tuition assistance. Your donation provides an immediate benefit to the children, faculty, and programs of our school.

We offer a variety of gift options to provide donors with maximum convenience and flexibility. From planned giving to online donations, making a contribution is as simple as it is impactful.



As a non-profit 501(c)(3) independent school, The Cornerstone School relies on philanthropic support from our families and community partners. Each student's education is financed by both tuition and annual giving funds. Annual giving ensures that The Cornerstone School can maintain its reputation of providing an unprecedented educational experience. 

Your contribution to Annual Fund supports our mission to prepare students for success with an innovative curriculum and inspirational teaching that develops a passion for learning. This is the legacy of The Cornerstone School and we invite you to be a part of it.

Our annual giving season is every year from July 1 to June 30. We encourage families to make a gift they are proud of and everyone is asked to participate. Please join us in making an impact in the lives our students. You may contact our Development Office with questions by calling (352) 351-8840 ext. 230.


Everyone has different financial needs at different times in their life. Perhaps you wish to give a gift to The Cornerstone School but are unable to do it all at once. Or, perhaps you prefer to budget your expenses. You can pledge a specific amount of money to be billed monthly.



Many companies will match your gifts to charitable organizations. To find out more, contact the human resources department or business office at your place of employment. We will gladly provide you with any necessary documentation to secure a matching gift.



Gifts of securities and stocks can be donated after retaining them for at least one year after purchase. They are valued by the fair market value on the day they are donated. Gifts such as these can have significant tax advantages. Please check with your accountant prior to making a gift of securities or stocks.



While it is difficult to think of a future when we are no longer here, it is still possible to provide gifts for future generations. Planned Giving, also known as Estate Planning, allows one to incorporate a charitable donation into their will. There are many significant tax advantages to Planned Giving. Please consult with your accountant or contact the school to make a donation of this kind.
