Support Berean Academy
Since 1946, Berean Academy has strived to educate young lives to contribute to society and to be effective disciples in the Kingdom of God. Our ability to develop students academically and spiritually, and ultimately to impact lives for eternity, is a direct result of many generous donors. Berean Academy receives no state funding; therefore, we are grateful for God’s faithfulness to our ministry through the giving of His people. Berean is a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Kingdom Building Campaign - Phase Two
The Kingdom Building Campaign (KBC) is a three phase building plan that addresses multiple issues on our growing campus. Phase One provided new offices and cafeteria, as well as improved safety and traffic flow. We are currently fundraising for Phase Two, which will provide additional classrooms to our elementary wing. This will allow the elementary program, currently in three different areas of the campus, to be together in one wing. Once completed, additional classroom space will then be available for the secondary program. Berean maintains a "no debt" policy; therefore, we must have adequate gifts and/or pledges before Phase Two construction can begin. Gifts of all sizes will help us reach this goal!

Other Ways to Give
If you are 70½ or older and have an IRA, you can make a "Qualified Charitable Distribution" QCD) by donating part/all of your IRA to Berean Academy. The QCD gift to Berean will not require you to pay taxes on that withdrawal. An IRA withdrawal is normally taxable, but if it is paid directly to Berean from your IRA account, it will not be taxed. This is a great way to support Beran while saving on your taxes. A QCD may also help satisfy a portion/all of your Required Minimum Distributions, which start at the age of 72.
Distributions should be made payable to Berean Academy and mailed to PO Box 70, Elbing, KS 67041. Please recognize Berean Academy is not offering tax advice, and we recommend you seek counsel through a tax accountant. If you have questions about the process, please talk to your financial advisor, or you may contact Kathy Veer.
Many large corporations have “matching gift” programs. You donate to Berean, and they match it with an additional gift to Berean! Therefore, everything you give doubles automatically! Berean is already established with several corporations. If your employer has a program like this, but we aren’t set up with them, we are happy to submit the necessary forms to be added to their program.
