You can make a major impact for good on the future of CCS and its students through planned giving. There are numerous pathways for you to bless CCS, benefit families, and ensure your legacy all through planned giving. Contact our President, Dr. Brad Moser, to discuss the many ways that you can develop a plan that will benefit everyone involved.
You can make a life-changing impact on the future by remembering Clarksville Christian School in your estate plan or other major gifts. Your gifts can help transform the lives of children and families both now and for generations to come.
Planned giving also offers you more immediate benefits, including tax advantages and additional income for your retirement years, while still benefiting CCS and the children we serve.
