Together We Help GWA Succeed 
 

Would you like to make a gift to George Walton Academy but don’t know where or how to begin? The Annual Loyalty Fund is always a good introduction to giving at GWA, but you may also want to explore the methods below. 

George Walton Academy is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, so your gift is always tax-deductible.


Methods of Giving


Supporting GWA is easy and convenient with a variety of giving methods available. Browse more details about our giving methods below. 


Making a donation through our online donation portal is probably the easiest way to give to GWA. Use a credit card to make a quick and secure donation at your convenience. 


In addition to making gifts by credit card through GWA's online donation portal, you can also call Jeanie Beach in the development office to make a credit card gift by phone.

Please make gifts by check payable to George Walton Academy and designate the fund name in the memo line. Gifts can be mailed using the address and format below:

George Walton Academy
Annual Loyalty Fund
One Bulldog Drive
Monroe, GA 30655


You can make a pledge to support GWA to be paid at a future date or in a series of installments. Contact the development office for more information or to make a giving pledge.


Many corporations will match philanthropic donations made by their employees. This method is a great way to maximize your gift to GWA! Send us the appropriate paperwork from your employer’s human resources or personnel department, and your gift to the school will be matched according to your company's guidelines. 


A gift of appreciated securities to GWA is simple and comes with its own benefits. A wire transfer is the easiest way to make a gift of stock. Please notify the development office when you make the transfer and provide your broker with the following information:

Firm Name: Edward Jones
DTC# 0057
Account # 39703898 (1-7)
Account Name: George Walton Academy, Inc.
George Walton Academy’s Tax ID Number: 58-1077042
Broker Phone: (770) 266-0150


We’re always happy to receive gifts of goods or services that may provide a budgetary savings to the school or fulfill a particular need. Gifts in kind must be approved through the development office before being delivered to the school. Document your donation via an in-kind donation form and submit it to Jeanie Beach. We recommend you consult your tax advisor to explore the tax benefits specific to your gift. 


The Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program is the result of the Education Expense Credit law, passed by Georgia’s elected officials in 2008. This program allows individuals and corporations to receive a dollar-for-dollar Georgia income tax credit for redirecting a portion of their state income tax payments to GOAL.

GOAL uses these redirected funds to provide private school scholarships to qualified students transferring from a Georgia public school. Taxpayers can designate which school receives their redirected tax payments for scholarships, and as a GOAL partner, GWA is able to directly benefit from your redirected funds.

This annual, elective program makes a big difference for GWA students. For more information, check out GWA’s GOAL policies and procedures page or contact Director of Business Operations Jenni Cole.


Volunteers are crucial to the continued success of GWA. Please contact Director of Dawgs 360 Elizabeth McDonel if you would like to volunteer your time or discuss other creative ways to get involved.
