We don't think it is an overstatement to say that, when you invest in Trinity Oaks, you invest in the promise of the future — the future of our children, our community and our world for Christ.
For 30 years Trinity Oaks Christian Academy has been partnering with Christian families in southern Lake and McHenry counties to provide a high quality, Christ-centered education, in a caring and nurturing environment. The value of this Christ-centered education is evident in the positive impact that our students and alumni have in our local community and beyond.
Tuition and fees do not cover the entire cost of providing a Trinity Oaks education. We rely on the gracious and generous support of our school community and friends to help us meet these costs.
These contributions ensure that the school has adequate resources to offer a superior educational experience in a safe and engaging environment. Without donations from people like you we would not be able to balance our budget, talented educators would be difficult to attract and retain, and financial aid would not be available.
HOW I CAN SUPPORT TOCA?
Prayer, service, and financial gifts, all support the mission and vision of Trinity Oaks Christian Academy and advance the kingdom of God. In 1989, Trinity Oaks Christian Academy was founded (as Harvest Christian School) and incorporated by a group of committed Christian parents as a nonprofit educational organization. Its chief desire was to honor the Lord by providing a quality, Christ-centered education for their children as an alternative to the public educational system. The establishment of TRINITY OAKS / HARVEST was bathed in prayer by these faithful visionaries. The school opened its doors in the fall of 1991 with ten students in kindergarten through grade four. Today we are now serving Preschool — Grade 12. God has answered many prayers, and we thank God for the partnership of so many. Your generous giving makes a difference, now and for eternity!
Pray with us and for us every monday!
Join us on Monday mornings after drop off for parent prayer. Younger children are welcome to stay and play quietly while parents lift the needs of our school community to the Lord.

Estate Gifts — Leaving a Legacy
You may want to consider leaving a lasting legacy to TOCA through your will, trust or life insurance policies. You can also make a meaningful future gift to TOCA while generating income, immediate tax savings and other benefits today.
Gifts from Retirement Accounts
Retirement plan assets can be a practical source from which to make gifts. Many tax advisors suggest using these funds to make charitable gifts because amounts withdrawn from retirement accounts can be taxable to you and eventually to your heirs if left to them. Giving in this way may result in little or no tax impact when you report the amount withdrawn along with an offsetting charitable deduction.
Giving securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) that are worth more than they cost can bring additional tax savings. Such gifts are generally deductible for income tax purposes at their full current value if they have been owned for longer than one year. We use Journey Financial to process these transactions. Please contact Katie Haslow, (847) 462-5971, for further details.
