A Chinese Tradition

Each Chinese New Year is a time for giving. Generally, Chinese families traditionally give out 红包 Red envelope emoji clipart.

We invite you to participate in this tradition by making a Red Envelope gift to Hope Chinese Charter School. Your Red Envelope gift represents your well wishes for the student(s) you know at Hope this school year, while also supporting their education and investing in their future.

Every contribution matters. Your support guarantees that we can continue to provide the high quality academic program we are known for not only this year, but for years to come.

If your friends and family prefer email or text, click here for a digital version of our Red Envelope letter that you can share.  They can also make a secure online donation or send a check made out to HCCS to the address below (please ask them to include the name of the student in whose honor they are giving):

Hope Chinese Charter School
3500 SW 104th Avenue
Beaverton, OR 97005

Matching Gifts

Matched Giving

Matched Giving is when an organisation (normally a company) matches the amount of fundraising an employee does for another organisation (normally a charity). When an employee makes a donation, they’ll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Companies usually match donations at a 1:1 ratio, but some will match at a 2:1, 3:1, or even a 4:1 ratio.

Why do companies match donations?

Companies of all sizes match donations their employees make to nonprofits because it’s an easy, structured way for them to support good work in their communities. CSR, or corporate social responsibility, is an important factor in how the public perceives brands and companies these days.

Corporate matching gifts are an efficient and straightforward way for companies to build relationships with charities.

Intel, Nike and others will match donations and donate to match volunteer hours.  This is a great way to double your efforts and bring more money into the school for all our kids.

If you work for Intel or Nike, you have the option to donate through their donation website (ie. Benevity, YourCause).  This is the easiest way to ensure the company matching donation gets made as you can pay with a credit or debit card and the company will send both the donation and matching to the HOPE.

If you need to pay with check, cash or ACH through the school you will need a Donation Receipt (automatically sent by email from the development office after the donation has been recorded).  After you receive your donation receipt, submit that to the Intel/Nike website to get the company to send a matching donation to the HOPE.

Stock Donations

An investment account is maintained by the school with a minimum balance of cash as required to facilitate the donation of stock to HCCS and liquidation of the stock. The maintenance of this account to accommodate these transactions is the responsibility of the Treasurer and finance committee of the school board.

Legacy Gifting

“Many donors don’t have the capacity to give major gifts on an annual basis but they can make a major gift by using other types of assets, like art and life insurance policies, and more thoughtful planning through estate gifts and endowments.”  Legally sometimes referred to the act of giving something through a will or larger estate plan, deferred giving, estate giving, etc.

Ilona Bray, J.D. noted that “the vast majority of legacy gifts to nonprofits are made not through fancy annuities and other financial arrangements requiring the nonprofit’s management, but the old-fashioned way, through wills and simple probate-avoidance devices (such as living trusts and beneficiary designations on IRAs, 401(k)s, and other financial and investment instruments).

If you or you know someone who is interested in providing a legacy gift to Hope Chinese Charter School, please contact the development office at [email protected] and we will coordinate the process for such giving.
