Ways to Give
Your gifts are tax deductible as granted by law. The Lutheran Education Association of Houston is a 501(c)(3) organization; our TIN is 74-6001258.
The easiest way to support LEAH Schools is by making a a one-time or recurring gift with a debit or credit card.
Give by Check
Make your check payable to "LEAH Schools" and mail to
316 E Edgewood Drive
Friendswood, TX 77546
Please include "Westlake" in the memo line if you'd like to designate your gift to Westlake Lutheran Academy.
Many corporations match gifts to charitable institutions such as LEAH Schools, thereby doubling or tripling a gift to the school. Check with your employer’s Human Resources department to determine if a matching gift program is available to you, and to obtain the documentation necessary to initiate the match.
Gifts of Securities (stocks)
In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities. If you will be transferring stock or other securities to LEAH Schools, please notify Bret Walter at 281.341.9910 x 4001 or email@example.com.

Leave a legacy: Planned Giving
Planning your future? How do you want to leave your legacy? Consider including LEAH Schools in your estate and financial plans.
Education is a legacy and all four of our schools are a vital part of that legacy. Since 1949, many committed alumni, parents, trustees, and friends have supported their respective school to advance the Lutheran Education Association of Houston (LEAH Schools) and provide for the future. Some have made gifts during their lifetime; now they all have the option to provide for our schools through a planned gift.
Planned giving can involve making charitable gifts through your estate plans and may result in favorable financial benefits for you or your estate. LEAH Schools welcomes gifts made through different planned giving arrangements. These plans can:
- Pay you or your family income
- Entitle you to charitable income and/or gift or estate tax deductions
- Enable you to leave a legacy for LEAH Schools and support the mission of our schools (LSA, LNA, WLA, and LDA)
The most common type of planned gift is a bequest in your will or trust. We accept many types of planned gifts and assets including cash, securities, real estate, retirement plans, life insurance policies, and others. If you have decided to include LEAH Schools in your estate plans, please let us know. We would like to thank you for your generosity, make sure the purpose of your gift is understood by us, and include you as a member of the LEAH Schools Legacy Society.
