Cornerstone Lutheran High School is driven to serve the students and families in the Chippewa Valley.
We are committed to years of growth and outreach to those who desire a Christian education and a partnership with their area Lutheran high school.
This growth will take years of responsible planning and hard work. We want you to take the journey with us.
Here is how you can be a part of the legacy of Cornerstone:
Estate planning through your will, living trust, or insurance policy is a God-pleasing example of love for those who are important to you even after the Lord has taken you home. This is an easy way to make a gift without modifying your will. Cornerstone can help you place your gift into a charitable fund of your choosing, so that your wishes are continued to further the ministry, share the gospel message and leave a legacy that truly makes a difference.
Whether your wishes consist of bequests, wills, trusts, charitable gift annuities, life insurance, etc., Cornerstone can help you so that your wishes are in place:
- Bequest by will: Gifts or portion of your estate can be designated to Cornerstone Lutheran High School and, in some cases, receive a substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes.
- Charitable Remainder Trust: Cash, securities, or property can be placed in a trust that pays annual income to you (or another named beneficiary) for life. After the Lord takes you home, the remainder of the trust transfers to Cornerstone Lutheran High School. Income tax benefits are available the year you establish your trust.
- Charitable Lead Trust: Cash, securities, or property can be placed into a trust that pays a fixed amount to the Cornerstone Lutheran High School for the number of years you select. Once this period ends, the assets held by the trust are transferred to the beneficiaries you wish. In some cases, substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes are available.
- Retirement Funds, IRAs, and Life Insurance Policies: Cornerstone Lutheran High School can be made a full or partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy or retirement account. This is an easy way to make a legacy gift, to a charitable fund of your choosing, without modifying your will.
We thank the Lord for our Concrete Partners who have faithfully pledged their gifts weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly for life or until they notify us differently. These gifts are given to the operating fund, capital/debt reduction, or student assistance.

Aggregate/Matching Gift Partners
Many companies and employers offer a matching gift program for their employees. View a list of companies who have matching gifts programs. If your employer is not on the list, they may still have a matching gifts program – just ask!
We often have special anonymous donors who will give a larger gift to stimulate many new gifts from other supporters. Ask us if such a program is currently in place.
You can be a matching gift partner! If the Lord has blessed you with considerable financial resources, you can make a gift that will inspire others to give what they are able. Every dollar raised up to a specific amount by a certain time can be doubled by your generosity. Reach out to us at for more information.
