End of Year Giving
The end of the year brings opportunities for reflecting on the blessings of the past months – reflections that often translate into a desire to share those blessings. Gifts to educational institutions provide immediate benefits while helping to create a legacy of strong, moral young leaders for our society. Your donation can combine charitable and financial objectives, achieving your philanthropic goals while providing tax benefits. Your attorney or tax consultant can advise on a plan that best meets your personal needs. Gift options include:
- Cash – Gifts of check, credit card or cash in single gifts or a pledge commitment provide simple, direct means to contribute.
- Investment Securities – Gifts of securities (stocks, bonds, etc.) owned a year or more can provide an opportunity for charitable tax deduction.
- "Ordinary Income" Property – Gifts of appreciated property can provide tax advantages. Examples include inventory and stock that does not generate capital gains tax treatment.
- Personal Property – An appreciated asset, sold for less than its current value to the School, gives the School the benefit of the full market value, while providing opportunity for a tax deduction.
Special philanthropic strategies can increase the financial value and meaningfulness of your gift. Please consider in your planning.
