Types of Gifts

Gifts of Cash:

An outright cash gift or payments on a multi-year pledge can be made by check or by donating online with a credit card. This provides the donor with an income tax charitable deduction in the year each gift or pledge installment is paid.

Endowed Funds:

Generous donors can create endowed funds to provide support for a specific school program in perpetuity. The School invests the principal, and the income is used to provide the support. Every $25,000 in endowment generates $1,000 annually.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities:

A gift of stock may provide a significant tax advantage for a donor. Stocks that have greatly increased in value are excellent gifts to make to The John Crosland School. The School realizes the full market value of the stock, and the donor receives a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock.

Matching Gifts:

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. All you need to do is include your company’s matching gift form with your donation. Recent matching gift companies include: Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Microsoft, Visa, and US Bancorp.

Gifts of Real Estate:

By gifting a property to The John Crosland School, the owner avoids paying capital gains taxes, yet receives a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property (residence, vacation home, or undeveloped piece of land).
