Additional Gift Opportunities
Tuition Angel Fund
This Fund provides financial aid to those families who are in need of tuition assistance. Contributions to the fund are received from grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, businesses, and others. The contributions can be restricted to a specific child or family. Often, donations are received from families who lose a family member and who designate our fund for memorials.
Gifts in Kind
Non-cash gifts of property such as computers, books, scientific equipment, and art materials also make important gifts. The fair market value of such items normally is deductible for income tax purposes. A formal appraisal is required by the IRS for gifts in kind valued at over $5,000.00. Gifts of appreciated stock allow for very favorable tax treatment for donors.
A Library book is a very special way to remember someone, and to share that memory with others. A memorial bookplate is placed on the inside cover of the book you purchase in recognition of the memorial. Donations of books often are made to mark special events, including birthdays and graduations.
Capital gifts are gifts specifically restricted (by the donor) for capital needs of the school, including maintenance and construction projects.
Matching Gift Funds
Many employers will math the charitable giving of their employees. This is a way to double and perhaps triple your gift to Saint George School. Please check with your employer for a Matching Gift form.
Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds
Securities are an excellent way to give a gift to Saint George School. Please contact your broker for more details.
