Ways of Giving

Outright Gifts

Outright gifts can include cash, appreciated property (stock, real estate) or tangible personal property/equipment. Cash gifts usually are deductible; check with your tax advisor.

Gifts of Securities/Real Estate

Gifts of stock may be transferred to the Academy, and real property, either in entirety or in part, may be deeded to the school. For information on these transactions which may provide tax advantages, contact Chief Financial Officer John Donohoe.

Gifts of Trust With Life-Long Income

You may transfer money, securities or other property in trust to the Academy and receive income for yourself (and another) for life. You may receive immediate tax benefits and ultimately the Academy will receive the trust property.

Bequests

In writing your will or living trust, you may specify that you would like a portion of your estate to benefit the Academy.

Gifts of Insurance

A donor unable to make a large gift from currently available funds may wish to make a pledge by purchasing a new whole life insurance policy naming the Academy as the recipient or by transferring ownership of an existing policy to the Academy.

Matching Gifts

Most outright gifts from a donor's present or past employment or board membership qualify for matching gifts from contributing employers. This is a tremendous benefit that can double, sometimes even triple, your gift to the Academy. Click here to see a list of matching-gift companies.

Honorary and Memorial Gifts

An honorary gift to the Academy may honor a person during his or her lifetime or commemorate some significant event. A memorial gift can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided a loved one’s life. Families of those honored will be notified of the donor’s gift. Gifts to the Academy may be designated for the Annual Fund, the Endowment Fund, Named Endowed Scholarships or to retire the Capital Campaign and Projects debt. Gifts may be pledged for payment within five years.
