Ways to Give

List of 5 items.

  • 1. Cash

    Most donors find that a personal check is the easiest way to make a gift. These donations are fully tax deductible and have an immediate impact upon the program for which the funds are allocated.
  • 2. Credit Card

    Donors may contribute through a credit card gift.
  • 3. Pledge

    Pledge gifts are encouraged for the Scholastica Fund and for capital contributions. The Scholastica Fund pledges are payable to the Academy before June 30 of any given fiscal year. Capital pledges are payable over 3 - 5 years and can be used to fund building and campus improvements, and to assist the school in planning for the future. Pledges must be made in writing.
  • 4. Stock or Other Securities

    Some donors have stocks that have appreciated over time and would rather donate these in lieu of cash to the Academy. These gifts are unique in that the donor can take a federal tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the stock, regardless of how much the donor paid for the stock; no capital gains taxes apply.
  • 5. Planned Gifts

    A number of planned gift vehicles exist for donors to make gifts to a charity over time. Some of these include gifts of life insurance, bequests, remainder trusts and other annuities. Many specific and beneficial tax advantages can be gained through these gifts.
