If you prefer to make a donation over a period of time, we are happy to work with you to determine a schedule. We ask that Annual Fund pledges are fulfilled by June 30. Campaign pledges can be paid over multiple years.
Stocks and Securities
There can be significant tax advantages to donating appreciated stock rather than cash to a non-profit organization. Most donors can deduct the full fair market value of the appreciated stock without paying capital gains tax. Please discuss with your tax advisor and contact us for stock transferring instructions.
Planned giving vehicles such as gift annuities or remainder trusts can provide substantial tax benefits for donors, while generating income for Saint Mark’s. Some donors also choose to include the school in their estate plans through a bequest or name the school a beneficiary of a life insurance policy or retirement account. Donors who make planned gifts to the school are invited to join the Lions’ Society.
Matching gift programs provide a wonderful opportunity to increase your contribution to Saint Mark’s School, sometimes doubling or tripling it. Please check directly with your company’s HR department to see if your employer will match your donation. For recognition purposes, matching gifts are credited to the donor.
Saint Mark’s welcomes non-monetary gifts, such as equipment, materials, and supplies that provide relief to the operating budget or align with current priorities. Please contact us if you are interested in making an in-kind donation.
