How may I give a cash gift?
Cash gifts are an easy way to give. Cash gifts of any size can have an immediate impact on the Day School. The limit on fully deductible cash gifts is a maximum of 50% of your adjusted gross income. Anything more can usually be carried forward and deducted over a maximum of five subsequent years. Please make checks payable to St. Patrick's Episcopal Day School.

What are Gifts of Appreciated Securities?
Gifts of stock, bonds, treasuries, and mutual funds that have increased in value are a win-win opportunity for you and the Day School under current tax laws. You avoid paying capital gains on the increased value of the stock and you receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock when the gift is made. In order to do this, your stock generally must have been held long-term (more than one year). Gifts of appreciated securities are fully deductible up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income. Anything more can usually be carried forward and deducted over a maximum of five subsequent years. If you plan to make a stock gift, please call the Development Office at 202.342.7004 or FAX 202.342.7005.

How can I participate in Matching Gifts?
Many companies will match the contributions that employees (some match retired employees as well) make to nonprofit organizations such as St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School. Under a corporate matching gift program, gifts made by a company's eligible employee or employee's spouse are matched with company or corporate foundation funds—sometimes doubling or tripling the initial gift. To initiate a matching gift, ask your personnel or human relations office for the company's matching gift form and send it along with your donation to the Day School. Please note that matching gifts do not increase your charitable deduction but does count towards our giving levels.
