There are several methods of making charitable gifts to Tandem Friends School, each of which presents certain advantages, depending on the donor's personal circumstances. The following are several options for your consideration:
Gifts of Cash by Checks and Credit CardsCash donations can be made by check or credit card. Click here to give now.
PledgesPledges are welcome; all balances are due on or before June 30. Click here to make a pledge. Click on "Pledge to Give."Recurring Gifts
Monthly or quarterly gifts can be set up using the online form. Recurring gifts allow you to have a large impact with gifts that are more budget-friendly for you and provide reliable income for Tandem Friends.
With matching gifts you can sometimes double or even triple your gift! Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please contact your company's Personnel Director or Matching Gift Coordinator.
Gifts of Appreciated Securities
A gift of appreciated stock (securities) may allow you to make a larger gift than you thought possible. If your securities have appreciated in value, you have the opportunity to avoid the capital gains tax that otherwise would apply to that appreciation if the securities were sold. You also may be eligible for an income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities. With the tax savings, the “cost” of your gift to Tandem Friends may be much less than the actual value of the gift you are able to make—which may make this form of giving all the more appealing.
Please contact Tracy Proctor, Director of Institutional Advancement, for stock transfer details.
