ways to give

Like other independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the costs associated with keeping this community of learners thriving, stable and able to grow and mature. Our goals are established by the Board of Trustees in coordination with the Development Stewardship Committee. Fundraising activities account for approximately 13% of New Roads School’s operating budget.

New Roads School is a charitable organization that is tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code so your contributions are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

PLEDGES AND PAYMENT PLANS
• Make a pledge. Commit to your gift today and have the flexibility you need to make your payments throughout the year.
• All Annual Giving pledge payments must be received by June 30, 2013.

GIFTS OF APPRECIATED SECURITIES
• Gifts of appreciated securities, such as stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares, are a great way to increase the size of your gift to New Roads. Why? Because you get to take the full current value of your gift as a charitable tax deduction (rather than your lower purchase price). This saves you money on taxes and allows you to give New Roads a gift that costs you less than gifting the equivalent amount in cash. Please contact your tax professional to discuss your options and then call the Development Office at 310-828-5582.

EMPLOYER MATCHING GIFTS
• Most large companies will match charitable contributions made by their employees, often dollar for dollar. Simply ask your office supervisor or human resources person for a matching gift form and return it to us with your contribution. What a great way to double or even triple the amount of your gift to New Roads School.

TRIBUTES
• Tributes are a wonderful way to send a thank you, acknowledge a special occasion or send a note of sympathy (in Honor; in Memory)
