Support Overview

We the people of New Roads democratize opportunity — opportunity that’s limitless. We do that by raising funds that expand possibilities for everyone: training for faculty, rejuvenation of facilities, and of course financial aid. In seeking these resources, we do so not just for the sake of acquiring more or better or newer, but in order to better fulfill our educational promise to every student in our care.

Generosity of spirit underpins our core commitments to authentic diversity and to the pursuit of justice, equity, and opportunity. By supporting our community with philanthropy and volunteerism, we embody these values for our children. We ask everyone to make a gift that is meaningful to their family — a gift that signals your commitment to making New Roads as good as it can be for your child and for everyone.

Ways to give

  • Pledges & 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, 2020.
  • 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!
