Ways to Give
Class of 1932 Shown Above
An annual gift is just that: Your investment, a sustaining gift made every year. As an annual giver, at any level, you sustain us, every day, every year. It is a measure of the investment and confidence you have in the work that we are doing.
A popular and enduring planned gift is a simple charitable bequest, which is a gift made through your will. Bequests are popular because they give you the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.
Memorials & Tributes
Contributions made in recognition of important life events; a gift in memory of a family member or dear friend, or in honor of a birthday, wedding, or other milestone.
By sponsoring an event you help defer the costs that are incurred to the organization by various expenses which helps add to the success of the fundraiser.
Many companies have programs through which they will "match" the charitable contributions made by their employees. Often these matches are dollar for dollar, or more. Through corporate gift matching, your employer or your spouse/partner's employer can multiply your gift to Academy of Saint Elizabeth, making it go further. Please inquire with your Human Resources Department.
Dedicate a Special Day
Meaningful days in your life can be made even more memorable by dedicating them to making a difference in the life of the future of the Academy. On your birthday, consider asking friends and relatives to make a donation to Academy of Saint Elizabeth in lieu of a personal gift; or rather than investing money on a favor for your wedding or bridal or baby shower, think about making a donation to The Academy in honor of your event.
Donate Your Time - Volunteer
The Academy of Saint Elizabeth offers many opportunities for individuals to get involved by donating their time. Volunteers are needed in many areas including administrative support in our offices, donating a special skill, such as writing or photography or videography to a dedicated project.
Gifts of Stocks & Securities
A gift of appreciated securities is a two-fold benefit to making a gift of this nature: you receive a charitable deduction for the current fair market value, and you do not pay personal capital gains taxes on the appreciation.
