Ways to Give

The Class of 1932 Shown Above

Annual Giving

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.

 

Matching Gifts

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.

 

Planned Giving

A popular and enduring 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 by helping sustain the oldest all-girls Catholic school in New Jersey.

Another thoughtful way to support us is by designating The Academy on a beneficiary form on a retirement account, investment account or life insurance policy.

 

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, graduation, wedding, or other milestone.

 

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.

 

Host an Event

Events can be hosted to benefit the Academy of Saint Elizabeth. Your imagination is the limit!

 

Event Sponsorships

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.

 

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 office, donating a special skill, such as writing or photography to a dedicated project or signing up for the Alumnae Association.
