Methods of Giving

GIFTS OF STOCK OR SECURITIES

If you contribute appreciated securities to Ravenscroft, you may receive a twofold income tax benefit: a charitable deduction for the present fair market value and avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation. For instructions about how to make your gift, click here.

LEGACY GIVING

Since our founding, individuals dedicated to our long-term success have set up planned gifts for the benefit of our students, teachers and programs. Learn More. 

Recurring Gifts

Recurring gifts are an easy way to make a big impact that works for your budget and schedule. Visit our Online Giving form to make your gift. Signing up for a recurring gift is a great way to help Ravenscroft by providing steady, reliable funding for students and faculty through a monthly, weekly, quarterly or annual gift to the School. 

Donor Advised Fund

Ravenscroft welcomes donors to recommend grants from their Donor Advised Funds, also know as a DAF. A donor advised fund is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Ravenscroft directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).

CASH OR CREDIT CARDS

Donors may make gifts by cash, check or credit card. You can make your donation or pledge online using our secure Online Giving form.


 

If you would like to make a pledge or arrange for automatic monthly charges to your credit card, please contact Jennifer Gerber.

The Family of Funds supports Ravenscroft School’s operating budget. The Board of Trustees retains the discretion to use the funds to support the school’s general operations should contributions received for a particular fund exceed the expenditure limits approved by the Board for a particular fund.
