Giving to Guardian Angels

Contact Shannon Kapp, Special Project Assistant to the Principal at 624-3141 ext. 240 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contributions may be made in the following ways:
Outright Gifts:Most gifts are made through outright contributions and are the most popular way to show support for the school. The most common outright gifts come in the form of cash, check, money order, securities, real estate and/or personal property. Your gift is deductible in the year of the gift.
Matching Gifts: Maximize the impact of your gift to Guardian Angels School with a matching gift. Many companies sponsor programs enabling their employees and retirees to double or triple their personal contributions to education. The process is not complicated. If you are unsure if your employer matches contributions, contact the GA business office or inquire at your place of employment about matching gift options. Your human resources department should have a matching gift form for you to fill out and forward to Guardian Angels School. Some companies use electronic filing eliminating the need for a matching gift form.
Securities and Stocks: Appreciated securities are an excellent asset to use in making a charitable gift. You can maximize tax savings by receiving an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the appreciated securities, and you may avoid capital gains tax. Your broker can electronically transfer stock directly to Guardian Angels School.
Bequest: Bequests are planned gifts where a donor may designate a contribution to benefit Guardian Angels School by including the school in their will. You may arrange for a cash gift or assets gift or property donation. Bequests may be made for a specific amount, a percentage of your estate, or even a residual portion.
