Ways to Give

Cash, Check or Credit Card
For income tax purposes, your cash gift is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. Gifts may be made by cash, check or credit card. Village School accepts Visa, MasterCard and American Express. Credit card gifts can be made online at https://www.village-school.org/giving/donate or by contacting Alison McKee at (310) 459-8411 ext. 603.

Matching Gifts
Many corporations encourage philanthropy by matching employee donations. Matching gifts can double or triple the amount of your gift. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please contact the Advancement Office.

Securities
You may achieve significant tax savings by making your gift via stocks or other capital assets. If you have stocks that have appreciated, your charitable deduction may be based on the full market value on the date of the transfer. If you have stocks that have decreased in value, you may be able to take a deductible loss when you sell the stocks and donate the proceeds.
If donors would like to donate appreciated securities to the school, via transfer of stock to the school’s brokerage account, please contact Manuel Pardo, Director of Finance and Operations, at mpardo@village-school.org or at 310- 459-8411 ext. 601 for instructions.

Planned Giving
Donors may wish to consider giving through such means as life insurance, bequests or charitable trusts. Planned giving may be a way to reduce estate and inheritance taxes. We encourage you to speak with your financial planner when considering any type of planned gift.
