Ways to Give
You may choose to support Holy Ghost Prep through a number of giving options:
Gifts of cash
Gifts of Securities
- Corporate Matching Gifts
- Gifts of Property
- Planned Giving
The most common forms of giving, outright gifts of cash via check or credit card, enable HGP to meet its financial obligations for academic initiatives and programs. If you itemize your taxes, you may claim a federal income tax charitable deduction for the total amount of your gift, up to 50 percent of your adjusted gross income. Unused deductions may be carried over for up to five additional years. I would like to make a gift by clicking here.
You may choose to make a single-year or multi-year annual or capital campaign pledge with a payment schedule of your choosing. We will send you periodic pledge reminders, according to a schedule determined by you, as well as reports of your pledge status. Holy Ghost’s fiscal year is July 1 to June 30.
Securities: Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Options
Gifts of securities, bonds and mutual funds that have appreciated in value provide excellent tax advantages for donors. For appreciated securities held longer than one year, you may deduct the full fair market value of your gift, up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Unused deductions may be carried over for up to five additional years, and you pay no capital gains tax. HGP will provide assistance in managing these transactions efficiently.
Hundreds of corporations match the charitable contributions made by their employees, directors, employee's spouses, or retirees. You may double or even triple your campaign gift by checking with your company's Human Resources Office to see if they participate in a matching gift program. If they do, simply request and complete your company's matching gift form and include it with your gift to the School.
Gifts of Property
Almost any form of property -- real estate, personal property, insurance policies and business interests -- can provide a suitable charitable gift. If you are considering a gift of property, please consult your attorney, accountant, financial advisor and the School to ensure that the gift will meet your intention to support Holy Ghost, in addition to your financial interests.
Planned giving opportunities are numerous and can be developed in conjunction with the School to benefit all parties involved. Opportunities include a variety of bequests, several charitable trusts and annuities, and gifts of appreciated securities, real estate and other assets.
