Ways to Give
Personal checks or VISA/MasterCard/American Express credit card payments are accepted. Such gifts entitle donors to a charitable income tax deduction subject to IRS regulations. All checks should be made payable to Schools of the Sacred Heart and mailed to:
Schools of the Sacred Heart
ATTN: Advancement Office
San Francisco, CA 94115
Donations may also be made here.
Stock & Securities
Making a gift of securities is both simple and tax efficient. Gifts of appreciated stock may allow a donor to avoid a capital gains tax in addition to receiving a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock. To initiate a gift of stock, we ask that you follow the instructions on the Stock Transfer Form. Please send a copy of the completed form to the Advancement Office when the transfer is made with your broker via email firstname.lastname@example.org or fax (415) 931-0201.
Donors who wish to contribute but do not wish to make an immediate payment may make a pledge. A pledge is a promise to make a specified payment within the campaign period. All pledges must be paid in full by May 31st. Pledges can be made by mail or e-mail. Pledge reminder letters will be mailed annually or at the times requested in your pledge.
You can pledge here.
Convent & Stuart Hall accepts gifts-in-kind if they can be used in support of the mission of the schools. Such gifts might take the form of inventory given through businesses owned by donors. Gift-In-Kind Donation Form.
A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage or vacant lot may have appreciated in value through the years so that its sale would mean a sizable capital gains tax. By making a year-end gift of this property instead, a donor would avoid the capital gains tax and, at the same time, receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the property.
Does your employer match gifts? Many companies have a matching gift program which can double and, in some cases, triple the value of your gift. Please check with your company's Human Resources Department. The matching gift must be initiated by you once you have contributed to Convent & Stuart Hall. When we receive the paperwork from the company, we can verify that your gift was made and complete the necessary documentation.
Memorial and Honorary Gifts
Memorial or honorary gifts can be made in honor of a loved one or in tribute to a special occasion. Gift acknowledgements will be sent to the family or whomever you choose. All gifts are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged in the Annual Report.
