Gifts of Stock
If you contribute appreciated securities to Dutchess Day School, you receive a two-fold income tax benefit: a charitable deduction for the present fair market value and no capital gains tax on the appreciation. Please contact Eileen Shaw, Interim Director of Development, in advance of your transfer, and include the type of stock and number of shares you are transferring.
Talk with your employer about their matching gift program. They may be able to help you double or triple the amount of your contribution!
Honorary and Memorial Gifts
Gifts made in honor or memory of a student, faculty member, coach or friend are gratefully accepted.
Gifts of Real Estate
Donating property to Dutchess Day School allows you to avoid tax on the appreciation in value and receive a current charitable deduction on your income taxes.
Remembering Dutchess Day School in your will through a charitable bequest reduces the amount of your estate that is subject to estate tax.
