Ways to Give
All gifts are vital to the support of Saint Mary’s College High School’s annual, capital, and endowment needs. There are a variety of ways to contribute so that each investor may tailor his or her giving to meet individual preferences while meeting the needs of our students.
Gifts of Cash
Most donors find that online giving is the easiest way to make a gift. Other donors prefer to make their gift by check. Donations to Saint Mary’s are fully tax-deductible and have an impact on the students, school programs, and the 44% of families on tuition assistance .
If you are making your gift by check, please make the check payable to Saint Mary’s College High School and mailed to:
Attention: Advancement Office
Saint Mary’s College High School
1294 Albina Avenue
Berkeley, CA 94706
If you would like to make a gift through a Charitable Giving Fund, please note that Saint Mary’s tax ID number is 68-0331088
A matching gift program is a corporate sponsored benefit that can double or even triple an employee’s gift to Saint Mary’s by matching his or her contribution. Check with your human resources office to find out if your company has a matching gift program. If your gift qualifies, please obtain a matching gift form from your employer to send along with your contribution. For your convenience, Saint Mary’s tax ID number is 68-033108
Bequests & Planned Gifts
Remember Saint Mary’s College High School in your will or trust and create a lasting legacy at the school. Bequests may include an estate, a percentage of an estate or a specific cash amount. If you have already included Saint Mary’s in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may honor you as a Saint Mary’s Legacy member.
Stocks, Securities and Other Real Property
Gifts of securities or other real property provide immediate support to the school. Donors receive tax deductions based on the fair market value of the property at the time of the gift and avoid capital gains tax on appreciated property. For your convenience, you may download a Stock Transfer Form and please be sure to notify the Advancement Office at 510/559-6202 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Saint Mary’s gratefully recognizes gifts made in memory of or in honor of a friend, family or faculty member, or to acknowledge a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or other significant event. The names of those remembered with a memorial gift will be entered in the Brothers Intentions Book and offered in the Brothers daily prayers.
You may make a commitment to Saint Mary’s payable through installments tailored to your desired schedule. This may allow you to give more generously over a period of time than would be possible through a single contribution, thus making a greater difference to Saint Mary’s students. Please contact the Advancement Department at 510/559-6202, email@example.com for more information.
