There are different ways to support De LaSalle Academy both today and in the years to come via Planned Giving.
Depending on your age, a Planned Gift may also be able to provide you with significant income today in exchange for your future gift to the school.
Stocks, Securities & Gifts of Property
Donors can use their own broker/agent or the diocesan agent to transfer and sell stock, or donate property to benefit De LaSalle Academy.
If the stock has been held long-term (over one year), the donor does not have to pay capital gains tax and is allowed a tax deduction for the full value of the stock. However, the stock must first be transferred to the school before being liquidated. Families or individuals interested in making a gift of real estate or personal property. This can be in the form of a house or land.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Each company handles its matching gift program differently.
In most instances the donor initiates the matching gift from his or her company by requesting a form from the Human Resource Department. The donor then fills out the form and sends it with each installment payment of his or her pledge. You may be able to increase the value of your gift by participating in a matching gift program provided through your employer or board membership. Companies may match charitable contributions at 1:1, 2:1 and sometimes as high as a 3:1 ratio on outright or deferred gifts. Your employer’s Human Resource Department can provide information and forms for you to take advantage of this unique leveraging opportunity.
A great fundraiser once said, “Money is simply trapped energy. The key is to show donors that their energy will create a better world for all of us.”
We’re confident that De LaSalle’s mission will have ripple effects through time, and that we are changing the lives that will one day change the world.
