WAYS TO GIVE
Gifts of Securities: Gifts of Stock can provide great tax benefits. Please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement with questions on completing a transfer to St. Jean Baptiste High School.
Matching Gifts: Many employers match charitable donations made by their employees. Please check with your HR Department to inquire whether your company has a Matching Gifts Program.
Planned Giving: A planned gift is a wonderful long-term way to continue your support. These gifts can be made through various methods such as: Charitable Bequests (naming FHA in your will), Charitable Gift Annuities, IRA and other Retirement Plan Gifts, Charitable Remainder Trust and Lead Trust and Gifts of Life Insurance. See the Planned GIving page for more info: https://www.fontbonne.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=416281&type=d&pREC_ID=1754638
Life Insurance: For a life insurance gift to be tax deductible, Fontbonne must be the owner and beneficiary. Policies may be new, have premiums remaining to be paid, or be a fully paid policy.
Donor-Advised Funds: If you have established a Donor-Advised Fund through another organization (e.g., The New York Community Trust, Fidelity Charitable Gift Fund, etc.) you may recommend the award of a grant to Fontbonne Hall Academy. Please check the guidelines pertaining to your fund.
Gifts of Intellectual Property: Gifts of intellectual property such as copyrights, patents, royalties, licenses, and technical data are welcome. The tax and legal provisions that govern these gifts vary according to the type of property.
Tribute Gifts: A gift made in memory of or in honor of someone special is a great way to acknowledge that person.
In-Kind Gifts: We also accept non-cash gifts. Almost any form of property, such as works of art, antiques, real estate and other personal items can be a suitable charitable gift. In many cases, the full appraised value of the property on the date of the gift will be credited to Fontbonne. Please contact our Office of Institutional Advancement for more information. 718-748-2244
