A gift of appreciated securities can bring the donor greater tax savings than a gift of cash. If you donate stock that you have held for more than a year, you will receive a tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities on the date The Montessori School receives the stock. You are not required to pay a capital gains tax on the appreciation. Click here for a Stock Donation Form.
A bequest is donation of cash, personal property or real estate provided in a donor’s will to a non-profit institution. It is a gift that can truly be made by almost everybody, and involves no immediate loss of capital or income. Tax benefits minimize the ultimate cost to one’s heirs. Consult your attorney for assistance with your philanthropic plans.
These donations are not monetary contributions, and may consist of furnishings, art, computers, musical instruments, books, etc. TMS will provide a gift receipt as an acknowledgment of the contribution. The Montessori School accepts gifts-in-kind at its own discretion. Please contact the Development Office prior to donating.
