Ways of Giving

Gifts to Ross School can be made in a variety of ways that offer personal advantages, including income tax charitable deductions, reduction in capital gains taxes, and estate tax benefits.


GIFTS OF CASH
You may make a gift by check or credit card. If more convenient, you may make a pledge of monthly installments, due in full by June 30, the end of our fiscal year.

ONLINE AUCTION  NEW!
Bid on a rotating selection of luxury items to the benefit of both you and Ross School.

MATCHING GIFTS
Many businesses and corporations will match gifts made by their employees, retirees and families to independent schools. Please complete a matching gift form from your organization and enclose it with your donation.

REAL ESTATE, ART & ANTIQUES, AND OTHER GIFTS-IN-KIND
Gifts-in-kind of tangible items such as works of art, equipment, books, furniture, antiques, real estate and similar non-monetary contributions may result in a tax deduction for the donor, with the amount of the deduction determined by whether or not the gift meets the “related use” test.

DESIGNATED GIFTS
Restricted gift opportunities are available for any number of programs, including scholarships, athletics, arts and theater, and Innovation Lab @Ross.

DEFERRED GIFTS
Gifts of real estate and many other properties of value often offer tax benefits similar to gifts of securities: no capital gains tax plus deductibility at fair market value.

SECURITIES
Gifts of common stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other appreciated securities provide an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value at the date of transfer and, in most cases, eliminate capital gains taxes.

LIFE INSURANCE
Naming Ross as both beneficiary and irrevocable owner of a Life Insurance policy is a convenient and cost effective way of making a substantial gift with possible tax advantages.

PLANNED GIVING
There are numerous Planned Giving options that give unique tax opportunities and benefit Ross for the long-term. Estate planning and charitable trusts are two examples that offer you current tax deductions.
For additional questions or to discuss ways of giving, please contact the Development Office at 631-907-5500 or email development@ross.org.
