Ways to help St. Paul School
St. Paul School is blessed by the generosity of so many benefactors, alumni, school families, parishioners, and friends who have invested in the future of our students, teachers, and school by donating a financial gift. These gifts help to support our programs (academic, religious, fine arts, and athletics), our technology needs and upgrades, and our tuition assistance fund.

Cash or check donations will be put to immediate use. We can also now accept credit card donations through the PayPal button on our homepage.

Stock that has increased in value is a popular asset used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of one year.
Retirement Plan Assets
To maximize the value of a retirement account, you may consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.
Likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated asset, Savings Bonds that may have stopped growing can be put to good use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support a cause you care about.
Using real estate, such as your home, farm or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.
Closely Held Stock
A donation of your closely held stock is a great way for you to make a sizable charitable contribution while realizing valuable tax benefits.
Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support the mission of St. Paul School. By naming St. Paul School the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.
To make a charitable gift by will, it’s best to meet with your attorney to discuss and update your will. Tell him/her exactly what you want to do and to whom you wish to make a gift.
