Gifts in-kind are generally defined as non-cash donations of equipment or supplies that have been purchased by the donor and given to the school to meet a specific purpose or need such as gift cards, books, equipment, software, licenses, food, supplies and furnishings.
Using publicly-traded stock to make a gift to Regis Jesuit can be a tax-wise method of giving, especially if the stock has appreciated in value since you acquired it. Giving appreciated stock saves you tax dollars in two ways:
First, you will receive an income-tax deduction for the current value of the stock. This value is the average of the high and low trading price on the transfer date.
Second, you avoid paying the tax on the capital gain of the stock. So that we can be sure to accurately match the donation to you, please alert an Advancement team member that you have made a gift of stock.
Donors who are at least 70½ years of age or older may transfer up to $100,000 from an IRA directly to a qualifying charity such as Regis Jesuit High School. These otherwise taxable distributions can satisfy your annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) and exclude these funds from your taxable income.
A donor-advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Regis Jesuit High School and other charities. You transfer cash or other assets to a tax-exempt sponsoring organization such as a public foundation. You can then recommend-but not direct-how much and how often money is granted. In return, you qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction at the time you contribute to the account.
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest! The impact of your gift may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
When you include Regis Jesuit in your will or estate plan, you become a member of the St. John Francis Regis Legacy Society, which recognizes your important contribution and demonstrates your commitment to the mission of Regis Jesuit.
Throughout the year, Advancement hosts a variety of events for our alumni, parents, faculty, staff and companions to build community, foster meaningful engagement and promote a culture of philanthropy that advances the mission of Regis Jesuit.
