Ways to Give

Gifts of Cash
Your tax-deductible check may be made payable to Friends School of Wilmington and mailed to:
Development Office

Stock or other Marketable Securities
A gift of appreciated securities, which you have held for one year or more, is frequently the most economical way to give. You can take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date you transfer ownership to Friends School of Wilmington, and you avoid capital gains tax. The tax advantage of this gift is lost if you instruct your broker to sell the stock and send the proceeds from the sale to Friends School of Wilmington.
Matching Gifts
We urge you to check with your human resources department to see if your employer has a matching gift program. A program such as this will increase the amount of your gift, and you will receive gift credit for the total amount of your gift and the matching gift.
Gifts Made Through Your Estate and Financial Plan

Gifts of Real Estate

Gifts of real estate may be given to Friends School of Wilmington either outright or as an asset to fund charitable trusts. Friends School of Wilmington requires that a comprehensive review of the property, including environmental assessment, be made prior to acceptance of a gift.
