Ways of Giving
There are several types of gifts that can be made to Villa Maria Academy. Gifts can be given to: Annual Fund, Capital Campaign, and special events throughout the year.
Gifts of Cash
Most gifts to Villa Maria Academy are cash contributions, allowing donors to receive full tax benefits if they itemize deductions. Checks and online donations by credit card are also accepted.
Commitments made as pledges and can be paid over a multi-year period. Payments are arranged to suit the convenience of the donor and to maximize tax advantages.
Gifts of Securities
A gift of appreciated securities, either publicly traded or from a private company, may provide greater tax advantages than gifts of cash. The donor can deduct the current fair-market value as a charitable gift. Please consult your tax advisor for specific information.
Gifts and Services In-Kind
