Ways to Give

Saint Hilary School welcomes and appreciates financial support from many sources and in many ways:

Gifts

Donations may be given in a one-time gift. Checks, credit card or wire transfers may be used to facilitate the gift.  Recurring payments via credit card or ACH are acceptable.

Matching Gifts 

Corporate matching gifts can double or even triple your gift.  Many businesses offer these programs for their employees. Please contact your Human Resources department to obtain your employers guidelines instructions on how to process a match.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of publicly traded securities are easy to facilitate and offer two-fold savings.  Donors pay no capital gains on the increased value of the appreciated stock and receive an income tax deduction for the full market value at the time of the gift. 

Family Gifts

Grandparents and extended family members may also give Saint Hilary in the ways described above. Some families choose to bundle their gifts into a single family gift in order to make a stretch goal or give individually. 

Memorial and Honorary Tribute Gifts

 A memorial gift to Saint Hilary School can honor a person during his/her lifetime or commemorate a significant event, like Confirmation, or Graduation.
