Donor Advised Funds
There are many benefits to utilizing a donor-advised fund.
You can fund it by irrevocably contributing assets such as cash or appreciated stock, and receive an immediate tax deduction.
There are two important ways that you can support Francis Parker School by utilizing a donor-advised fund: recommending grants or through a beneficiary designation.
During your lifetime, you may make grant recommendations from your donor-advised fund to support Parker.
When making a grant recommendation, please reference Francis Parker School's tax ID number: 95-1696720.
We also ask that you clearly designate your gift to one of Parker's funds, such as Current-Use Professional Development and Salaries (Day of Giving); Current-Use Financial Assistance (Gala); or General Endownment.
Additionally, you may speak with the custodian of your fund to designate the School as a beneficiary of all or part of the fund’s assets, so that once the fund no longer has an advisor, these assets will be transferred to the School to further our mission.
Please contact the Advancement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858-569-7900 for wire transfer instructions.
Parker gratefully accepts cryptocurrency donations with a gift value greater than or equal to $10,000 (USD). Please contact the Advancement Office at email@example.com or call 858-569-7900 for donation instructions.
A gift of your real property (such as your home, vacation property, vacant land, farmland or ranch or commercial property) can make a great gift to the School. If you own appreciated real property, you can avoid paying capital gains tax and receive a charitable income tax deduction by making a gift to us.
If you are interested in making a gift of real property or mortgaged property, please contact the Advancement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 858-569-7900.
Many employers offer a matching gift program to eligible employees. If you or your spouse works for a matching gift company, your gift to Parker may be doubled or tripled simply by completing a form that is available from your employer.
As a donor, you will be credited with the total contribution, including your corporate match. Not only does the size of your gift increase, but you will be recognized in the giving category of the combined donation amount (your gift and your company’s gift).
For questions about submitting your matching gift, please email email@example.com.
