WAYS TO GIVE
There are many ways to make a gift to Marymount. Outright gifts of
cash are fully tax deductible for those who itemize and provide the most
convenient form of giving. Gifts of securities, real estate, and assets
also provide tax savings to the donor and are extremely beneficial to
Marymount of Santa Barbara. For more information please contact the
Development department, at 805-569-1811, ext. 234.
Often your gift to Marymount can be doubled or tripled by matching funds
from your employer. Please contact your employer’s Human Resource
Department for more information.
Paying by credit card provides several potential benefits including
paying over a period of time and obtaining frequent flyer mileage. We
accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
When making a gift of appreciated securities, you may receive a
charitable deduction for the market value of the gift and save the
capital gains tax which would otherwise be payable upon the sale of the
assets. To receive these benefits, securities must be transferred to
Marymount prior to sale. Please the Development Office for transmittal
instructions and assistance.
Gifts-in-kind are another effective way to make your contribution to
Marymount. Examples include products or services from your business,
classroom materials, silent or live auction items, etc.
We invite you to be a part of Marymount’s strong foundation by
purchasing an engraved Battistone Hall brick. Whether to commemorate a
Marymount graduate, honor a student, acknowledge a teacher, or just
further strengthen Marymount’s academic excellence, your support of $250
to purchase a brick will leave a lasting impression and serve as a
permanent reminder to generations to come of the important role
Marymount plays in your family.
Planned giving is another option. Include Marymount in your will and
reduce estate taxes; establish a charitable remainder trust or annuity;
purchase a life insurance policy naming Marymount as the beneficiary; or
donate a home or other real estate to the school.
