Many companies offer matching gift programs that can double or triple the value of your gift to Marist.
Many companies offer programs that match charitable donations made by their employees, directors, employees’ spouses, or retirees. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of the donation, making the employer a partner in the donor’s personal philanthropy. If your employer has a matching gift program, simply obtain a matching gift form from the personnel office, fill it out, and submit it to Marist School with your contribution. Click here
to see if your company matches gifts. If you have questions about making a matching gift to Marist School, please contact Lexy Mizzell at 770-936-6483 or firstname.lastname@example.org
|Stocks and Securities|
Gifts of appreciated stocks or securities may result in significant tax benefits for the donor.
Stocks and mutual fund shares make excellent gifts for many donors to consider. When a person owns marketable securities that have a long-term gain and gifts them to Marist School, the donor may be able to take the full fair market value of the security as a charitable deduction on his or income tax return and avoid all capital gains taxes. Your financial manager and the Advancement Office can provide information and assistance.

|Gifts of Tangible Personal Property |
Further the mission of Marist School with a “gift-in-kind.”
Gifts-in-kind are accepted on a case-by-case basis, the primary criterion being that the gifts further the mission of Marist School. The school is prohibited by law to appraise the value of gifts of tangible personal property in any form. For donations of personal property over $500, the donor must complete the appropriate IRS forms for tax deduction purposes; for property having a value of $5,000 or more, the donor must obtain a qualified, independent appraisal. For additional information about making a gift-in-kind, please contact Meeghan Fortson, Director of Development, at (770) 936-2282 or email@example.com
|Gifts of Real Estate|
Gifts of real estate enable donors to leverage what is often one of their largest assets
Gifts of real estate enable donors to leverage what is often one of their largest assets. Types of property that might be given include residential, rental, vacation, business, or farm real estate. Both fractional and total interests are accepted. In an outright gift, the tax charitable deduction is based on the appraised, fair market value. Real estate may also be given with the donor retaining the right to use and maintain the property during his or her lifetime. In a retained life estate, the tax charitable deduction is equal to the present remainder interest. All gifts of real estate must be reviewed in advance of acceptance by the Gifts Acceptance Committee.
For additional information about Gifts of Real Estate, please contact Angela Dorsey, V.P. of Institutional Advancement at (770) 936-2284 or firstname.lastname@example.org
