Gifts in Kind
Immediate gifts to support Sanford come in many forms—from donating used books back to the school to be used in the classroom, to volunteering services, to contributing flowers for the gardens. Gift in Kind donations are a great way to support Sanford with immediate needs. For more information, please contact Sanford’s Development Office at 302.235.6511.
Make a Planned or Deferred Gift
Planned Giving is a means to make a significant gift to Sanford School, either now or in the future, while garnering immediate or estate tax benefits for the donor or his or her heirs. Planned giving opportunities that offer tax savings and benefits while contributing to Sanford’s future security include wills, life insurance, life income gifts, charitable trusts, and real estate. If you are interested in more information on arranging for a planned or deferred gift, please contact Janice Payne at 302.235.6511 or visit the Planned Giving section of the website.
Matching Gift Programs
An easy way to enhance your gift to the school is through a matching gift from your employer. Many corporations match employee donations. If you don’t know if your company matches gifts, please consult your HR department or contact Sanford’s Development Office at 302.235.6511.
Make a Gift of Securities
There are excellent tax advantages to making a donation in the form of appreciated stock or property. Particular tax savings depend on individual circumstances and must be discussed with personal financial and tax advisors. If you wish to make a gift of stock or another appreciated asset, please use the transfer information below or contact Sanford’s Development Office at 302.235.6511.
Every year, 100% of our faculty, staff and Board of Directors makes a gift to the Annual Fund—just as they give 100% of themselves to our children. Please join them in making a financial commitment to the mission of Sanford School.
