Other Ways to Give

Make Your Gift in Stock

A gift of appreciated securities (held for more than one year) provides a tax deduction for the full value of the donated shares, without the responsibility for capital gains.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching-gift programs and will match any charitable contribution made by their employees. The impact of your gift to St. Albans could be doubled or possibly tripled. Go to to learn more.

Make a Recurring Gift

Recurring monthly gifts are an easy way to increase your generosity. We welcome gifts and payments by VISA, MasterCard, and American Express. We offer a monthly recurring credit-card option that ends June 30 (cards are typically charged on the last Friday of the month).

Make Your Gift Through Bill Pay

Current parents who make tuition payments through Bill Pay, may also make use this method to make gifts to Annual Giving.

Plan Your Gift

At St. Albans, we describe a planned gift as a contribution made with the right property, at the most opportune time, in the most advantageous form for maximum benefit to the School and the donor. Planned gifts may be outright, in trust, by will or in some combination. Our development professionals assist donors in meeting philanthropic and personal planning objectives. It’s never too early to consider planning your gift. Please take a moment to explore our extensive Planned Giving website.

Each year, Annual Giving builds a crucial bridge between tuition revenue and the actual cost of running the School by helping to fill the $10,000 tuition gap per student and by supplying nearly 9% of the School’s operating budget ($2.4 million in 2016).
