Gifts to Tuxedo Park School can take many forms. Individuals can choose to support TPS in any of the following ways:
Gifts of Cash
Personal checks are the easiest method when donating to Tuxedo Park School. Donors can indicate on the memo line where the donation should be directed (Annual Fund, Capital Campaign, or a Restricted Gift). Donors who wish to use a credit card may do so by using our convenient and secure online donation form.
Gifts of Securities
The tax benefits of making a gift of appreciated securities may be two-fold. The cost-basis of the stock will be lower than the actual gift, allowing the donor to avoid paying capital gains on the increase in value of the stock, and the donor will receive an income tax deduction and gift credit from Tuxedo Park School for the full market value of the stock at the time of the contribution. Instructions for transferring stock to the School may be obtained from Fiona Duffy, Director of Institutional Advancement.
There are many companies that match their employees’ gifts to independent schools. Donors can contact their human resources offices for the appropriate forms and forward them with their gifts to the School for completion.
Gifts In Kind
Tuxedo Park School welcomes in-kind gifts to support specific programs and services. Before making an in-kind gift, please contact Fiona Duffy so we can be sure that we will be able to use your gift to its fullest potential.
Now and Forever Society
Donors may name TPS in their will or as a beneficiary of a revocable trust, a retirement plan or a life insurance policy. Unrestricted gifts are generally added to the school's endowment, while other donors may wish to establish and name a new fund. Making a bequest can be as simple as using this language in your will: I give, devise and bequeath to Tuxedo Park School, a nonprofit corporation in Tuxedo Park, New York the sum of $_____(or _____% of the residue of my estate).
Throughout the year opportunities arise to underwrite the costs associated with various TPS events.
