Ways to Give

The Tremont School accepts gifts of cash, checks and appreciated assets, such as securities, real estate, or personal property.

Cash / Check

  • A gift in the form of cash or check and the donor receives an immediate income tax deduction.
  • Credit card gifts or payments may be made online via our secure giving page.

Securities

  • Publicly Traded Securities and Mutual Funds – readily marketable securities
  • Closely Held Securities – securities in privately-held companies
  • Immediate fair market value charitable deduction and avoidance of capital gains tax

Real Estate

  • Defined as real property or interest in real property such as land or physical structures
  • Immediate fair market value charitable deduction and avoidance of capital gains tax

Stock

The Tremont School gratefully receives gifts of appreciated assets, such as securities.  Often a gift of appreciated stock offers tax benefits to the donor.  Not only can the donor take a charitable deduction for the current full, fair-market value of the stock, capital gains tax can also be avoided on the appreciation.

For information on donating stocks and other securities, please email Danielle Pedreira or call (781) 235-4805.

Please note, for tax purposes the gift is valid at the average of the high and low price on the day the shares are delivered or transferred to the Tremont School.
