STOCK GIFTS

In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities. If you will be transferring stock or other securities to the school, please notify Barbara Keilwitz at 847.234.4300 ext. 229.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies have a matching gift policy that can double or sometimes triple the amount of a contribution of cash or securities by an employee or their spouse.

Woodlands Academy credits the individual donor for their total gift which includes the company matching gift and is recognized in the giving society with the total gift amount. To search your employer of company, please click here.
