Other Ways to Give

Stocks and Securities

There are advantages to giving appreciated stock.  A gift of highly appreciated stock -- dollar for dollar -- costs you less to give than cash.  You get full value for the market value the day the stock is given.  You avoid all capital gains tax if the stock has been held long term.  The full value of the stock goes to support the work of The Speyer Legacy School.

It’s easy.  Ask your broker to make the gift to Speyer Legacy’s account. Call the Advancement Office for details. 

A gift of appreciated securities, a popular alternative to a cash gift, offers a twofold tax savings. It provides you with an income tax deduction (equal to the fair market value at the date of transfer) and avoids capital gains tax.  Please email dbrewer@speyerlegacyschool.org and you will be provided with the information so that your broker can initiate the transfer.


If you wish to leave a bequest to The Speyer Legacy School, please consult the attorney who prepared your Will.  There are a variety of charitable bequest types;  some that return income to you and some that pass assets to your heirs, among others.

Make a gift that will live on to sustain your support of the school’s work.

In Honor or In Memoriam

A gift In Honor Of an individual is made to provide special recognition for a family member, friend or colleague for any occasion. 

A gift In Memoriam is made to recognize someone dear to the donor who has passed away and to celebrate his or her life.

The Speyer Legacy School knows the importance of both these types of gifts and takes special care to ensure they are recognized in the proper way. The donor is thanked and the person being honored is notified of the gift and who made it.  Dollar amounts are not usually revealed, only the sentiment.

For gifts that memorialized the deceased, the family is notified.

By making such a gift you are not only memorializing or honoring those who deserve recognition, you are investing in a valuable community resource on their behalf.  These gifts can also be matched.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations offer a matching gift opportunity.  A matching gift often doubles or triples an individual's gift.  Guidelines for matching gifts vary by company; however, generally, the donor should enclose a matching gift form when the gift is sent to Speyer Legacy. The Advancement Office will complete a portion of the form verifying the gift and will mail the confirmation to the corporation. Specific inquiries regarding matching gift policies, procedures and payment schedules should be made to the personnel office of the donor’s employer.
