Many companies often offer matching gift programs that enhance a charitable contribution made by an employee. Not only does The Miami Valley School benefit from the increased donation, but a donor may qualify for a higher category of recognition when the gift is matched. Ask your human resource department for a matching gift form and send it in with your contribution.
Securities are the most common form of property given to non-profit institutions. The Miami Valley School welcomes gifts of stocks, bonds, and shares of mutual funds. By donating appreciated stocks directly to The Miami Valley School, you can avoid the capital gains tax that would be incurred if you sold the securities. When a gift of securities is made, donors are entitled to a charitable income tax deduction for the full, fair-market value of the stock for the year the gift is made. The fair-market value is determined by the mean of the high and low sales prices on the date the stock is received by Miami Valley School. To learn more, please contact the Development Office at (937) 434-1848.

Gifts made as part of your overall financial plan, which often benefit you now and The Miami Valley School later, are known as “planned gifts.” Bequests, gifts of insurance and retirement plan funds, and gifts that provide lifetime income can provide significant future resources to The Miami Valley School while providing you with income, tax and personal benefits.
