Matching Gift Programs
Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that enhance a charitable contribution made by an employee. Not only does FA benefit from the increased donation, but also 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.
Gifts of Stock
By donating appreciated stocks directly to FA, you can avoid the capital gains tax that would be incurred if you sold the securities. Ask your broker to transfer securities to the FA account at Martha's Vineyard Savings Bank, please contact Bethany Dever, LPL Financial Advisor at 508-684-4161 or contact Pam Hinkle at the Falmouth Academy Development Office for specific instructions.
You may wish to make a gift in honor of a loved one, a student or graduate, or favorite teacher. You may also wish to remember a loved one with a memorial gift. Please let us know the name of the person you wish to honor or remember when you make your gift; we will be happy to notify the honoree or the family of the loved one of your kind contribution.
Personal property items that have appreciated in value, such as works of art, coin collections or antiques, may be given to Falmouth Academy as charitable gifts. The charitable deduction depends on the appraised value and whether or not the gift is related to our tax-exempt purpose. As a recipient of the gift, Falmouth Academy is not in a position to do appraisals, so please consult your financial advisor or tax professional.
