Ways to Give

List of 9 items.

  • Cash, Check, or Credit Card

    Gifts of cash, typically payable by check, and credit card are tax deductible and provide immediate funds to the school. The easiest way to give is online.
  • Matching Gifts

    Many companies offer their employees the opportunity to double or, in some cases, triple their gifts to certain programs or organizations by matching them. Please check with your employer about their Matching Gift Program.

  • Securities and Property

    Gifts of stocks, other securities, or property have two significant advantages to the donor — they are tax-deductible for the full fair-market value of the gift when it is made, and the donor does not pay capital gains on the appreciated value of the stock or property. Click here to download a form and instructions for making a gift of securities.
  • Donor-Advised Funds

    Donor-advised funds are a great way to support Burke’s and they provide good tax incentives for donors. At Burke’s, donor-advised funds can be used for Annual Fund gifts, capital campaign gifts, or Raise the Paddle gifts. However, they can not be used to fulfill written pledges.

    The IRS is fairly particular on how you use the funds. We can only accept donor-advised funds exclusively intended for charitable purposes. The IRS prohibits donor-advised fund account holders from receiving more than incidental benefits associated with the gift. For example, purchasing items of any kind at the live or online auction is not allowed. If you would like to use donor-advised funds to underwrite the auction, you must decline the tangible benefits that accompany it, such as tickets to the event.
  • Cryptocurrency

    Please click here to make a gift of cryptocurrency online. If you have any questions, reach out to Yukiko Meadows, Director of Advancement.
  • Gifts in Kind

    Burke's welcomes donations such as classroom supplies, athletic equipment, and other items related to the educational program, as well as donations of auction items to the annual Benefit. Gift value is determined by the donor through appraisal or a record of purchase. Please contact the Advancement Office if you would like to make a gift in kind.
  • Planned Giving

    The Barbara Burke Legacy Society honors alumnae, past parents, grandparents, current parents, and friends who have remembered Burke’s by bequest in their estate plans or who have made a life income gift or other type of planned gift. You can become a member by:
    • placing Burke’s in your will
    • making Burke’s the beneficiary of a retirement account
    • making a gift of life insurance policy
    • establishing a charitable trust
    • making a gift of real estate or other tangible property
    For more information about the tax advantages of making a planned gift for you and your family, and other helpful information about planned giving, please contact Yukiko Meadows, Director of Advancement.
  • Other Deferred Gifts

    It is possible to make gifts of property that may allow income tax benefits for the donor during his or her lifetime, may be used during the lifetime of the donor, and which would revert to Burke's, with possible estate tax savings. Institutions can achieve stability and growth through planned giving. Please contact your tax advisor for specific advice that relates to your particular circumstances.

    Please notify the Advancement Office if you have made a deferred gift to Burke’s so that you will be included in The Barbara Burke Legacy Society.
