Recurring Gifts

Did you know that you can set up automatic monthly giving to Doane Academy with your credit card? Automatic monthly gifts or recurring gifts let you spread out the payments over the year, on a schedule that is more convenient for you. A recurring credit card gift may allow you to contribute more significantly than might otherwise be possible while extending tax advantages over the period of a year.

Gifts of Stock

Giving appreciated securities is a convenient way to support Doane Academy, while gaining tax advantages. You receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock on the date of the gift, provided you have owned the securities for more than 12 months. Most donors avoid the capital gains tax otherwise due on the sale of securities. You are urged to consult your tax professional before making gifts of appreciated stock. Electronic transfer is the preferred method for stock transfer because your gift is valued on the day it is received by Doane Academy. Shares can be transferred directly from your broker to Doane Academy’s brokerage account. Please contact Kathleen Lisehora Keays ‘88, Director of Development for more details.
