Donors who wish to contribute but do not wish to make an immediate payment may make a pledge. A pledge is a promise to make a specified payment within the campaign period.
Annual Fund pledges are expected to be paid in full by March 31st so that we might utilize the funds during the current academic year.
Campaign pledges to the Quintessence Campaign for Carrollton to complete the remaining buildings on the Master Plan can be made over time, in accordance to the donor’s wishes pledge. Pledge reminder letters will be mailed at the times requested by the donor.
Stock & Securities
Making a gift of securities is both simple and tax efficient. Gifts of appreciated stock may allow a donor to avoid a capital gains tax in addition to receiving a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock. To initiate a gift of stock, we ask that you follow the instructions on the Stock Transfer form. Please fax a copy of the completed form to the Development Office when the transfer is made with your broker.
Carrollton accept gifts-in-kind if they can be used in support of the mission of the school. Such gifts might take the form of inventory given through businesses owned by donors.
A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage or vacant lot may have so appreciated in value through the years that its sale would mean a sizable capital gains tax. By making a year-end gift of this property instead, a donor would avoid the capital gains tax, and, at the same time, receive a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the property.
Does your employer match gifts? Many companies have a matching gift program which can double, and, in some cases, triple the value of your gift. Please check with your firm's Human Resource Department. The matching gift must be initiated by you once you have contributed to Carrollton. When we receive the paperwork from the company, we can verify that your gift was made and complete the necessary documentation.
