WAYS TO GIVE

There are many ways in which you can contribute to Marian High School. You may consider the following vehicles to show your appreciation for the educational experience which Marian High School provided.

Marian High School Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is the simplest way for donors to provide for the future of Marian High School. Your donation to the Annual Fund gives us the necessary funding for annual and ongoing expenses.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts
A gift in honor or memory of a loved one may be given at any time through the Development Office.  Commemorate a special day birth, anniversary, wedding, religious anniversary or another special commemoration. 

Matching Gifts
Check with your company or your spouse's company. Many organizations double or even triple your annual contribution. By far, this is the easiest way in which you can help Marian High school.

Capital Gifts
Capital gifts, generally to the physical plant or endowment, differ from annual support, which provides eight percent of the operating budget and thus is expended each year. Instead, capital gifts allow the School the opportunity to look to its long-term future.

Direct Cash Gifts
These gifts are the most common form of giving to a charitable institution such as Marian High School and can be unrestricted or designated for a specific purpose. Cash gifts may be made outright and are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Planned Giving Opportunities
This type of giving includes gifts of a special nature-gifts which will help Marian down the road and you in the present.

  • Bequests
    This gift is a special remembrance of Marian High School in your will. In  addition to the special assistance given Marian, this generous gift usually results in  significant estate tax savings.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
    This deferred gift usually has special benefit to you as well as Marian. A gift of appreciated property can be the means for significant tax savings, an attractive
    annuity and an impressive "tax free" legacy to your family.

Securities /Stocks
Outright gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) can offer substantial tax savings. Federal income tax laws allow for deduction of the full market value of long term appreciated securities.
A great way to show your support for Marian High School is through the transfer of stock. Often it is more beneficial to transfer stock directly to Marian High School because you avoid a capital gains tax on any increased value and also receive an income tax deduction at the full market value of the stock.

Please contact the Development Office at 508-875-7646 ext. 205 if you would like to make a donation to Marian High School.
