The Power of Giving

The Long Ridge School’s revenue is supplemented by fundraising activities that help the school operate in a financially conservative manner while supporting our plans for a strong and sustainable future. The success of our Annual Fund campaign, along with sound fiscal management, continues to help the school maintain affordable levels of tuition while providing a generous financial aid program. Please find below some helpful information as you consider your support. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Many companies will match your gift, greatly enhancing your personal contribution to the school by taking advantage of this easy option. Please ask your employer or contact the Development Office about your employer’s matching gift programs. A list of participating companies is available in the Development Office.

A gift of appreciated securities can entitle you to an income tax deduction. You can avoid capital gains tax on appreciated stocks that have been owned for more than 12 months, entitling you to a tax deduction for the fair market value at the time of the gift. Stocks that you have owned for 12 months or less entitles you to a tax deduction in the amount of the cost basis.
Please contact the Development Office to make an arrangement if you are making a gift of securities.
