Tax-deductible gifts to the Saint James School Annual Fund advance our programs and offerings by supporting the extraordinary value of our school’s education. Donations allow countless resources to be placed at the fingertips of administration, teachers, coaches, and students.

The Saint James School Endowment Fund is a permanent investment that generates income to supplement school programs. The endowment currently consists of two parts.
The endowment allows you to leave a legacy that will continue to grow and support the Saint James School educational experience for years to come.
Gifts to the Capital Campaign provide the resources for capital projects, such as new construction and/or the maintenance and expansion of existing facilities as well as purchasing equipment. They also reduce the debt on the existing facilities, thus enabling the school to add or to renovate areas of the campus that need attention.
Capital Campaign gifts currently support the continued development of the Saint James School Commons facility – a collaborative space for teaching, learning, and dining.
Planned gifts are made as a result of careful reflection about the type of legacy donors wish to leave Saint James School. These gifts – often a bequest, trust, or gift of property helps both the donor and the school. Donors may reduce taxes, increase income, or satisfy other personal financial needs while Saint James becomes the beneficiary of an outright or deferred gift.
If Saint James is named as the non-profit or remainder beneficiary, our students will benefit and the donor will receive an income tax deduction, minimize capital gains taxes, and possibly arrange for increased retirement income. Check with your financial advisor for information as to how this might affect you in your situation.
Below are a few avenues in which donors can significantly impact future generations of Saint James students through planned gifts.
As an employee benefit, many parent companies match their staff’s philanthropic contributions. Matching gifts may allow you to double or even triple your gift to Saint James School.
The process is simple. After confirming your employer is a Matching Gift Company, request a matching gift form (usually available through Human Resources), complete it, and return to Saint James School with your donation. The Saint James School Advancement Office will then submit a form to your company’s matching gift department which subsequently sends the matching gift back to the school.
