Some donors prefer to pledge a gift to be paid off in regular increments over a specific period of time.
Pledges may be set up by completing our online pledge form and selecting Pledge (donate later). With your pledge confirmed, you will be sent a reminder according to the schedule or time of year you choose to make payment.
Long-term, appreciated securities (i.e. stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares) used as a gift offer significant tax benefits to the donor. In addition to being exempt from capital gains taxes, securities that were owned for more than one year give the donor a charitable income tax deduction equal to the market value of the securities on the date of their receipt by the School for up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.
Additional support to Briarwood is provided every year through the generosity of corporate matching gift programs that make it possible for employees to increase the value of their gifts. The company match will be credited to you, and you will receive donor recognition for the total amount. Many corporate matching gift programs will match not only gifts of current employees, but also retirees, directors and spouses.
