Cash or Securities

Matching Gifts

Many companies offer matching gift programs for gifts made by employees (or the employees' spouses) to non-profit organizations. These programs are a great way to increase your contribution to the School. Inquire with your employer as to whether your company offers a matching program and if it does, to give you the proper forms. You will receive credit for the original gift and the matching gift. Both you and the company will be acknowledged in the Annual Report.

Giving Through Cash, Checks or Credit Cards

The School will gratefully accept online gifts or checks made payable to Gulf Stream School:

  • Gulf Stream School Development Office
    3600 Gulf Stream Road
    Gulf Stream, FL 33483

To make a gift with a Visa, MasterCard, or American Express cards, please call the Development Office at (561) 276-5225.

Donors are entitled to an income tax deduction for the year the gift is made.

Giving Securities

The school gratefully accepts readily marketable, publicly traded securities and, in some cases, unregistered securities. Donors who give appreciated securities benefit in two ways. First, you pay no capital gains tax on the amount of the increase in value and secondly, your income tax deduction is equal to the average price of the security on the day the gift is made.
