GIVING STRATEGIES OR OPPORTUNITIES

We appreciate that there are many worthy causes to support in this world, and we assure you, Brockton and the inspired growth of our outstanding humans is one of them!

TYPES OF GIFTS 

When you make a gift to Brockton School, you have flexibility in determining what type of gift you will make and how the funds will be used. 

All gifts of $25 or over to the school are eligible for a charitable donation receipt, thereby reducing the after-tax cost of your contribution.

  • One Time Gifts: Brockton School welcomes gifts from our generous and considerate donors at any time. Tax receipts will be issued as will Brockton School’s sincere gratitude! 

  • Pledged Gifts: Gifts can be pledged and paid over a predetermined period of time, making a larger investment more manageable while also opening up more opportunities to be recognized. 

  • Entry Bond (interest): The Brockton entry donation/bond is an opportunity to make a donation to the school in lieu of providing a non-interest bearing bond that remains with the school until your oldest child graduates. Many families choose to make the donation in order to take advantage of the immediate tax benefits of the contribution. Families holding unique interest-bearing bonds most often donate the interest of those bonds to the school. 

  • Sponsorships: Brockton provides many opportunities for corporate and/or individual sponsorship throughout the year. Whether it is sponsorship at an organized school event or sponsorship of something unique, gifts are genuinely appreciated. Gifts of sponsorship may be recognized in various manners, including but not limited to public recognition/promotion and additional ‘perks’.  

  • Planned Giving: Planned giving is the process of donating planned gifts often as a means of leaving a legacy. A planned gift is a contribution that is arranged in the present and allocated at a future date. There are many ways to establish your legacy with a planned gift to Brockton School such as: donating securities, naming Brockton as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan, or including Brockton in your life insurance policy, and more. Brockton School will work with your legal and tax advisors to support your planned gift.

  • Securities: While cash donations receive a tax receipt for the full amount of the gift, securities offer an additional advantage in that donors receive both a receipt for the full current value of the appreciated securities and an exemption from capital gains taxes on the amount of the appreciation. This can be a significant advantage over a direct donation of cash.

  • Through United Way: If you are participating in your workplace United Way campaign, you can choose to direct all or a portion of your contribution to Brockton School. INFORMATION YOU MAY NEED: Brockton School is a registered charity: Charitable Registration #86433 6342 RR 0001 (Brockton Preparatory School Society).

  • Corporate Matching Gifts (for volunteers and financial donors): Corporate or company Matching-Gift Programs are a great way to double or even triple your donation to Brockton. Many organizations will match all, or a percentage of, employee financial contributions to charitable organizations, making the employer a partner in employees’ personal philanthropy. Request a Matching-Gift form from your employer’s personnel office, fill it out, and submit your contribution to Brockton School. In addition, if you volunteer with Brockton, your employer may provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support. Ask to see if your corporation/company offers these programs. Requesting a matching gift or volunteer grant should be a brief process as initiated by the donor/volunteer.
