Vendors sell scrip (often in the form of gift certificates or gift cards) at a discount to the school. For example, they may sell a $25 gift card to Bath and Body Works for $20. The school earns $5 on the sale of
the gift card. Participating in traditional scrip involves a little advance planning, as it takes about two weeks to receive scrip after placing an order. A volunteer parent takes scrip orders every Monday after school. Call the office at (805) 672-0411 for more information on purchasing traditional scrip.
Ways to Support St. Augustine’s through Giving Monthly Gifts from Current Income
Matching Funds from your Employer
Gifts in the Form of Securities or Real Estate
A gift of securities or real estate that has increased in value can be one of the most advantageous ways of giving. Gifts of this type provide you with the following benefits: 1) of making a significant gift without affecting your standard of living; 2) of avoiding paying capital gains tax on the appreciation of the securities or real estate; and 3) of securing a Federal Income Tax deduction.
Gifts from Bequests
A bequest to St. Augustine Academy can result in a greater amount of your estate passing to your heirs, both in terms of current tax savings and the possibility of future estate tax savings – especially when coordinated with a Wealth Replacement Trust or ILIT.
Gifts of Life Insurance
A donor may make St. Augustine Academy the beneficiary of a life insurance policy.A new policy may be taken out in the name of St. Augustine Academy or an existing policy may be gifted to the school. If a policy is gifted, your donations to the school in lieu of premium payments will be tax deductible.
Gifts of Personal Property
Gifts of personal property are tax deductible. The donor also avoids payment of capital gains tax on any appreciation of the property (examples would include jewelry or collectible coins).
