Thank you for your interest in supporting the young ladies of St. Vincent’s Academy through your gift of Catholic education.  Each and every gift is a testament to your belief in the mission of the Sisters of Mercy and the teachings of Catherine McAuley.

Annual Giving

The fiscal year for St. Vincent’s Academy spans each year from August 1st through July 31st.   Each year, we hold an Annual Fund Drive to help St. Vincent’s keep the cost of tuition as low as possible and to support the maintenance of the physical structures, the grounds, furnishings and other essential needs. Many people consider cash the easiest and most direct way to donate. You may specifically want your gift to assist needy students or go to a named scholarship, and we welcome your instructions.

You may honor a loved one or honor the memory of a loved one. Send a gift to St. Vincent’s to celebrate a friend’s birthday, anniversary or a holiday. We will send you a note confirming receipt of your gift and will send a corresponding note regarding your thoughtfulness to the person you have honored.

Other Ways to Give

Cash is not the only way to give of course. There are several other options you may consider when making your generous gift to St. Vincent’s:

Securities

Gifts of securities can provide the donor with a tax deduction and avoid capital gains tax.  You may make a gift of securities to SVA through your broker. Ask your broker to contact the Development Office at 912-236-5505 or the Finance Office 912-236-5508.

Matching Gifts

Many employers will match a charitable gift by their employees. Please check with your Human Resources Department.

Spoiler title

Many donors, because they do not have funds immediately available, fail to consider that leaving a gift to St. Vincent’s in their wills would be another meaningful way to contribute. The donor may make a bequest to St. Vincent’s after his/her death and after provisions for heirs have been completed.

Real Estate

A gift of real estate avoids estate, gift and capital gains taxes and provides a tax deduction for the donor.

Personal Property

There are those who own collections of items such as art, furniture, rugs or collectibles. These gifts of personal property will provide an estate charitable deduction.

Event Underwriting

Funds raised by special events go toward the daily operating budget, scholarships, financial aid or other needs. In order to maximize profits from these events, donors may choose to contribute to the underwriting of costs of an event such as food, printing costs, decorating, etc. If you are interested in contributing to an event or would like more information, please contact the Development Office at 912-236-5505.
