Gifting appreciated stock

Securities gifts are an advantageous way of making a charitable contribution that may positively affect financial, tax, and estate plans.  If you wish to make a gift of stock, please share the following account information with your broker:

Charles Schwab Account DTC 0164
St. Paul Academy and Summit School Account #47578630

Please be sure to notify the school of any transfers you make, as it is nearly impossible for us to know where transfers have originated once we have received them.  Most importantly, we need to know which stock you have donated.  Then we can properly credit you and thank you for your gift.  To learn more about making a security or stock gift to St. Paul Academy and Summit School, please contact Dorothy Goldie at 651-696-1422 or by email at dgoldie@spa.edu

Gifting Required Minimum IRA Distributions

Individuals who are age 70½ or older can make gifts of up to $100,000 directly from their IRA to St. Paul Academy and Summit School without paying federal income tax on the withdrawal. The following guidelines apply:

  • Donors must be age 70½ or older at the time the gift is made.
  • The funds must be transferred directly to SPA. It is important not to withdraw the funds before making a gift.
  • Each donor may give up to $100,000 per year.
  • Gifts can be used to satisfy the donor’s required minimum distribution.
  • Donors can exclude the distribution from income on their federal tax returns. If they do, they will not receive a charitable income tax deduction.
  • Qualified charitable distributions can only be made from an IRA, not 401(k)s or other retirement accounts.

Make a pledge

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. With your pledge confirmed, you will be sent a reminder according to the schedule or time of year you choose to make payment. 

Make a recurring gift

Sustainers make ongoing, monthly gifts to SPA by credit card or automatic deposit. Please call us at 651-696-1302 to become a Sustainer or set up your gift using the online giving form.

Matching gifts

Additional support to the Annual Fund 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.

To find out if you are eligible, visit our searchable database for up-to-date information on companies that match gifts. Call (651) 696-1302 for more information. 

Planned giving

We are available to talk with you about including SPA in your long-term estate or financial plans.  Planned gifts can include bequests, real estate, personal property, life income gifts or other types of appreciated property.

Learn more about planned gifts to SPA by contacting Dorothy Goldie, Director of Institutional Advancement, at 651-696-1422.

Reunion Giving

A gift in honor of your Reunion is a wonderful way to celebrate your time at the school.  Reunion gifts can pay tribute to a classmate, a teacher, or a particular program or activity by giving to one of four areas of need: financial aid and scholarships; student programs; academic support; or the school's area of greatest need.

To make a Reunion gift, contact Alyse Simondet, Director of Annual Giving, by email or at 651-696-1302 to find out how your class is celebrating Reunion with gifts to the school.
