Your support makes our work possible.

Allendale Columbia School students are the direct beneficiaries of the generosity of our donors. Through your gift to our annual fund, The Fund for Allendale Columbia School, you support the school’s most critical and immediate needs. These include academic programming, technology, faculty recruitment and development, financial assistance, classroom materials and supplies, library books, field trips, and facilities maintenance and renovation—essentially everything it takes to run the school. By making a gift, you are choosing to take an active role in the life of AC and the students we serve. We thank you in advance for your generosity and support!

We accept gifts in the following ways:

By phone  |  Online  |  By mail  |  Gifts of stock  |  Matching gifts  |  Leadership Circle  |  Planned Giving  |  Events

Gifts of stock

You can make a bigger impact at AC by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to AC.  Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction. As with all gifts, you should consult your tax advisor to confirm the best option for you. We just want to make it as easy as possible once you decide. 

If your broker (or bank) holds your shares, you may request that they be transferred directly to Allendale Columbia School via DTC (Depository Trust Company).
