Tradition of Giving

Of all the wonderful traditions associated with Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School, we are grateful for the tradition of charitable support from our dedicated parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, and faculty. As an independent school founded over 60 years ago it is this very tradition of giving that has enabled Saint Joseph’s to continue as one of South Florida’s premier independent schools with an emphasis on academic excellence, leadership, and Christian values. As we continue our focus on our S-STEAM education, we continue to invest in technology and materials to support this advantage. Your contributions ensure we remain ahead of the curve.

There are many ways you can get involved and make a gift to Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School. All gifts and pledges help us continue to provide a strong foundation for our children’s future and enrich our students, programs, and facilities.

Other Giving Programs

Endowment: The endowment fund supports a variety of programs, including scholarship, academic chairs, professional development, academic programming, facilities, and other needs that fall within the mission of continuing to grow Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School. Tribute or Memorial Gifts are also gifts to the Endowment.

Restricted Giving: If there is one particular aspect of the School’s operations that particularly interests you, consider a specific gift.  If you are interested in making a gift toward a specific area of need, please contact the Development Office at (561) 732-2045.

Planned Giving: A set of ways that a donor can leave money/assets to Saint Joseph’s at his/her death, or it is a way to invest money so that the donor receives benefits during his/her life and then bequeaths the remaining funds to Saint Joseph’s School. Planned Giving programs are designed and set-up to provide future income to Saint Joseph’s, so it can continue to build on a tradition of academic excellence, leadership, and Christian values.

 

Planned Giving programs can be adapted to each donor’s needs. A list of Planned Giving opportunities is outlined below.

  • Gifts of Cash
    Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. From your standpoint, it’s no fuss, no bother. Find out how Saint Joseph’s can put your contribution to work without delay.
  • Gifts of Securities
    Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of securities to us offers you the chance to help our School while realizing many important benefits for yourself.
  • Gifts of Retirement Plan Assets
    If you are like many Americans, your financial future will likely revolve around your retirement plan assets. To maximize the value of a retirement account, consider making a lifetime gift of its after-tax values to a tax-exempt deferred giving plan.
  • Gifts of Savings Bonds
    Savings bonds – likely the nation’s most widely held appreciated asset – represent major assets that may have stopped growing and are now collecting dust, just waiting to be put to use. A tax-wise use for your appreciated savings bonds is to support a cause you care about.
  • Gifts of Real Estate
    Using real estate, such as your house, farm, or commercial property, to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive significant tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.
  • Gifts of Life Insurance
    Donating your life insurance could be a wonderful way to fulfill your desire to support our School. By making Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School the beneficiary of an existing policy, you make good use of your resources and expand your ability to make a significant gift.

All gifts to Saint Joseph’s Episcopal School are tax-deductible as allowed by the IRS.
