List of 7 items.

  • CARES Act

    Please note that the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act has introduced new opportunities for charitable contributions to nonprofit institutions. The CARES rule allows donors who itemize deductions to deduct 100% of cash charitable gifts in 2020 (up to the full amount of your 2020 adjusted gross income). For individuals who take the standard deduction (rather than itemizing), the bill makes a new deduction available as well; up to $300 in annual charitable contributions (cash or stock) may be directly subtracted from your gross income.
  • Cash

    Gifts may be made by cash, check, or credit card. For your convenience, you can give online at www.cathedralnyc.org/giving. If you'd prefer to send a check, please write it to "The Cathedral School" and mail it to:

    The Cathedral School of St. John the Divine
    Attn: Yesenia Aguilera
    1047 Amsterdam Ave
    New York, NY 10025
  • ACH and Wire Transfers

    In this time of Distance Learning, The Cathedral School is pleased to introduce ACH transfers as a method of giving and continues to accept donations via wire transfer. For more information, please contact Daniel Hrdlicka, Annual Giving Manager, at dhrdlicka@cathedralnyc.org.
  • Stocks or Securities

    A gift of appreciated stock generally offers a two-fold tax saving: avoiding capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock and providing an income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Gifts of stock are valued at the median price on the date of transfer to The Cathedral School. To donate appreciated securities please download the Stock Transfer Form here, fill it out, scan it, and send it to Daniel Hrdlicka at dhrdlicka@cathedralnyc.org.
     
    If you have a Vanguard Account and would like to donate Vanguard mutual fund shares, please contact Daniel Hrdlicka at dhrdlicka@cathedralnyc.org for further instructions.
  • Matching Corporate Gifts

    Many employers will match employees’ donations. This opportunity presents an additional source of income for The Cathedral School and an easy way to leverage your gift into a larger donation. To find out if your company participates in a matching gift program, check with your Human Resources Department or log on to www.matchinggifts.com/cathedralnyc.  
     
    Donors must initiate the Matching Gift process, so be sure to secure the proper forms to forward with your gift to the school. Donors to Cathedral are given credit for both their original gift and any matching gift they secure.
  • Gifts-in-Kind

    Items such as computers, software, professional services, and athletic equipment that provide operational savings and meet specific needs may be donated to The Cathedral School. The school does not assign a dollar value to gifts-in-kind.
  • Planned Gifts

    Donors may consider giving through such means as life insurance, bequests, or charitable trusts. Gift planning can be a way to reduce or avoid estate and inheritance taxes. We encourage you to speak with your financial planner when considering any type of planned gift.
