Ways to Give
Annual Fund Giving
Every year the Annual Fund helps to close the “GAP” between tuition and operating expenses. Tuition covers about 80% of the cost of a Providence education. That means that for every $1 needed to run the school, 80 cents comes from tuition and 20 cents comes from our generous benefactors. Your gift to the Annual Fund helps bridge the “GAP” gap between tuition and operating costs.

Cash – Gifts of cash are fully deductible up to a maximum of 50% of your adjusted gross income. For example, if your adjusted gross income for this year is $50,000, up to $25,000 of charitable gifts may be deducted this year. Any excess can generally be carried forward and deducted over as many as five subsequent years.
Stock -If you own stock, it is often more tax-wise to contribute stock than cash. Gifts of appreciated stock are fully deductible. This is because a gift of appreciated stock generally offers a twofold savings. First, you avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock. Second, you receive an income tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift.
In-Kind and Other Gift Sources – A Providence education will last a lifetime. Parents, families and friends must be actively involved in order to maintain this program of quality education for today’s students, the adults of tomorrow. Your participation will make a difference. As a member of the Providence family, you can get involved through: In-kind Gifts (Tax advantage) – Providence purchases many supplies for its daily activities, events and renovations. You or your company can help offset our expenses by donating product or merchandise to Providence.
Real Estate – A gift of real estate can also be tax-wise. A residence, vacation home, farm, acreage or vacant lot may have so appreciated in value through the years that its sale would mean a sizeable capital gains tax. By making a gift of property instead, you would avoid the capital gains tax, and, at the same time, receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the property.
Life Insurance – Gifts of life insurance can provide a significant charitable deduction. You could purchase a new policy or donate a policy that you currently own but no longer need. To receive a deduction, designate Providence as both the owner and beneficiary of the life insurance policy. Check with your insurance agent for the details.
Bequest -Providence can be named a beneficiary in your will in any one of a number of simple ways. An outright gift, either a designated dollar amount or percentage of your estate, could be specified. Providence could also be named as a remainder beneficiary to receive funds only after specific sums have been paid to individual beneficiaries. Not all of the available methods of giving could be included on this site, and not all the tax ramifications of each form of gift could be explained. Check with your attorney, accountant or other tax advisors for additional information on how these general rules apply to your situation.
