There are several ways to make a gift to Rocky Hill School. Many donors now prefer to give a gift online, while others choose to mail in a contribution. Rocky Hill can also accept gifts of stock or securities, in-kind contributions, insurance policies, bequests and more.
Donors may also opt to make installments on a pledge over time. This can be done automatically on a credit card or through electronic billing. Donors may also choose to receive monthly reminders in the mail or electronically. For more details, please direct your questions to Beth DeGerlia, Director of Development.

Stock Gifts - If you would like to make a gift of stock, please notify your broker of your decision in regard to the specific security and number of shares to be given. It is probably to your greatest advantage to gift an appreciated security, saving you capital gains. These shares can be electronically transferred to the School’s brokerage account. When the securities are received, we will sell the shares and all proceeds are then remitted to RHS and credited to the fund designated by the donor. The gift date is the date the securities are transferred to Rocky Hill School, and the value of your gift is calculated on the mean value per share on the date of the gift.
For more detailed instructions please go to: Gifting Securities to Rocky Hill School.
The donor, or the donor’s broker, should notify Beth DeGerlia , Director of Development, at 401-884-9070, ext. 129 on the day instructions are given to transfer the securities. At that time, we will provide necessary account information and notify our broker to expect the transfer of securities into Rocky Hill School’s account so that there is minimum delay between the date of gift and the sale of the securities.
In-kind Gifts - Gifts of tangible items or professional services to be used either by the School or for event related auctions and raffles are in-kind gifts. When considering donating an item to the School, please contact Beth DeGerlia, Director of Development, to discuss the best use of your contribution. We want to be certain your gift is used appropriately. In-kind gifts help the School in many ways. Gifts of furniture, office supplies and equipment, and books are wonderful examples of in-kind items RHS can use. On occasion, our School may not have a use for an item and your gift could better serve another non-profit organization. In that case, we will gladly help you locate another recipient.
