Corporate Matching Gifts – Many corporations offer their employees the benefit of a matching gift program. Companies will match contributions you make to non-profits like Rocky Hill School to varying degrees, doubling and sometimes tripling your gift. Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program and submit a matching gift form along with your Annual Fund gift. Examples of some matching gift companies include Fidelity, FM Global, Exxon, State Street Corporation, Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, General Electric, Coca-Cola, IBM, and Microsoft.
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, potentially 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 the School 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 Liz Isdale at 401.884.9070 ext. 132 on the day instructions are given to transfer 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, Assistant Head of School, to discuss the contribution and confirm if the item is able to be used by the School.
