Types of Giving

Annual Fund

Each year, the Kanack School rallies community support during the Annual Campaign. This is a time when community students, families, businesses, foundations, volunteers, alumni and staff come together and give generously to help guarantee that everyone – regardless of their ability to pay – can benefit from our programs. Gifts are made on an annual basis and can be paid in 0ne to Four installments. 

Major/Transformational Gifts

As we begin the next phase of expansion, generous individuals, corporations and foundations will make leadership gifts that will help shape the future of the School. 

Gifts of Securities and Stocks

By donating appreciated stocks, bonds, and mutual fund shares that have been owned for more than one year, donors can avoid capital gains tax. They also receive an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the gift. A security’s gift value is determined by its fair market value on the day you make the gift. In the case of certificates mailed to us, the date of gift is the date of mailing.
