Gifts of appreciated stock offer a two-fold tax advantage: the donor may deduct the full-market value of the securities as a charitable donation, and at the same time, avoid capital gains taxes. To obtain a copy of The Shlenker School’s Securities Transfer Form, please contact Tara Gassett, at (713) 270-6127.
If you have a Charles Schwab & Co account, the process is simple:
Submit a letter of authorization to Charles Schwab & Co. providing the account number and amount of transfer
Notify the School (via email) that the transfer has been made
Many companies/corporations match gifts made by their employees, thereby doubling the donor’s gift. Please ask if your employer participates in this program. It is an easy and impactful way to enhance your donation to The Shlenker School.
The Shlenker School’s Annual Fund plays a critical role in supporting the School’s annual operating budget and is immediately used during the school year. Gifts to the Annual Fund are impactful—they help us retain our phenomenal faculty members and give them opportunities for growth, they help us afford new technology and enhancements to stay current, and they help us provide resources for our classrooms, labs, and ancillary programs.
By making an unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund, donors are giving the School the opportunity to address needs and seize opportunities as they arise.
An endowment gift to The Shlenker School provides a successful long-term future for our School. When you make an endowment gift, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits. For more information on making an endowment gift, contact Tara Gassett, at (713) 270-6127..
In addition to monetary gifts, the gift of your time is highly valuable. There are many ways to get involved in the Shlenker community.
One of our seven core values at The Shlenker School is community. Our community is made up of many different constituents including students, parents, teachers, administrators, clergy, staff, grandparents, friends, trustees, and community partners. Each stakeholder contributes to the community in their own unique way and together they help us ignite the spark.
