Honor a Loved One
A memorial or tribute is a meaningful way to celebrate someone important to you. Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or make a donation in memory of a loved one through personal fundraising pages or general gifts. Learn more about making a tribute gift

Workplace Matching Gift
Your gift to Snider may have an even greater impact if your employer offers a matching gift program.  Contact your company representative to see if your employer matches charitable donations.

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes – including Snider. Read more about Donor Advised Funds

Fund a Scholarship
You can convert your Pennsylvania tax liability into scholarships that will allow Snider students to receive full scholarships to high-performing private high schools.  This is money that you will already be spending on PA State income taxes, and you will be able to deduct this as a charitable contribution on your Federal Tax Return. Learn more about Funding a Scholarship through the BLOCS Program.

Gifts of Stock
Giving stock that has been held more than 12 months, offers a two-fold tax savings: a tax-deduction for the full fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and capital gains can be avoided. For stock transfer information, please call Scott Sommermann 609.417.6064.

IRA Charitable Giving
Individual Retirement Account (IRA) owners over age 70½ may make a transfer of up to $100,000 per year to qualified charities, including Snider. IRA charitable rollovers are tax-free and not included in adjusted gross income. An IRA charitable rollover may fulfill part or all of your required minimum distribution (RMD).

Planned Giving
Planned gifts allow your values to continue beyond your lifetime. Planned gifts are typically made through your will or estate plans to benefit Snider students after you are gone. These type of gifts can reduce the amount of your taxable estate, which may increase the actual amount available to loved ones.

For more information on any of these giving opportunities, contact Katy Hsieh or call 215.952.4196.
