  • Make a gift of securities

    Please note a change of accounts effective Monday, June 13, 2016.

    The tax benefits of making a gift of appreciated securities may be two-fold: Avoid capital-gains taxes and receive a deduction for the transferred stock's full market value. 

    Stocks are frequently transferred by electronic delivery. For instance, stocks are usually held in "street accounts" with financial services firms. While a taxpayer may irrevocably instruct his or her broker to transfer the stock to charity, the gift is not complete until the stock is delivered to the charity's account. This means that the gift date for tax purposes may be days and possibly even weeks after the taxpayer's instructions to transfer. This poses a potential problem to last minute charitable contributions.  To receive calendar year tax credit for stock securities, please initiate the transfer prior to December 21st.  (Note below: transfers of mutual funds require more lead time.)

    Transfers to our broker do not include the name of the donor.  For proper credit, please contact Sonja Carter (contact info below) and indicate the name of the stock you are giving, the number of shares, and to what fund you would like to give (e.g. The Bank Street Annual Fund, the Graduate School Annual Fund, or the School for Children Annual Fund).

    Broker: Michael Dabulis, Neuberger Berman

    For more information and to assure that your gift is properly recognized and credited, contact: Sonja Carter, 212-875-4495.

    Also note: The transfer of Mutual Funds is not DTC eligible. To make a gift of Mutual Funds, please contact our broker with the name of the fund and number of shares to obtain a brokerage account and full bin numbers. To guarantee your transfer of Mutual Funds for end of calendar year receipt, please make your transfer prior to December 1 of the year in which you require tax credit.

  • Match your gift
    If you or your spouse works for a company that participates in corporate matching, your contribution to Bank Street may be doubled or even tripled. Please contact your employer’s human resources office for information on how you can participate in their matching program.
  • Consider planned giving

    Planned giving helps ensure Bank Street's future financial security.  Many donors can make a future gift to Bank Street through deferred giving.  You may not be able to afford to make a gift at present, but receive the tax benefit now.  There are several ways to make a tax-deductible planned gift: Charitable Trust Funds can pay the donor income throughout their lifetime, with the principal being paid to Bank Street after his or her death. Likewise, Charitable Annuities can provide you with tax free income for a set period, or for life, and benefit Bank Street at a later date. Naming Bank Street in your estate plan will likewise prove both tax-wise for the donor estate, no investment required at the present time. Another way to benefit yourself is by making the gift of a life insurance policy, while giving the cost of premiums as a tax-deductible annual gift.

    Bank Street greatly encourages and appreciates such future gifts  All these planned gifts are assets of the College and can be considered in the long-term planning of financial support.  Please consult with your attorney or tax professional about what gift opportunity might best fit your situation.

    In appreciation of your planned gift, you will be recognized as a member of the Lucy Sprague Mitchell Society. For more information contact Sonja Carter, Vice President for Development and External Relations.

  • Honor someone special

    A gift in Bank Street in honor of a student, teacher, or advisor is a wonderful way to commemorate a special occasion.  Gifts may also be made in memory of a friend or loved one.
