Contributions to Ramapo for Children are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. All donors will be provided with an acknowledgment letter for tax purposes.

You may be able to double or even triple your gift to The National School Climate Center at Ramapo through your or your spouse’s employer’s matching gift program. Companies that participate in these programs will provide their employees with matching gift forms to fill out and send to Ramapo for Children along with their contribution or pledge form.

Contributions in Memory or in Honor

Honor someone special, celebrate an occasion, or memorialize a loved one with a charitable gift to The National School Climate Center at Ramapo for Children. Gifts can be designated for scholarships or other purposes, depending on the wishes of the donor. Prompt personal acknowledgments are sent for these (and all!) gifts. When sending a gift in honor or in memory of someone, please indicate the purpose of the gift and the name and address of the person to be notified.

Gifts of Stock

Charitable contributions to Ramapo are tax-deductible. However, there is an additional benefit when giving appreciated stock. If you hold marketable securities that would bring a long-term capital gain if sold, their outright gift to The National School Climate Center at Ramapo could mean significant tax savings, as you are not required to pay capital gains on the appreciation. Thus, the actual cost to you as a donor is less than the value of your gift. Contact the Development office at 845.876.8409 if you plan to make a gift of appreciated stock.

Planned Gifts (Deferred Giving)

As a long-term method of supporting Ramapo for Children, planned giving offers a range of options that have benefits for the donor and their family as well as Ramapo. One way of planning a gift is naming Ramapo as a beneficiary in one’s will; in planning your estate, you should remember that an outright bequest can reduce the taxation of your estate. If considering a planned gift, please contact the Development office at 845.876.8409 and consult with a tax specialist.

Capital Gifts

These special gifts are made for a particular purpose, such as endowment growth.
