Ways to Give

Cash Gifts: Cash contributions, whether by check, or credit card are the easiest way for most donors to give to OLP.

Pledges: A pledge is a form of gift that enables the donor to make the contribution on a set schedule over an agreed upon length of time, usually 3-5 years. This often allows donors to commit to an amount larger than they might otherwise be able to make within a one-year time frame. The Office of Institutional Advancement has the ability to accommodate pledge payment schedules suiting most circumstances.

Stocks & Bonds: Stocks and bonds are a way to make a contribution. Donors are often able to make a larger donation than with cash. Gifts of appreciated property in the form of stock (other than closely held) are accepted by OLP. The date of the gift is determined by the date the securities are transferred.  Illiquid or closely held stock require prior approval.  Donors should contact OLP ahead of the transfer for proper credit.  Be sure to discuss this type of donation with your tax/financial advisor or broker.

Real Estate: Given the dynamic real estate market over the past few years, a donation of real estate may be beneficial to both the donor and to OLP. In order to continue our mission, OLP will consider on a case-by-case basis accepting the gift of a home, vacation property, condominium, apartment complex, undeveloped land or other real estate.

Paid Up Life Insurance: Donors who own paid-up life insurance policies that are no longer needed for the original purpose may donate the policy to OLP by transferring ownership to the school. Discuss this option with your tax advisor or qualified professional.

Wills, Trusts, and Planned Giving: Please include OLP in your estate plans. Inclusion in your will can take several forms:

» Designate a specific amount to be directed to the school
» Designate a percentage of your estate to be directed to the school
» Designate the “remainder” portion of your estate that is left over when all other obligations and provisions have been addressed

For document preparation, please use the legal title of the school: Academy of Our Lady of Peace.

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace is a non-profit educational institution recognized by the IRS code 501c(3) – Federal Tax ID #95-2113807

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace is eligible for Corporate Matching Gifts. Please check with your employer for instructions on how to have your gifts to OLP matched.
