Many donors may realize substantial tax advantages by transferring gifts of appreciated stock to the school. Gifts of securities are valued at the median price on the date of transfer to Waterford. Capital gains on the amount of appreciation may be avoided and, depending on the donor’s personal tax situation, he or she may receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the stock. For details on how to make a gift of securities to Waterford, please contact the Development Office.


Many individuals discover that they can make a substantial gift to Waterford through a bequest provision, a life income gift or a trust. The Development Office can provide details about the planned giving vehicles that are available. There are tax advantages associated with each type of gift and individuals should seek the advice of their own financial advisor before creating or revising an estate plan. Please contact the Development Office for more information.


Corporate matching gifts are a great way for Waterford alumni, parents and friends to maximize personal contributions and increase the impact of their donation. By taking advantage of a matching gift, you may be able to double or triple the amount of a contribution.

Each company has its own guidelines for matching, but most are simple:

  1. Download a matching gift form from your company website or request one.
  2. Complete the employee portion of the form and submit it along with your gift to Waterford.
  3. Waterford will verify the gift and submit the form with required documentation to the company.
  4. Waterford will contact you when the matching gift arrives.

Please contact the Development Office with any questions.
