SAS Fund Gifts

The St. Andrew's-Sewanee School Fund supports current operations, providing nearly 10% of the school's yearly budget. Approximately 1,200 individuals, businesses, churches, and foundations support the fund, with gifts ranging from $10 to over $10,000. These contributions are generally unrestricted, strengthening all school programs and touching the life of every student. Whether the support is used for supplies for science classes, sports team trips, theatre production materials, or building upkeep, the SAS Fund's success is crucial in the daily life of SAS.

Capital Gifts

Capital gifts are larger commitments, often made over a period of years, and generally in support of capital building projects and endowment. From the construction and remodeling of physical plant facilities to growing the endowment, these gifts support purposes that further the long-term mission of the school. More information on capital needs and making a gift is available.

Gift Funding

Cash or a credit card is the simplest and fastest way to make a gift of immediate use to SAS. Cash contributions are deductible to the full extent under IRS regulations. You can make an online credit card gift or make a pledge by following the instructions on the Make a Gift page.

Appreciated Securities

Capital and SAS Fund gifts of appreciated securities may provide advantages for some donors. These are usually transfers of publicly traded stock or securities, including mutual fund shares that have been owned long-term. Such transfers often allow contributors to realize a significant tax advantage. Individuals may be able to claim an income tax deduction for the full, fair market value of the securities. In order to make gifting easy and timely, please contact the SAS Development Office before transferring securities.

Appreciated Real Property

Donors may contribute appreciated real property, such as farms, land, second homes, and investment properties, which have significantly appreciated in value since their purchase. The advantages of gifting real estate are greatest when it has appreciated in value, has been owned long-term, and the property is considered a capital asset. Such contributions may assist contributors in avoiding capital gains taxes, as well as offering the opportunity to deduct the fair market value of the asset in the year the gift is made. As long as donors itemize their tax returns, if the entire charitable deduction is beyond a single year's limits, excess deductions may be carried into as many as the following five years.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving takes a long-term view and involves the thoughtful selection of gift-giving opportunities that are favorable to donors, possibly providing personal financial or family benefits. With a planned gift, SAS receives the asset at some future time, often after donors have received lifetime income. Significant tax benefits may result, depending on the type of gift and the assets used to fund it. There are a variety of planned giving opportunities that fit particular, personal circumstances. Please visit the Planned Giving website for more information.
