Ways to Give
Thank you for your support of Ursuline Academy.
Make your gift to Ursuline Academy in one of the following ways:
Online Gifts: You can easily and securely make an online gift to the school. We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover. You may make a one-time gift, or choose to give a recurring gift on a monthly or quarterly basis.
Mail or Phone: Checks can be made out to Ursuline Academy and sent directly to: Ursuline Academy, Advancement Office, 85 Lowder Street, Dedham, MA 02026. Or call the Advancement Office at 781-493-7715 to make a gift by phone.
Pledges. You may find that you are able to increase your annual gift to Ursuline Academy by making a pledge for payment over several months. Pledges for the Fund for Ursuline must be paid by June 30th of the current academic year.
Make your Gift Go Further
Matching Gifts. Matching gifts allow your donation to be doubled or even tripled. This is an excellent way to make your gift go further in support of Ursuline. There are many companies that will match charitable donations made by employees. Check with your organization to confirm if it matches gifts and if you can take advantage of the program.
Other Ways to Give
Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds. Securities are excellent ways to give, particularly if they have appreciated in value. The full market value of the stock is tax deductible, not just the original investment cost. Thus, you may avoid capital gains taxes. If you wish to make a gift of this type, email the Chief Advancement Officer or call 781-493-7711.
Property. Both real estate and personal property qualify as charitable gifts that would benefit Ursuline Academy. Consider real estate such as residences, land, and buildings, as well as antiques, jewelry, artwork/coin collections, or other collectibles. (Appraisal would be part of your gift.) If you wish to make a gift of this type, email the Chief Advancement Officer or call 781-493-7711.
Business and In-Kind Gifts. Businesses can give gifts of inventory, equipment, materials, and services, as well as cash. If you own your own business, giving through your business is another way to benefit Ursuline Academy and positively impact your taxes. In-kind gifts are also tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you wish to make a gift of this type, email the Chief Advancement Officer or call 781-493-7711.
Memorial Gifts and Gifts in Honor
A gift may be given to the Fund for Ursuline in memory of a loved one or in honor of a family member, friend, or special teacher. In honor gifts are a wonderful way to acknowledge a birthday or other special occasion, and all such gifts are acknowledged to the donor and the honoree, and will be listed in the Annual Report. For information on how to direct memorial gifts to Ursuline Academy, please call the Director of Annual Giving at 781-493-7715.
Designating your Gift
While unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund are very important because they allow greater flexibility and can be used wherever most needed, you may designate your gift if you so choose. You may decide to direct your gift to benefit a scholarship fund, our campus ministry program, the fine arts, or athletics.
Planned gifts help solidify the school's long-term future and can include bequests, life insurance, or an individual retirement account. If you wish to make a gift of this type, email the Chief Advancement Officer or call 781-493-7711.
Thank you for your philanthropic support.
All gifts to Ursuline Academy are greatly appreciated and wisely used.
