  • By Check

    Please make checks payable to St. Paul's School. Be sure to indicate in the memo field or in an accompanying letter if your gift is for the Alumni Fund, Parents Fund, the ASP, a particular capital project, or any combination thereof. If you have any questions regarding a donation by check to SPS, please call our Gifts Manager at (603) 229-4713.

    Send check to:

  • By Credit Card

    MasterCard and Visa are preferred, but SPS also gladly accepts American Express and Discover. These gifts are recognized at full value on the date that a charge is accepted by the bank. If you wish to make a credit card gift, the information you provide will be used solely for processing your gift and verifying contact information. To make a secure, online gift, please click here.
  • Through a Gift of Stock

    SPS happily accepts gifts of publicly traded securities. Please contact Don Paul Martin at dmartin@sps.edu before you transfer shares of stock to SPS so that we can immediately identify you as the donor of those shares and therefore sell them right away and credit you in the quickest manner possible.  There are two ways to transfer securities:

    1. The preferred method of transferring securities is to do so electronically. Download this Stock Form for Donors to assist you in the process. The form contains information that your broker will need to execute the transaction, and an easy fill-in section SPS will need to properly document and administer your gift.
    2. To send stock by mail, remit a dated but unendorsed stock certificate, a fully executed stock power form, and a letter of instruction to Don Paul Martin (address above). In order to expedite the processing of your gift, St. Paul's School should be designated on the stock power form or related instruments of transfer. Be sure to indicate if your gift is for the Alumni Fund, Parents Fund, the ASP, a particular capital project, or any combination thereof. The date of the postmark constitutes the date of the gift.

    St. Paul's School cannot sell stock unless the name of the donor is stipulated.  Consequently, donors cannot receive credit for "unclaimed" stock gifts. Please contact Don Paul Martin, Gifts Manager, for assistance.
     
  • Wire Transfer

  • Matching Gifts

    You may be able to double your donation to St. Paul's School. Many employers sponsor matching gift programs to match charitable contributions made by their employees. Gifts from retirees and spouses may also qualify for a match. To find out if your company has a matching gift program, click here.
