Your Gift Makes a Difference
Your generosity provides high school juniors with the opportunity to attend the Advanced Studies Program, no matter the extent of their families' resources. By making a gift to the ASP Annual Fund, you support critical parts of the ASP such as financial aid, faculty, interns, academic courses, and daily student life. By making an annual gift, you cast a vote of confidence in the program, and it helps sustain the ASP experience for well deserving students.

In 2015 a total of $88,175 was awarded to 108 students, many of whom would not have been able to attend the program without this support.

Thank you for helping talented, motivated New Hampshire students attend the Advanced Studies Program and for enhancing the ASP experience for all. If you have any questions about making a gift to the Advanced Studies Program and/or wish to be involved with the program, please contact Trent Smither, Advancement Manager, at tsmither@sps.edu or 603-229-4778.

    MasterCard and Visa are preferred, but we also gladly accept 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 gift to an ASP related scholarship fund, please indicate your designation request in the comments section at the bottom of the form.
  • Through a Gift of Stock

    The ASP happily accepts gifts of publicly traded securities. Please contact Don Paul Martin at dmartin@sps.edu before you transfer shares of stock to the ASP/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. In Part 3 of the form, be sure to indicate that your gift is for the ASP or related scholarship fund. 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

    Download this Wire Transfer Form for Donors to assist you in transferring a cash gift electronically. The form contains information your bank will need to transmit funds to SPS, and an easy fill-in section SPS will use to properly document and administer your gift. Please indicate that you wish to designate your gift to the ASP or related scholarship fund.
  • Matching Gifts

    You may be able to double your donation to the ASP. 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.

Students Say "Thanks"

“Thank you for helping to send one more student to ASP. My five weeks at this program have been some of the best times of my life. Every day there is something to look forward to, from classes to singing in chapel, to jumping off the docks. Thank you for letting someone else experience this opportunity.”
– Zoe, Hanover High School
“I would like to extend my gratitude to your thoughtful donation to the Advanced Studies Program. Because of your contribution, my peers and I have gained a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will carry on with us. This program has pushed me, and taught me about myself and what I am capable of. Again, my most sincere thanks go out to you. You made a difference.”
