A gift of appreciated stock or real estate you have owned for more than one year will generate a tax deduction based upon fair market value without any capital gains tax liability. Consult your tax professional for the specific details on the deductibility of your gift.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Gifts may be given in memory or in honor of individuals and/or events. A special notecard and message of your choosing will be sent on behalf of Groves Academy to whom the gift is designated.

Planned or Deferred Gifts

Groves may be named as a beneficiary in your will or living trust. You can also name Groves as a charitable beneficiary of a Charitable Remainder Trust that pays lifetime income to you or a loved one. Assets such as IRAs, 401(k)s and life insurance may also be donated by naming Groves Academy through the beneficiary designation of the contract. In addition, there are opportunities and tax benefits to consider for a charitable contribution and your IRA. Please check with your financial advisor about transferring distributions directly from your IRA to make a contribution.


Gifts may be deferred until a specified time in the future. Groves Academy will send a reminder for the month you request.

United Way

Groves Academy qualifies as a nonmember agency through the United Way and may be designated as your contribution of choice through their Donor Choice Program. Simply write "Groves Academy" on the line marked "other." Please note that up to 15% may be deducted from your donation by the United Way to help cover their administration, fundraising and other costs.
