Ways to Give
We are pleased to share with you information on investing in Winchester Thurston School. Some charitable gifts can provide immediate tax benefits, while others help reduce your taxable estate or even provide an annual income. Regardless of which you choose, your gift will make an impact to current and future students of WT.
WT operates on a fiscal year calendar, running from July 1 to June 30. If you are mailing a donation at the end of the calendar year or the fiscal year, your gift will be credited on the date of your postmark. For electronic securities transfers, the gift is credited on the date it transfers into the WT brokerage account. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
Outright Gifts include cash, securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds), tangible personal property, corporate matching gifts, and pledges. These gifts can be designated to help a program or project of special interest to the donor. Outright gifts are most often claimed as a charitable tax deduction the year in which they are received.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many corporations and businesses sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees, employees’ spouses, or retirees. This is a great way to double or even triple your gift to WT.
To make a pledge payable over time, please contact Monica Gay at email@example.com or 412-578-3746.

PA Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC)
If your business pays PA taxes, WT students can reap the benefits. Through Pennsylvania’s Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, eligible businesses can earn significant tax credits by donating to WT’s scholarship and financial aid program.
If you own an IRA and are age 70 ½ or over, you can make a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) of as much as $100,000 from your IRA without paying income tax on the withdrawal. Your IRA administrator must transfer the funds directly from your IRA to WT. For more information contact Alex Neal at firstname.lastname@example.org or 412-224-4644.
