Ways To Give

Gifts to Norwood School can be made in a variety of ways. All gifts provide immediate benefits to the School and are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

List of 5 items.

  • Credit Cards

    Contributions can be made online by credit card using VISA, MasterCard, or American Express. The contribution can be paid by setting up a recurring, monthly installment plan.
  • Gifts of Cash

    Please make checks payable to Norwood School. A cash gift entitles the donor to an income cash deduction in the year in which the gift is made.
  • Installment Plans

    The Development Office can send payment reminders on any preferred schedule, or we can automatically charge a credit card at regular intervals with specified amounts.
  • Matching Gifts

    Companies often sponsor matching gift programs that enhance their employees’ charitable contributions. When gifts are matched, Norwood benefits from the increased donation and the donor often qualifies for a higher Gift Club category. Please contact your employer’s human resources department for information on matching gifts to schools.
  • Gifts of Marketable Securities

    Norwood will accept a gift of marketable securities in any amount. If you have held the security for more than one year, you may be eligible for an income tax deduction for the value of the security on the date of the gift and you will not incur capital gains tax liability on the excess of that value over your cost basis. To donate securities, please instruct your broker to contact the School’s broker. The School will give you credit for the value of the securities on the date of the transfer.
