Ways to Give

Online Giving

Visit our Online Giving page to access either of our two secure online giving options:  PayPal or FirstGiving.

Cash Or Check

Such a gift is simple to make and immediately effective.  In right column of this page is a link to a printable donation form to fill in and mail to Friends' office along with your donation.  You may also use the electronic funds transfer (EFT) form in right column to request your bank transfer funds directly to Friends.

Multiple Year Pledges

Friends of Shawe and Pope John Schools, Inc. can accommodate donors who may wish to spread their gift over a longer period of time. Gifts may be paid over a time-frame that is convenient for the donor, with pledge reminders being sent monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually, depending on the wishes of the donor. For example, a gift of $20.00 each month, over 5 years, results in a donation of $1,200.00 – all of it tax-deductible!

Matching Gifts From Employers

Gifts you give to Friends may qualify for a matching gift from your employer. Many employers offer to match funds their employees donate to 501(c)(3) organizations, such as Friends. Check with your employer’s Human Resources office to find out how to maximize your donation.

In-Kind Gifts

Donors can also provide services, such as catering, advertising, printing, or anything else that will help Friends accomplish its mission of providing support to Shawe and Pope John. 

Appreciated Property

Gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc., that have appreciated in value since their purchase continue to be an attractive gift vehicle for many donors. Such gifts may qualify for federal income tax deductions and could eliminate or minimize a donor’s capital gains tax liability.

Planned Gifts

Many donors choose to remember Friends with legacy gifts by naming Friends in their wills, making Friends the beneficiary of an insurance policy or an IRA. Please contact our office to discuss the opportunities.

Gifts are Tax-deductible

Because Friends of Shawe and Pope John Schools, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service, as well as a fully integrated public charity under section 509(a)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, all gifts are tax-deductible.
