The Brick Campaign is an ongoing capital effort that was started at the end of the Centennial Campaign and will continue until all 1,800 bricks have been installed. As of today, almost 400 bricks have been installed in the pathway in front of the gym.

Bricks are popular gifts for Graduation and Moving Up, as well as for milestone reunions for alumnae.

If you are interested in purchasing a brick, contact Alexandra Bean, Director of Institutional Giving at 914-967-5622, ext. 236.

Stocks and Wiring Instructions

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated stock have significant tax advantages for the donor. By donating appreciated shares, you avoid paying the capital gains tax and receive a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the stock. Please note that the donor should not personally sell the security, but transfer it to Holy Child's account.

Securities that have depreciated in value can also be used to make a contribution. In this case, however, donors should sell the stock themselves, taking advantage of the deductible loss, and contribute the proceeds to Holy Child as a cash gift.

To Make a Wire Transfer or Donate Securities:

Notify the Development Office by contacting Alexandra Bean, Director of Institutional Giving at extension 236.

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a way for you to make a gift to help Holy Child while securing the financial needs of your family and loved ones. Donors should be encouraged to consult their tax planners or attorneys, as well as the Development Office, so that the proper vesting language is used to ensure the funds go to the School. The benefit of planning is twofold:

  1. To ensure the gift fits your financial needs and objectives.
  2. To ensure your gift will be put to the best possible use. Often a planned gift may provide for loved ones and the school as well as create tax benefits for you. You can make a current planned gift, such as giving stock to Annual Giving, or a deferred planned gift. Deferred planned gifts include establishing a trust or annuity; giving stock, real estate, or life insurance; naming the school as a beneficiary of your pension plan; or remembering Holy Child in your will.

If you are interested in learning more about making a planned gift to School of the Holy Child, please contact Alexandra Bean, Director of Institutional Giving at 914-967-5622, ext. 236 or email Alex at a.bean@holychildrye.org.
