Other Ways to Support CDS
Many companies offer matching gifts for educational institutions as their way of supporting their employees and helping the communities where their employees live and work. Check with your company’s human resources to find out if your company has a matching gift program.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Chesterfield Day School accepts memorial and tribute gifts that honor or recognize a loved one or friend. These gifts can be unrestricted contributions to the Annual Fund or restricted to a specific existing program or need. Memorial and tribute giving is a thoughtful way to recognize a teacher, parent student or friend.
Substantial or “lifetime” gifts will be accepted to set up endowments, which will help the school in perpetuity. For information about endowed gifts, contact the Advancement Office.
Whether through a will, trust, or income-producing agreement, planned gifts can provide tax benefits while having a significant positive impact on the School.
One planned giving vehicle which can make a difference is the gift of additional paid up life insurance. By naming Chesterfield Day School as the beneficiary for paid up insurance, a smaller investment now can grow to become a strong leadership gift. Contact the Advancement Office about setting up a planned gift that can have a positive impact on the future of the School.
