Impact of Giving

 

The collective support of Viewpoint’s parents, alumni, and friends enables the School to achieve its mission of instilling a love of learning and direction for a lifetime in our students. This goal is at the heart of all of Viewpoint’s endeavors.

Academic vitality depends upon financial health. Our community’s philanthropic support has a measurable impact on the level of Viewpoint’s excellence in education. All independent schools rely on charitable contributions to assist in fulfilling the educational aspirations of our students. Viewpoint’s faculty and students continue to benefit from the generous support of our entire community. Your tax-deductible gifts make it possible for the School to continue to grow as an institution and to afford its students exceptional academic programs, faculty, and facilities. Every year we ask all of our families and friends to support the School first with a contribution to the Viewpoint Fund, and if possible, to increase their gift, in an effort to grow this important source of revenue for the School. Additionally, the School hosts an Annual Benefit, which supports academic programs throughout the School. Finally, the Board of Trustees determines our current capital project priorities and initiates fund raising to support these efforts.

STOCKS AND SECURITIES

Gifts of appreciated stock offer a two-fold tax advantage: the donor may deduct the full-market value of the securities as a charitable donation (up to the allowable tax deduction limits) and avoid capital gains tax that would be due if the stock were sold on the open market. When making gifts of securities to Viewpoint, please be sure to give the stock itself, and not the proceeds from the sale. In most circumstances, a broker can facilitate the gift and execute it electronically.

When making a gift of stock, please notify the Advancement Office at the time of transfer and provide the name of the stock, number of shares, and date of transfer so that these gifts are accurately acknowledged. Click here to download Viewpoint's Securities Transfer Form.
