Ways to Give

Cash Contributions

To give online using your Visa, MasterCard, or American Express, please visit our secure online payment site. If you prefer to make a gift by check, please make payable to Trevor Day School and send to:

Development Office
Trevor Day School
1 West 88th Street
New York, NY 10024

To ensure your gift qualifies for a calendar-year tax deduction, please postmark your envelope by December 31st. To ensure your Annual Fund gift is counted for the current academic year, please make your contribution prior to June 30th.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities can enable a donor to deduct the full value of gift, without incurring capital gains.  If you are considering making a gift of appreciated securities, please note that you should transfer the shares directly to Trevor rather than selling them yourself, in order to preserve your tax advantage.  We recommend consulting your tax advisor prior to making any gift of securities.
 
 To transfer securities, please follow the guidelines below.
 
  • To ensure that your gift is properly credited, please contact  Maggie Keith, Annual Fund Manager, at 212.426.3329 or mkeith@trevor.org to provide the name and number of shares you plan to transfer and when the transfer will take place. Please also specify the purpose of your gift (i.e. Annual Fund, Senior Gift, other).
  • Provide your broker the following information:
                                    DTC #8862
                                    Account # 85007D75 (Trevor Day School)
                                    Merrill Lynch
                                    Winter Stein Potvin Group
                                    Attn: Hope Klein
                                    T: 212.382.8692
                                    F: 646.736.5388
 
  • Trevor’s policy is to sell securities upon receipt.  Your gift credit will be equal to the mean value of the security on the day the gift is deposited into Trevor’s account.  You will receive a formal letter of acknowledgement for tax purposes from the Development Office. 

Matching Gifts

Many employers will match charitable gifts, enabling your contribution to make an even greater difference.  If your company has a matching gift program, please contact Maggie Keith at 212.426.3329, or mkeith@trevor.org, or send the form to:
 
Development Office
Trevor Day School
1 West 88th Street
New York, NY 10024
 
The Trevor Development Office will process the forms and let you know when your gift has been matched.

Bequests

A bequest provides enduring support for Trevor Day School. For estate planning purposes, friends of the school may consider the following language for use in their wills:
