List of 4 items.

  • Cash Contributions

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

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

    To ensure that your gift qualifies for a calendar-year tax deduction, please postmark your envelope by December 31st. To ensure your Trevor Fund gift is counted for the current academic year, please make your contribution by June 30th.
  • Gifts of Securities

    Gifts of appreciated securities can enable a donor to deduct the full value of a gift, without incurring capital gains. If you are considering making a gift of appreciated securities, please note that in order to preserve your tax advantage, you should transfer the shares directly to Trevor, rather than selling them yourself. Prior to making any gift of securities, we recommend that you consult your tax advisor.

    To ensure that your gift is properly credited, please contact the Development Office at [email protected], to provide the name and number of shares you plan to transfer and when it will take place. Please also specify the purpose of your gift (i.e., the Trevor Fund, Senior Gift, or other).

    To transfer securities, please follow the guidelines below.

    Provide your broker the following information:

    • DTC #8862 Account # 8YL07D75 (Trevor Day School)
    • Merrill Lynch
    • Winter Stein Potvin Group
    • Attn: Hope Klein
    • T: 212.680.5901
    • 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.

  • Planned Giving

    A Planned Gift is a decision to make a future gift, often specified in one’s estate plan. It can take the form of any traditional gift (such as cash or securities) and can be directed toward any Trevor program or initiative.
    For this reason, Planned Giving is often incorporated into one’s overall wealth management strategy, and included when creating one’s Will & Testament with personal Estate Planning.
    I have worked in the financial markets since 1995 and have a FINRA Series 65 qualification; this allows me to function as an investment advisor in the state of New York.
    I am happy to offer my services pro bono to Trevor community members. If you would ever like a second opinion on any of your wealth management decisions, I would be happy to share my professional thoughts with you.
    I would also be glad to help assist in your Planned Giving decisions with Trevor Day School. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
