Methods of Giving

Cash, Check or Credit Card Contributions
Cash gifts — which are essential to the School's Annual Fund, Restoration Project, and Scholarship Funds — are fully tax-deductible (for those who itemize) and provide the most convenient form of giving. Checks should be made payable to St. John Villa Academy and can be sent to:
St. John Villa Academy - Development Office
57 Cleveland Place - Staten Island, NY 10305

To use your credit card to make a donation, please contact the Development Office at (718) 447-4150 x 130 or 171. You can also make a donation by utilizing the GIVE NOW button on our homepage which will take you to a secure website.

Matching GIfts
Many businesses offer a Matching Gift program for their employees to double their charitable donations. If your employer is a participant, please obtain the necessary forms needed to process the donation. For more information, please call the Development Office at (718) 447-4150 x 130 or 171.

To establish a pledge to contribute to a particular campaign or fund, please contact the Development Office at (718) 447-4150 x 130, to arrange a flexible payment schedule that will best suit your financial needs.

Memorial and Tributary Gifts
Contributions can be given in memory or in honor of a special individual or occasion. Letters of acknowledgment will be promptly sent to intended individuals or family informing them of your gift. The amount of the gift is not disclosed.

If you hold securities which would result in a long-term capital gain if sold, you can make an outright gift to St. John Villa Academy and realize substantial savings on capital gains tax of the appreciation. Thus, the actual cost to you as a donor is often far less than the value of your gift to the school. It is recommended that you consult with your tax advisor to discuss the latest IRS rules and regulations.

Personal Property
A gift of real estate, artwork, or other appreciated property will most likely result in significant capital gains tax savings to the donor. Please call the Development Office at 1-718-447-4150 ext 130 for further information.
