Cash, Check, or Credit Card
Donations of cash are typically made via check or credit card. You may also make a gift now.  These donations are immediately available to the school and are tax deductible to the donor. You may also make a pledge by emailing Amela Hardie in the Advancement Office.

Please send checks to:
Town School for Boys
Advancement Office
2750 Jackson Street
San Francisco, CA 94115

Corporate Matching Gifts
Many corporations have programs that match, or multiply, employees’ donations to non-profit organizations. Please check with your employer about the availability of a matching gift program. When making a matching gift, please notify the Advancement Office by contacting Amela Hardie, Assistant Director of Advancement and Director of Alumni Engagement, 415-746-1112 or hardie@townschool.com.

Securities or Property
Gifts of appreciated securities or property enable many donors to realize tax advantages, enabling the donor to deduct the full value of the donated stock or property without incurring capital gain tax liability on the appreciated value. Please see the Gifts of Stock for instructions.  If you plan on making a gift of stock, please be sure to email Amela Hardie in the Advancement Office at hardie@townschool.com with information about the type of stock you are transferring so your gift is properly credited to you. Thank you!

Planned Giving
Many donors use planned giving as a method to make a more substantial gift to Town School, as well as to provide additional estate planning benefits or income tax benefits. Those who have included Town School in their estate plans or who have made a deferred gift become members of the Porta Aurea Society (named for the Golden Gate, taken from the school's motto).

Planned gifts include:
  • Making a bequest to Town School in your will
  • Making Town School the beneficiary of a retirement account or life insurance policy
  • Creating a charitable trust
  • Making a gift of real estate or other tangible property
If you plan on making a gift of stock, please be sure to email Amela Hardie in the Advancement Office at hardie@townschool.com with information about the type of stock you are transferring so your gift is properly credited to you. Thank you!
