Tribute and Memorial Gifts

Honor someone special – a teacher, coach, alumnus or friend by making a memorial or tribute gift in his or her name to Germantown Academy. With your gift, you may celebrate those whose memories fill your heart or whose presence fills your life. For birthdays, anniversaries, remembrances, or "just because," your donation in someone's honor is a wonderful way to express your admiration while making a difference at GA. For more information, contact the .

Gifts of Stock

Transferring a gift of appreciated securities may be advantageous in two ways: income taxes could be reduced, and capital gains taxes are avoided. The value of your gift for tax purposes is the mean value of the securities on the date that the shares leave your brokerage account. An official tax receipt will be mailed to the donor after Germantown Academy receives the stock gift.

Before transferring stock to Germantown Academy, please send notification to Meg Peake or call 267-405-7503 with the 1) donor name and 2) name and quantity of securities being transferred.

Gifts of Appreciated Securities

Outright gifts of appreciated securities may entitle the donor to a double tax benefit: the donor does not recognize capital gain on the transaction and may take a current income tax charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the asset (up to 30% of adjusted gross income, with a five-year carry-over of any unused deduction). CLICK HERE for instructions on how to transfer stock to Germantown Academy.


If you are not ready to make your cash gift, you can pledge your commitment to GA to be paid prior to the end of the fiscal year (June 30). CLICK HERE to set up your pledge. 

Gifts of Real Property

Germantown Academy can benefit from gifts of all types of real property, such as a residence, a vacation home, a farm or commercial property, or undeveloped land. Donation of real property to GA can substantially reduce federal and state income tax liability as well as provide an immediate solution to marketing problems, eliminate carrying costs and remove the property from your gross taxable estate. A gift of property to GA would entitle you to a charitable deduction for the property's fair market value. Your deduction is limited to 30% of your adjusted gross income, with a five-year carry-over for any excess. Contact Martin Dean if you are interested in learning more.
