A charitable gift of appreciated stock may provide an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting Kirby. It is not our position to offer tax or legal advice. Before you make a gift of stock or mutual funds — particularly a significant gift — be sure to talk with your professional financial advisor to determine how such a gift may affect your overall financial plan, and consult your tax advisor for more detailed information about the tax consequences of your gift. For more information on giving a gift of stock, please contact Sandie Shoemaker at 831.423.0658 x224.
If you already purchase from Amazon, try AmazonSmile the next time you shop. A percentage of what you spend can be designated to go to helping Kirby. The AmazonSmile Foundation gives a percentage (0.5%) of your purchase to a charity of your choice–Kirby School. Just be sure to designate Georgiana Bruce Kirby Preparatory School when you shop.
