Whether by check, credit card, securities, real estate or personal property, your gift to CSW provides key support to students and faculty. Every gift counts, and we thank you!
Direct cash gifts are the most common form of giving and can be unrestricted or designated. Gifts through the Annual Fund can be allocated to CSW’s greatest needs, scholarship, faculty or athletics. Gifts can also be restricted to a specific project, program or department. Cash gifts may be made outright or used to fund a life income vehicle; they are tax-deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
If you wish to mail your gift, please send a check made out to The Cambridge School of Weston to:

Credit Card Gift/Pledge by Phone

not leave your credit card information on voice mail or include it in an e-mail message. You can also make
your gift online 24 hours a day.
Outright gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) are tax-deductible at full fair-
market value if the donor has owned the asset for at least 12 months. To avoid capital gains taxes, you
must provide the securities themselves, not the proceeds of their sale.
Gifts of closely held stock (usually stock in a family-owned business) also carry benefits for the donor. The
stock must have been held for at least 12 months for you to claim a charitable deduction at full fair market
value. If the deduction exceeds $10,000, a qualified appraisal is required for tax purposes.
If you are 70 and 6 months years of age or older, you can make a gift directly from your IRA to CSW and it
will count against your minimum required distribution.
More than 1,000 corporations, foundations and other organizations will match their employees' charitable
contributions either dollar-for- dollar, or at a ratio of 2-to- 1, 3-to- 1 or even 4-to- 1. Contact your Human
Resources Office to find out if your gift to CSW can go further with a matching gift!
