How to Give

List of 9 frequently asked questions.

  • - Cash Contributions

    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:

    Weston, MA 02493
  • - Credit Card Gifts/Pledges by Phone

    Call 781-642-8645 during business hours; we’ll process your gift securely. For security reasons, please do
    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.
  • - Securities

    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.
  • - IRA Transfers

    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.
  • - Matching Gifts

    More than 1,000 corporations, foundations and other organizations will match their employees's 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!
  • - Gifts of Stock

    A donation of securities and closely held stocks is another way to make a sizable charitable contribution to CSW, while realizing valuable tax benefits.
