Honorary and Memorial Gifts

If you wish to honor or memorialize a loved one or another individual with a gift to the school, please indicate the name of person you wish to honor or memorialize when making your gift. A receipt will be sent to you for the gift, and the honoree or family of the memorialized individual will be notified of your donation.

Matching Gifts

Many employers are willing to match donations to Harbor Country Day School, which is a wonderful way to increase the impact of your gift. If your employer or your spouse's employer has a matching gift program, please indicate this when making your gift. You may enclose the employer's matching gift form with your gift. If you do not have a form, please contact the employer's human resources department for more information.

Online

Making an online gift to Harbor Country Day School is easy. Simply visit the secure payment gateway at the Online Giving page on our website. VISA, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted. Your generous gift will be acknowledged electronically, and the school also will send you a written acknowledgement for tax purposes.

Please note: Online gifts made via credit card are subject to a processing fee imposed by credit card companies of between three and five percent of the donation amount; this fee is charged to Harbor. In other words, your net gift is less than the amount you are contributing. To help ease the financial burden on Harbor, we would be so grateful if you would consider adding a small amount to your gift to help Harbor defer the cost of these fees. The full amount of your gift, including this additional amount, will be considered a donation to Harbor Country Day.


Pledges

If you would like to make a gift to Harbor Country Day School but are not in a position to do so right now, please contact the Advancement Office at (631) 584-5555 to phone in a pledge. If possible, indicate when you plan on making your gift to Harbor, and we will send you a friendly reminder. Pledges also may be made in the school office.

If you are pledging to the Harbor Fund, you may also mail your pledge, in a Harbor Fund envelope, to the address below. Harbor Fund pledges for the current campaign year must be paid by June 30th, but the sooner the gift is made, the sooner the donation goes to work for the school.

Securities/Stock

A gift of securities or stock is an alternative to a cash gift to Harbor. It provides for an income tax deduction for the giver equal to the fair market value of the securities/stock at the date of transfer. Gifts of appreciated securities can provide great advantages.
