Other Ways to Give

Explore your different options for supporting Steward students.

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts are the simplest and easiest gifts you can make, whether through credit/debit card transactions, outright cash, or personal checks made payable to The Steward School. Your bank can even set up automatic monthly payments to make giving easier.

Matching Gifts

Many gifts to Steward can be doubled, or even tripled, because many employers match gifts made to non-profit organizations by their employees and retirees. To learn if your company matches gifts, click here.

Gifts of Securities

Gifts of securities offer significant tax advantages to the donor. By making a gift of this type, the donor can take a tax deduction for the full market value of the securities, while avoiding capital gains taxes. This is an easy way to make a philanthropic contribution that benefits the school and the donor. 

Stock Transfer Instructions

You may gift securities that you hold directly to The Steward School. Securities may be transferred electronically to Davenport and Company, LLC (DTC #0715); Attention of Mary Claire Motley at (804) 780-2103, and The Steward School Account #8075-8425. As a reminder, gifts to The Steward School, a 501(c)(3) organization, are tax-deductible as permitted by law. No goods or services will be provided to the donor as a result of their gift. Prior to making your gift, please notify Shawn Morrison in The Steward School Development Office at (804) 565-2306 or Shawn.Morrison@stewardschool.org.

Gifts In-Kind

In-kind gifts are contributions of tangible items that the school would otherwise have to purchase. Examples of in-kind gifts donated to Steward recently include valuable works of art, printers, athletic equipment and uniforms, photography equipment, and other school supplies.

Planned Gifts

Some donors wish to make deferred gifts in their estate plans or philanthropic gifts that may provide tax reduction opportunities. These gifts are referred to as “planned giving.” The Development Office has a complete planned giving brochure which can be provided upon request.

Shop and Share Program

If you shop at Martin’s, Kroger, or Amazon, your purchases could directly benefit The Steward School…it’s as simple as 1-2-3! 1) The next time you shop at these stores, be sure to register your loyalty card at the customer service desk or complete the process online. 2) Shop! Your purchases will automatically be connected to Steward, which will receive a portion of your dollars spent. 3) Steward says, “Thanks for your support!” For more information click here.

Steward is an atmosphere that fosters confidence—something we have seen in all three of our kids. Whether it is playing a new sport, running for a seat on the Honor Council, or singing a solo on Talent Night, they have been encouraged to try, to experience, and to grow.

Steward Voices

Steward helped me develop the skills I needed to succeed in college and the courage and confidence to set competitive career goals for myself. But, these skills weren’t lessons I learned just in Steward’s classrooms; they came from the athletic fields, in the hallways, and during Honor Council meetings, too.
- Grace Henderson ’10

Steward provides Andrew with a nurturing environment which fosters his individualism, develops exemplary character traits, and continuously provides him with creative learning experiences. Consequently, Andrew ‘loves’ school and anticipates each day with joy, enthusiasm, and excitement.
