IRA Charitable Rollover

Newton Country Day School alumnae and friends who have reached age 70.5 can take advantage of charitable IRA distributions each year. A direct transfer of up to $100,000 from an individual retirement account to Newton Country Day School does not incur federal income tax and can be counted toward an individual's Required Minimum Distribution each year. These gifts do not qualify for a charitable deduction. For more information, please contact Elena Loukas, Director of Development at (617) 559-4733.

Recurring Gift

There are two ways to set up a recurring gift; using your credit card through our secure giving form or through your bank's Online Bill Pay. Find more information about our Recurring Gift program here. 

Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine tax benefits while supporting the School. 

Matching Gifts

Many companies match charitable contributions. Matching gifts can double or even triple the size of your gift. To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, contact your Human Resources Department or use the search bar below.

 

 

Planned Giving

In 1993, Newton Country Day School established the Founders' Society to recognize those who remember the School in their estate plans. The following are the two most common ways to support NCDS in your estate plans:

  • Bequests - A charitable bequest through your will is one of the simplest ways to make a gift to Newton Country Day School. Bequests may be a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or a gift of personal property. You may support areas important to you at the School or provide an unrestricted gift that will be used in Newton's best interest.
  • Beneficiary designations - By naming Newton Country Day School as a full or partial beneficiary of your life insurance policy, IRA, 401(k), or other qualified plan, you will have a significant impact on Newton's future as well as have the asset pass to the School tax free.

Volunteering

Throughout the academic year, there are multiple ways to become involved. Time commitment varies; from as little as an hour to a deeper dedication of time. For more information, parents can contact Elena Loukas, Director of Development at x4733. Alumnae can contact Amanda Power '07, Director of Alumnae Relations at x4731

The most valuable gift a young girl can be given is the courage and confidence to be herself, and there is no place that instills this self-assurance as successfully as Newton Country Day. ”Christina Neckerman ’15, Harvard University '19
