Contributing appreciated securities to BJP is an ideal way to make a gift. If the security has been held for at least one year, the donor may be eligible for an income tax deduction of the full market value. In addition, the donor may avoid any capital gains tax. Please consult your tax adviser for information regarding your own personal situation.
If you want to donate securities, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get the instructions and to let us know about the gift in advance.
Please check with your employer to see if your company matches charitable contributions. Matching gifts are a welcome way to help BJP obtain additional funds.
If you shop on Amazon, go to Smile.Amazon.com when you shop and select Brooklyn Jesuit Prep as the charity to benefit from your purchases. Amazon will give BJP a percentage of the money you spend online. You can use your Amazon user i.d. and password on Smile.Amazon.
Box Tops for Education
You can cut out “box tops” from select products and send them to the school secretary. Each box top is worth ten cents to BJP. Find out more about this program by going to the website: boxtops4education.com.
Required Minimum Distribution
If you are 70 and ½ years old or older, you are required to withdraw a “required minimum distribution” from your IRAs each year. You can satisfy all or part of that requirement by giving up to $100,000 from your IRA directly to a qualified charity like Brooklyn Jesuit Prep. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your deductions.
We need volunteers to tutor students, work in the school library, organize extracurricular programs in cooking, the arts, music, double-dutch, sports and more. Most tutoring and other volunteer opportunities occur during the school day between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. Study halls are always in the afternoon. However, we run a Saturday Tutoring Program on one Saturday a month and welcome adult volunteers to participate in that program.
If you are interested in offering your services, please send an email to email@example.com and let us know your availability.
We welcome in-kind donations that help us stretch our budget dollars. We always need art supplies and sports equipment. We welcome your inquiries if you have office furniture or other items to donate. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (718) 638-5884. test
SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. EVERY DOLLAR RAISED IS IMPORTANT TO BJP.
