Giving Opportunities

In addition to gifts made by check, cash, or credit card to The Fund for Bishop Kenny High School there are other opportunities available to donors who want to make an impact on the life of our school.  While all gifts to BKHS are tax deductible, some options offer the donor additional tax benefits.  Others gifts meet estate planning goals.  If you would like to discuss one of these options, or have an alternative gift in mind, please contact Sheila Marovich, Director of Advancement at 398-7545 or advancement@bishopkenny.org to discuss your goals.

Named Scholarships

A full or partial annual scholarship to Bishop Kenny High School directly impacts the life of a student and their family.  By providing a scholarship you are opening the door for a student to take advantage of all that BK has to offer. Whether you are paying back or paying forward, a scholarship to BK will make a lifelong difference for the recipient.

Gifts of Stock
Common stock or other securities can be gifted to Bishop Kenny High School.  Gifts of appreciated securities may interest donors who have held stock and have seen its value increase significantly.  An outright gift of appreciated securities is exempt from capital gains tax and, in most cases; the full fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer can be claimed as a charitable gift deduction. For official tax purpose verification please check with your tax advisor.  Contact Sheila Marovich, Director of Advancement to arrange for the sale of stock for the benefit of BKHS through the Diocese of St. Augustine.

Bequests
A gift can be outlined in your will or added as a codicil. This allows you to perpetuate your personal dedication and remember the good works of Bishop Kenny High School for the benefit of future generations.  You can leave a percentage of your estate, the residue of your estate, identified property or leave a specific dollar amount.  Please seek the advice of your attorney and/or financial planner regarding arrangements for a planned gift today.
