Ways To Give
Monetary gifts can be given by cash, check or credit card. The RMAE Foundation has an online donation form that can be accessed by clicking here. Alternatively, the Foundation has installed a lockbox in the school’s main office where donations can be left.
Donate Stock or Gifts of Appreciated Assets: Many donors are in a position to donate funds from a brokerage account. There can be a distinct tax advantage for you to to donate appreciated stock directly to RMAE Foundation instead of liquidating the stock and donating cash. Please check with your financial advisor and/or CPA because generally you can deduct the full value of the appreciated stock, not pay capital gains on the appreciated amount and RMAE Foundation then receives the full value – not an after tax cash amount.

IRA Distributions can be gifted to RMAE and reduce your income taxes or increase the amount you are able to donate to a qualified charity. IRA owners over the age of 70 ½ years of age can donate distributions directly to RMAE. While you won’t get a tax deduction for your charitable gift, the IRA distribution would be excluded from your taxable income and would count toward your annual required minimum, distribution (RMD).
Matching Gift Programs may be available through your employer—doubling, even tripling your support. Check now to see if your company offers such a program by searching this matching gift database or contact your human resources department.
Gifts-In-Kind are non-monetary items of tangible personal property such as art, books, equipment, and other personal assets or materials that represent value to RMAE. RMAE reserves the right to determine the Gift-in-Kind donations they will accept. Gift-in-kind donations can be submitted to the front office. Click here to see the current wish list.
Sponsorship allows you to underwrite some of the costs for our most important school needs. We are constantly striving to create more space to accommodate our growing need and strategic plan. But you can help! Check with the front office regarding sponsorship opportunities.
