Capital Giving

Capital Giving

Capital Giving has the power to transform an institution by building community and igniting innovation. Whether funding essential facilities like The Mike Murphy Experiential School and Charger Commons, or renovating current spaces to best fit our current needs — capital gifts ensure that Shorecrest remains strong for generations to come.

Support for Shorecrest’s capital campaigns are opportunities for donors to create a lasting legacy. Many donors choose to honor or memorialize a family member, friend, or teacher through the naming of buildings and spaces. 

If you would like to make a Capital Gift to Shorecrest that is meaningful to both you and the school, or if you are interested in learning more about transformational giving at Shorecrest, please contact Michael Gillis, Director of Advancement, at or 727-456-7514. 

501c(3) Status

Shorecrest Preparatory School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation as defined by the IRS, which means that all gifts to Shorecrest are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Visit the IRS website for more information.
