Recurring Gifts

Shorecrest provides the opportunity for you to make monthly or yearly gifts—without needing any reminders! Recurring gifts can also maximize the impact of your generosity. Schedule recurring gifts using our online giving form.

Pledges

Plan your annual gift of $1,000+ dollars by making a pledge of support and scheduling your payment(s) for a later date. We do encourage donors to first consider a recurring gift instead of a pledge—allowing them to maximize their gift’s impact.

For those donors that would like to make a pledge, please contact Laina Bennett or Michael Gillis with your pledge details. Reminders will be sent from the Advancement Office in December, March and May and will cease after receipt of your final pledge payment. 

All pledges must be paid by the last day of school year.

To make a pledge payment online, please visit www.shorecrest.org/give.

Gifts-in-Kind

Before donating an item to Shorecrest Preparatory School, please ensure that you have obtained written approval from  the Advancement Office. Please fill out this form for approval of Gifts-in-Kind.

List of 3 items.

  • Tax Information

    According to the IRS, it is the donor's responsibility to fill out the receipt and assess the donation's value. For more information, read IRS Publication 526 for an explanation on the types of contributions you can deduct, how much you can deduct, what records to keep, and how to report charitable contributions.
  • Determining the Value of Donated Items (IRS Pub 561)

    The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires donors to value their items. IRS Publication 561 defines “fair market value” and helps donors and appraisers determine the value of property given to qualified organizations. It also explains what kind of information you must have to support the charitable contribution deduction you claim on your return.
  • Documents Required by the IRS for Tax Reporting

    Property worth $500 or less: You must justify the deduction with the receipt provided by  Shorecrest Preparatory School. The receipt should include the donor's name, address, date, and a list of items donated.

    Property worth more than $500, but not more than $5,000: In addition to the receipt provided by Shorecrest Preparatory School, you are required to complete IRS Form 8283, "Non-Cash Charitable Contribution." This form will contain written records of how the property was acquired, and your cost basis if the property was held less than 12 months. Also, if you are claiming one item is worth $500 or more, you must have the item appraised, and save the certificate of appraisal with the receipt in your tax records. Appraisals should be done before items are donated and payment of the appraisal is the responsibility of the donor.

    A single item valued at $5,000 or more, or several similar items donated in a single year whose value totals $5,000 or more: This donation must be appraised before the donation is made, and the appraisal must be obtained by the donor.  Shorecrest Preparatory School does not perform appraisals on any donations.
