Make a Gift

Donating appreciated securities is a good way to make a gift to Miss Porter's School. If you own stock or mutual fund shares that have appreciated in value, you can give these shares to the school and not have to pay any capital gain tax on your “paper profit.” And you can take a federal income tax charitable deduction for the full appreciated value of the securities, subject to some limitations, if you have held them for more than one year.


Please contact our Manager, Database and Gift Services at (860) 409-3625 or giftadmin@missporters.org if you would like to donate securities.


Miss Porter’s School will credit the gift at the mean value on the day of irrevocable transfer to our account. Miss Porter's School is a 501(c)(3) organization. Our Federal Tax ID is 06-0646786.
