Gifts to the Annual Fund help to bridge the gap between monies received from tuition and the actual cost of providing education for our 950 students. These are the gifts that keep our tuition increases below the nation's cost of living index. Those who are looking for "bang for the buck" need look no further than the Prep's Annual Fund.
To transfer stock electronically
Gifts in any amount may be made to the Prep’s General Scholarship Fund. This Fund is a central resource that the President and the Director of Financial Aid may draw from to address the needs and merits of individual students.
Gifts in the amount of the current rate of tuition (Tuition for the 2011-2012 academic year is $15,820) will ensure that a worthy but needy student can attend Fordham Prep for one full year.
Gifts in the amount of $25,000 and more will serve to establish a named scholarship fund that will provide an annual award to a deserving student in the name of the donor, or a person the donor wishes to have remembered or otherwise honored. The amount of the award will vary with the earnings of the fund and considerations of merit and need.
Gifts in the amount of $300,000 will serve to endow a full scholarship in perpetuity at Fordham Prep. Endowed scholarships are the most prestigious awards that the Prep can make. Only students who give evidence of abiding financial need and certified academic promise can be the recipients of funds from one of the Prep’s fully endowed scholarships.
Making a Gift of Securities
Gifts of appreciated marketable securities afford donors an attractive means of giving to Fordham Prep. Donors receive a tax deduction for the market value of the securities they give to Fordham Prep, computed on the day of their transfer, while avoiding payment of capital gains on the stock's appreciated value. It is the policy of Fordham Prep to sell all gifts of stock as soon as they have served the donor's purposes. Donors of stock are encouraged to consult their brokers or advisors.
