Ways to Give | Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School

Ways to Give


Cash Gifts support our annual Fund for SJND campaign. Donations to the school are welcomed at any time during the school year. Cash donations can be made by check (made out to Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School), Visa, or MasterCard. Donations can also be made using our secure, online system. 


You may make a commitment to SJND payable over three to five years. This may allow you to give more generously over a period of time than would be possible through a single contribution. Contact the Advancement Office at (510) 995-9456 to learn more about making a pledge.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Double Your Gift!

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer's name below:

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to SJND may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Stock and Securities

Donations of stock can offer considerable tax advantages for many donors and are quite simple to execute. In most cases, the full market value of the securities can be deducted. For instructions on how to make a gift of stock, please use the Stock Transfer Form, or contact Mollie McFarland at 510-995-9456.

Planned Giving

Join SJND's Heritage Circle. Beyond supporting Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School's mission, and creating a lasting legacy, there are decided tax advantages to making a planned gift. Planned and deferred gifts, through appreciated stock, bonds, real property, bequests, trusts and insurance provide mutually beneficial giving opportunities. If you have already included SJND in your estate plans, please let us know so that we may honor you as a member of the Heritage Circle.

Endowed Gifts

Endowed gifts offer a lasting tribute to the school and may be designated to a specific program and named for an honoree. Some of these gifts evolved from the passing of an alumnus or other loved ones, as a legacy and promise to future generations that Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School will remain prepared to develop confident, open minded, effective leaders ready to live lives of faith scholarship and service.

Named funds, both endowed and current-use, are established with a minimum investment of $50,000 and provide a lasting symbol of the bond between SJND and those who are permanently honored. SJND is proud to uphold the legacy of these individuals and families.

Contact Assistant Principal of Advancement, Mollie McFarland, (510) 995-9456, mmcfarland@sjnd.org, to honor your loved ones with a named or endowed fund that will benefit future generations of Pilots.

Gifts In-Kind

An in-kind gift can be given to SJND for immediate benefit, which in turn is used throughout campus or for special events (auction/raffle). Gifts range from computers, file cabinets, weekend cabins, airline miles, and goods and/or services for use as auction/raffle prizes.

Tax Free IRA Contribution

If you are aged 70 ½ or older, you can make a gift from your IRA (traditional or Roth) to SJND on a tax-free basis. Gifts of up to $100,000 will remain tax-free if transferred by your IRA administrator directly to the school. Your gift to SJND will count toward your IRA-required minimum distribution and will be excluded from your gross taxable income. To notify the school of your intentions, mail us this IRA donation form letter.
