Ways of Giving

Durham Academy welcomes gifts of all types.

Cash or Credit Cards

Donors may make gifts by cash, check or credit card. You may make your donation online using our secure Making A Gift Online form. If you would like to make a pledge and arrange for automatic monthly charges to your credit card, please contact Willetha Barnette-Colvin directly at willetha.colvin@da.org or 919-287-1706.

Gifts of Stock

If you contribute appreciated securities to Durham Academy, you receive a two-fold income tax benefit: a charitable deduction for the present fair market value and no capital gains tax on the appreciation.

Please contact Leslie Holdsworth at 919-489-6569, ext. 6148, or leslie.holdsworth@da.org for information needed to transfer stock to the Durham Academy account. See the Make a Gift of Stock page for details.

Matching Gifts

Talk with your employer about their matching gift program. They may be able to help you double or triple the amount of your contribution!

Honorary and Memorial Gifts

Gifts made in honor or memory of a student, faculty member, coach or friend are gratefully accepted.

Gifts of Real Estate

Donating property to Durham Academy allows you to avoid tax on the appreciation in value and receive a current charitable deduction on your income taxes.

Bequests

Remembering Durham Academy in your will through a charitable bequest reduces the amount of your estate that is subject to estate tax.

Charitable Trusts

When you create a charitable remainder trust, you guarantee a gift to DA in the future. In return, you receive both an annual income from the assets you use to fund the trust and an immediate tax deduction. A charitable lead trust works the opposite way. DA receives an annual income stream from the trust assets for a period of time, then the remainder goes to your heirs.

Durham Academy's gift year ends June 30, but you may want to contribute by Dec. 31 to take advantage of current year tax benefits.
