Ways to Give
Your financial gifts to the LPS Foundation will amplify student and educator success in each of our neighborhood schools.
Support our work by making a secure, online donation today.
Help more students reach their potential by setting up your recurring gift today. Monthly donations are easy, automatic, and convenient. You can change, suspend, or cancel your gift at any time.
There are so many ways to use your investments for good when you donate to the LPS Foundation. We accept stock appreciation gifts, monies from a donor-advised fund, qualified charitable donations and planned gifts.
A charitable gift of appreciated stock can be advantageous for you and the LPS Foundation. As long as you’ve owned the stock for more than a year, you can donate shares directly to the LPS Foundation and may be able to avoid paying capital gains taxes. Win/win.
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account. It provides flexibility and convenience by allowing you to make a deductible contribution today and invest your contribution so it can potentially grow tax-free over time.
If you are 70 ½ or older, you can give to a nonprofit organization via a qualified charitable distribution (QCD). QCDs can be counted toward satisfying your required minimum distributions (RMDs) for the year, reducing your tax liability.
A legacy gift gives you the chance to have a significant impact without expending any resources today. Contact Beth Best, Executive Director at 303-347-3478 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about leaving a legacy for LPS students.
Donations can be subject to certain restrictions, so please check with a tax advisor for specifics. This is not tax advice so consult with your tax advisor before implementing any of these strategies.
