Recurring gifts are an extremely convenient way to donate to the school. This option allows you to transfer a specified amount to the school from your bank account or credit card at regular intervals. The benefits of recurring gifts are two-fold: you do not have to remember to take action during each of your preferred donation periods, and the school is able to plan more accurately for potential uses of your gift. If you would like to set up a recurring gift to the school, please notify Kelly van Lingen (603) 779-5220.

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.
How does it work?
Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program
Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free)
Recommend grants to qualified public charities of your choice
