WAYS TO GIVE
There are many ways to give to Brother Rice High School, all which have a positive tax impact on the donor. While every donor should seek professional tax advice as to the extent of the positive tax treatment they would reap as a result of making a gift to Brother Rice, the tax code is clearly supportive to both donors and charitable institutions. The following are general giving categories by which you can make a gift to Brother Rice High School.

Cash or Check: Mail to the Office of Advancement at Brother Rice High School, 7101 Lahser Road, Bloomfield Hills MI 48301. You may bring cash donations to our finance office. Donations may be given over a one or multi-year period. The Advancement Office will help you with a plan that suits your needs.
Matching Gifts Many companies match contributions made by an employee or their spouse. The donor is acknowledged for the original gift plus the amount of the match. Please check with your human resources department to determine if your company participates in a matching gifts program then obtain the proper forms to send to our Advancement Office.
IRA Distribution Recently signed legislation, Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act, permanently extends the IRA Charitable Rollover Provision. The provision allows individuals who have reached age 70 1/2 to donate up to $100,000 to charitable organizations directly from their Individual Retirement Account (IRA), without treating the distribution as taxable income.
Planned Giving Brother Rice recognizes those who support our vision for the future by including the school in their estate plans as members of the Blessed Edmund Rice Legacy Society of 1802. We welcome individuals who make gifts through bequests, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, real-estate, or retirement assets. Please contact Tom Reidy for more information or to inform us that Brother Rice is remembered in your estate.
Securities: By transferring appreciated stock, bonds, or property, a donor may receive a substantial tax savings. By making an appreciated security gift to the school, a donor may avoid capital gains tax possibly resulting in a complete tax deduction for the gift’s full market value. Click here for form.
