We center each school year’s endeavors around a virtue or idea, choosing friendship as this year’s unifying theme. The theme guides our weekly Assembly speeches and centers our activities. As we explore the theme of friendship this year, we welcome your support in gifts, prayers, and visits.

Appreciated Stock Donation
Donations of appreciated securities are recorded as a charitable gift at the appreciated amount. In most cases, the donor will receive a greater tax benefit than if the appreciated securities are sold and the cash is donated. Also, by donating appreciated securities you can avoid recording a capital gain in the security (assuming the investment has appreciated and that you have held the asset for more than one year). You should check with a tax professional before initiating any transfer of securities.
Donated securities can be sent to our account:
First Republic Investment Management
1230 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY 10020
Beneficiary: The Geneva School of Manhattan
Beneficiary Account Number: 33L395671
DTC Number: 0443 (clearing through Pershing LLC)
Upon transfer of stock, please contact our Finance Manager so we can complete the stock sale.
It is never too early to think about estate-related giving. Not only does a legacy gift reduce your taxable estate, but it ensures ongoing, planned giving that will benefit future generations of Geneva School students. The most common forms of legacy gifts include bequeathing a gift from your estate and naming Geneva School as a beneficiary of your retirement accounts and/or life insurance policies. If you are interested in making Geneva School part of your family's estate plan, please contact our Director of Advancement and your personal attorney to coordinate the paperwork.
Many opportunities exist—both one-time and ongoing—for parents and grandparents to volunteer at Geneva School. By giving of your time and abilities, you will help our School achieve its mission while experiencing first hand what sets Geneva School apart. Volunteering is also a great way to get to know other parents, faculty, and staff while making a lasting impact on the School. If you are interested in giving your time, resources, and talents to the School, we would enjoy hearing from you. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the School office at 212.754.9988.
