Gifts of Stock

Stock that has appreciated in value is one of the most popular assets used to make charitable gifts, once it has been held for a minimum of a year. Making a gift of stock gives you an opportunity to realize tax benefits while supporting Pepin Academies’ mission to create a high intensity, low threat therapeutic learning community that celebrates the gifts of every student.

To initiate a gift of stock, instruct brokers to transfer securities for charitable contributions to Pepin Academies Foundation’s account at CSENGE Advisory Group by filling out our stock transfer form. Please notify Holly Lisle, Director of Development, of your intended transfer and to receive the stock transfer form. Holly can be reached at 863-397-5859 (cell) or [email protected].

Double Your Gift Through Corporate Match

Many companies offer matching-gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar - or more - and some offer payroll deductions to simplify giving. Check with your company’s Human Resources Department to find out if your company will match gifts to Pepin Academies Foundation.

In-Kind Gifts

We value and appreciate support in all forms. In-kind donations include non-cash items or services that are useful to Pepin Academies in many ways. If you are interested in providing an in-kind gift, please contact us to learn more about the needs of Pepin Academies campuses.
