Your Gift Matters

When you give to Pomfret, you are directly supporting our mission to cultivate a healthy interdependence of mind, body, and spirit in our students.

Pomfret is supported by alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends in many ways. At whatever level, your generosity is essential to the Pomfret Experience. Today, research confirms what used to be common sense – that great teachers, supported by great facilities and resources, boosts student achievement, inspires promising career paths, and provides a basis for the kind of leadership we so desperately need in the 21st century. Your contribution makes it possible for Pomfret students to gain an exceptional education that will prepare them for college and life. Thank you!

Gift of Stock

A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year is frequently the most economical way to give. You will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.

When making an outright gift of stock, a donor typically transfers the stock to Pomfret. In order to determine the value, Pomfret will use the mean sale price on the day it comes into our possession as the appraised value, and we will provide the donor with the appropriate charitable income tax deduction letter.
