End of Year Giving

In celebration of our 35th anniversary, our exciting Annual Fund “35 Years, 35 Days, $350K!” is still going strong.

A year-end, tax-deductible gift to Seacrest, 501(c)3 non-profit, is an intelligent investment. View the 2016-2017 Annual Report (included in the Seacrest Magazine).

Graciously accepted gifts include:

  • Cash, check, or credit card
  • Wire Transfers
  • Matching Gifts
  • Appreciated Securities – This is a popular alternative way to give a cash gift because it avoids capital gains tax on securities held long-term and provides an income tax deduction equal to the fair-market value at the date of transfer. If you would like to use this option, please contact Cindy Weir, Director of Institutional Advancement at cweir@seacrest.org.

Thanks to your generous donations we are more than halfway toward reaching our Annual Fund goal. Your support makes a real, lasting impact on the lives of Seacrest students today and prepares them to lead lives of significance tomorrow.

General Giving

Just as we ask our students to engage in their experience here at Seacrest, we also ask each of our families to play an active role in our community. Because independent schools such as Seacrest operate without government funds, it is important to raise additional money each year, apart from tuition, to continue offering our students an exceptional learning environment. In addition to tuition, parents are asked to invest in the growth and enhancement of Seacrest through annual giving and special events.

In addition to monetary gifts, our active parent body graciously gives their time to a number of activities and events on campus. Seacrest would not be the inclusive and exciting community it is without the participation of our families in the lives of their children and the life of our school. The information below will help introduce you to some of the inherent differences and the particular responsibilities of independent school parents.

The Annual Fund

Each year in the fall, Seacrest asks every member of its community to make a gift to the school's Annual Fund. The foundation for giving at all independent schools, an annual fund supports the school's operating budget, providing support for our programs, faculty excellence, facilities, and additional opportunities for our students to have an educational experience that serves them best. To learn more, visit www.seacrest.org/giving/annualfund.

Special Events

Seacrest hosts two major fundraisers throughout the year- the Auction and the Stingray Golf Tournament. The Auction is an exciting event designed to bring together our community in one evening of community, in support of our School. A live and silent auction, cash call, a wine raffle, sponsorships, donations and ticket sales are ways in which families. individuals and businesses can participate.

The Stingray Golf Tournament is the athletic department's primary fundraiser. Held each year at a beautiful course in Naples, the tournament raises money to support our student-athletes and coaches.

Volunteering

A truly inclusive community, Seacrest derives its strength from the people who comprise our family. The generosity of our community through monetary donations and through the gift of volunteerism enables us to continue to offer a unique education that can only be found at Seacrest. Parents are encouraged to be present on campus, and are given many opportunities to volunteer in and out of the classroom. In addition to assisting with special events, the Seacrest Parent Association is a great resource for parents wanting to contribute to their child's school.

Capital Giving

Occasionally Seacrest may embark on a capital campaign, asking parents to make a restricted gift to the building or renovating of facilities. Capital campaigns are exciting times for the school as strategic campus planning is realized and achieved, offering our students better and more up-to-date spaces and resources to learn. In addition to the Annual Fund, parents are encouraged to participate in capital giving for each year of the campaign.

Restricted Giving

A restricted gift is a donation of money, goods or services directed to a specific area or for a specific purpose, outside of the operating budget. This includes scholarship, equipment or materials, and more. If you are interested in making a restricted gift, contact Cindy Weir, Director of Institutional Advancement at cweir@seacrest.org.

Planned Giving

Supporters of Seacrest Country Day School can choose to plan their giving through recurring gifts or legacy giving. Recurring gifts is an easy and convenient way of establishing your annual fund gift years at a time. The Advancement Office will work with you to provide Seacrest with a reliable source of funding year after year.

Legacy gifts are the ultimate dedication to our school. Planned giving involves providing for Seacrest in your financial and estate plans. Bequests, trusts, retirement fund gifts, life insurance, real estate and stock are all mediums in which planned gifts can be made.

Corporate Match Gifts

Many corporations sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by the employee. These programs are a great way for companies to support education and a chance for your gift to be doubled, or even tripled. If you have questions regarding corporate match gifts, contact Cindy Weir, Director of Institutional Advancement, at cweir@seacrest.org.
