A gift to the Lawrence Schools Foundation demonstrates your belief in our mission and reinforces your commitment to making a difference in the world. Many types of gifts allow you to fulfill your charitable intentions and may result in immediate and future benefits for you and your family.
Gifts of cash
Cash contributions are deductible as allowed by law as an itemized deduction in the year you make the donation, up to a total of 50% of your adjusted gross income.
Gifts of securities
The best stocks to donate are, generally, those that have increased in value and that you’ve held for more than one year, to avoid capital gains taxes. It is best that you donate the securities to us rather than liquidate them and donating the proceeds. Please contact us for transfer information.

Life income gifts
