Greenhills should be open to, and as affordable as possible for, all qualified students. Donors' tax-deductible gifts in support of the school's programs, faculty, facilities and financial aid join with tuition to sustain the one-of-a-kind impact of Greenhills for students from all walks of life.
In 1968, Greenhills opened our doors to 64 students. Today, approximately 520 students in grades 6-12 traverse our halls. As we celebrate 50 years of extraordinary education, we stand upon the foundation of our past and reach toward our future.
Extraordinary: A Greenhills Education
Lasting relationships define the Greenhills School experience. Stemming from a deep commitment to helping students reach their full potential, faculty, families, and the students themselves work together to create a positive and collaborative learning environment. By supporting our young people through their challenges and celebrating their achievements, bonds are formed here that will endure for a lifetime.
Your tax-deductible contribution to the 2017-18 Annual Fund for Greenhills joins with tuition to place promising futures within reach for our students every day, and in so many ways.
In the classroom, the theater, on the athletic field, or in the community beyond our campus, your giving helps:
Your giving supports a student centered environment and Greenhills School’s continuing legacy. Small classes allow our faculty to fully engage in the art of teaching as they mentor, coach and encourage each student. Today’s students thank you, and your generosity sets an important example for them to follow. Someday, they will help continue the legacy.
Please consider Greenhills in your estate plans. Gifts by bequest are simple to execute and, with Greenhills’ 501(c)(3) IRS status as an educational institution, there may ultimately be a reduction in estate taxes.
Greenhills alums and parents can designate the School to receive a specific amount of money, property or percentage of their estate; to receive all or a portion of the residual of your estate (the remainder after all specific bequests to family and friends are fulfilled); or to be the contingent beneficiary.
A gift by bequest might be worded: “I give, devise and bequest to Greenhills School for its general purposes all (or state fraction or percentage) of the rest, residue and remainder of my estate, both real and personal” or “I give, devise and bequeath to Greenhills School the sum of $_____ to be used for the general purpose of the school.” Your bequest to Greenhills can also take the form of cash, securities, real estate or other tangible personal property.
This gift option may provide reduced taxes to your estate. We recommend that donors consult with tax counsel or their legal adviser prior to finalizing a bequest or major gift other than cash or securities.
Donors are encouraged to meet with a member of the Advancement Team before designating bequest gifts to specific programs, for current information on the specific needs of the school as well as giving programs, and naming opportunities in regards to restricted funds.
Please contact Paul Gargaro, Director of Advancement at 734-205-4024 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Greenhills School accepts gifts of stocks, bonds and marketable securities. A contribution of stock or securities can often result in both a tax savings on capital gains as well as the charitable deduction of the full value of the gift. By law, the gift value is determined by the day of transfer – the date on which the security has been fully transferred into the Greenhills School brokerage account. The average stock price for the day is taken as the stock’s value.
