Gifts of appreciated stock or securities to Lake Country School can be made quickly, easily and provide significant tax savings to you. In most cases, the full fair market value of the stock on the day it is donated to Lake Country School is allowable as a tax deduction. Because your gift is not considered a sale of those securities, you avoid paying capital gains tax. Click here for transfer instructions.

You can also donate to Lake Country School during your company’s United Way drive.

(Note: If you make a gift to Lake Country School through United Way and use your company’s matching gift program, your match will go to United Way, NOT to Lake Country School.)
