Gifts of Cash
Gifts can be made via CASH or CHECK. Please make checks payable to KCHS.
Gifts of Stock
Giving stocks and bonds that have increased in value (and which have been owned for more than one year) provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. Donors can deduct the full market value of securities and avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation.
Step 1: Please contact the Advancement Office with the number of shares and the name of the stock you plan to transfer.
Step 2: Contact your broker and request that the stock be electronically transferred to the KCHS account:
UBS Financial Services Inc. | 800 S. Gay Street, Plaza Tower Ste. A, Knoxville, TN 37929
Advisor: John MacDonald, Sr. (Class of ’71) | 865-522-5183
Account #: KA 31829 12 | DTC #: 0221
The value of your securities gift may be slightly different from the actual sale price. The gift value will be the average of the high and low selling prices of your stock or bond on the date of your gift. You may deduct the gift value of these securities for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income. Any excess can be carried over for an additional five years if necessary.
Thousands of companies have established programs that match employee charitable donations dollar-for-dollar. This is an easy way to double or even triple the size of your Annual Fund contribution. Please ask your employer if they will match your gift.
Gifts to Knoxville Catholic may be outright or pledged. Contributions are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Email Joni Punch in the Advancement office or call 865-560-0502.
Gifts via Credit Card
KCHS accepts VISA, MASTERCARD and AMERICAN EXPRESS. Online donations may be made through a secure PayPal server.
A planned gift (also known as a deferred or estate gift) is a wonderful way to support Knoxville Catholic, and may provide additional tax or financial benefits.
Bequest – One of the simplest ways to leave a lasting legacy and ensure the future of a quality Catholic education. Bequests to KCHS are deductible from your gross estate and offer estate tax savings. As a nonprofit corporation, we are not subject to estate taxes. Donors can remember Knoxville Catholic High School through three types of bequests:
Specific Bequest – KCHS as the direct beneficiary of a specific amount of money, percentage of your estate or piece of personal property.
Residuary Bequest – KCHS will receive all or a portion of the remainder (residue) of your estate once all specific bequests to family and friends have been satisfied.
Contingent Bequest – KCHS as a contingent beneficiary to receive assets in the case that your named individual beneficiaries do not survive you.
Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
Gifts in Kind
A donation of needed goods or services qualifies as a gift-in-kind. Examples are printing services, landscaping and equipment. Please contact the Advancement Office at 865-560-0502 to inquire about current needs.
The KCHS Annual Fund provides support for current needs and builds a reserve for future growth. Contributions support our excellent faculty, academic programs and co-curriculum. Through a consistently successful Annual Fund, KCHS can realize the goal of building an auditorium and auxiliary gym, as well as, increase faculty salaries to retain our excellent teachers.
