Ways to Give

Why Give?

Every gift to Sussex School makes an impact on our school and our students. Your generosity demonstrates your belief that a Sussex education matters to our students, our communities, and our world. Donations pass on the gift of a Sussex education to others so that the next generation may experience the joy and excitement of learning in our community.

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund provides the school with the essential dollars necessary for program enhancements not covered by tuition. The Annual Fund includes financial aid to students in need, educational supplies, professional development for teachers, support for the arts, the adventure program and facilities, and much more.

Ways to Give

There are many ways to support Sussex School and our students. Every donation is valued and every gift contributes to the vitality of our school.

Cash/Check Gifts
Gifts of cash or checks may be deducted from your taxable income to the extent allowable by law in the year gifts are made.

Monthly Sustainer
Monthly gifts can be automatically withdrawn from a credit card or bank account.

A pledge allows the donor to consider a larger investment that is payable over a period of months or years.

Matching Gifts
Many corporations offer matching gift programs to increase an individual’s contribution to his or her favorite charity. Please check with your employer to maximize your gift.

Stocks and Securities
Giving appreciated assets to Sussex School can offer significant tax savings to the donor. Stocks are credited at the mean fair market value on the day security is gifted and can be transferred directly to Sussex School.

Donated materials and services are valuable gifts. Deductions are equal to the full market value of materials or services provided.

"I went to Sussex for nine years and my experience still shapes the choices and decisions I make in my life today. Not only did I learn how to craft sentences and weave together memoirs and essays, but I also learned to appreciate the outdoors, embrace conflict, and rely on the support of others around me."
