M. Douglas Trust Donor Tree

In the central hall of our school’s main entrance, a donor recognition “tree” grows in recognition of our generous supporters who continue to make a significant impact on the growth and well-being of The Prentice School.  The M. Douglas Donor Tree was first unveiled in celebration of our 25th Anniversary and in memory of M. Douglas, a local businessman whose estate made a substantial donation to the school.

Based on our Prentice Pride Partner giving levels, all those that give $1,000 and above in support of Prentice will receive recognition by the addition of a leaf or apple each year on our donor tree. We thank you for partnering with us to provide the best education possible for our students. 

Ways to give
Most donors find that a personal check, payable to "The Prentice School," is the easiest way to make a gift.
Paying by credit card provides several potential benefits, including paying over a period of time and earning airline miles! (Discover, Visa and MasterCard)
For those who would like to pledge a dollar amount and then make scheduled payments by checks or credit card. You may pledge monthly, quarterly or annually (a maximum of five years) by check or credit card.
Many corporations agree to match the personal charitable donations of their employees with an equal or greater corporate contribution. Businesses also often match donations made by spouses or retirees from the company.
Giving gifts of stocks or securities can be an advantageous tax choice. When making a gift of appreciated securities, you may receive a charitable deduction for the value of the gift and save on the capital gains tax.
You may make tuition payments on behalf of another person, such as a grandchild or friend.
A number of planned gift vehicles exist for donors. Some of these include gifts of life insurance, bequests and real estate.
Donations of technology, equipment, furniture and other items in good condition for use at the school are welcome. Please discuss these options with your tax advisor. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
