Gifts of any size are significant to Falmouth Academy because they support our mission, people and programs. The following describes a wide range of options that can help you make a contribution that will maximize benefits to you and the school. In addition to cash, many other assets may be used to fund a gift, including appreciated stock, personal property, and retirement plan funds. Please review our Gift Acceptance Policy for detailed information.

- Matching Gift Programs
Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that enhance a charitable contribution made by an employee. Not only does Falmouth Academy benefit from the increased donation, but the donor may qualify for a higher category of recognition when the gift is matched. Ask your human resources department for a matching gift form and send it in with your contribution.
- Gifts of Stock
By donating appreciated stocks directly to FA, you can avoid the capital gains tax that would be incurred if you sold the securities. Please contact the Development Office for stock transfer instructions and more information.
- Tribute Gifts
You may make a gift in honor of a loved one, a student or graduate, or a favorite teacher. You may also wish to remember a loved one with a memorial gift. Please let us know the name of the person you wish to honor or remember when you make your gift; we will be happy to notify the honoree or the family of the loved one of your kind contribution.
- Personal Property
Personal property items that have appreciated in value, such as works of art, coin collections or antiques, may be given to Falmouth Academy as charitable gifts. As a recipient of the gift, Falmouth Academy cannot provide appraisals. Please consult your financial advisor or tax professional for further advice.
