Ways to Give
Your support is integral to realizing a shared vision of providing needed funds to increase the diversity of our student body, enabling us to attract and retain the best teachers, and ensuring that Long Ridge can continue to provide the formative education that our community has valued for over 80 years.
Please make your checks payable to The Long Ridge School and send them to:
478 Erskine Road
Stamford, CT 06903
Make online donations via our secure online giving page using Visa, MasterCard, or American Express or by emailing our Advancement Team at Development@LongRidgeSchool.org.
Paypal & Venmo
Donations can now be made using PayPal and Venmo via our secure online giving page.
Installments can be a perfect solution for supporters who want to give but choose to spread their gifts in smaller amounts rather than a one-time gift. Donations can be made using monthly or quarterly installments. The donor decides the amount that is automatically deducted by credit card. Contributions can be made by submitting your pledge online or contacting our Advancement Team via email at Development@LongRidgeSchool.org.
Corporate Matching Gifts
Many companies will match your gift, greatly enhancing your personal contribution to the school by taking advantage of this easy option. Please ask your employer or contact our Advancement Team about your employer’s matching gift programs. A list of participating companies is available in the Development Office.
Please send matching gift forms and direct questions to: Development@LongRidgeSchool.org.
A gift of appreciated securities can entitle you to an income tax deduction.
You can avoid capital gains tax on appreciated stocks that have been owned for more than 12 months, entitling you to a tax deduction for the fair market value at the time of the gift.
Stocks that you have owned for 12 months or less entitle you to a tax deduction in the amount of the cost basis.
Please contact the Advancement Office by emailing Development@LongRidgeSchool.org to make an arrangement if you are making a gift of securities.
