- Planned Giving
Make your gift with a credit card through our secure online giving forms. If you would like to make your payment over time, you can arrange an annually, monthly or quarterly recurring gift.
We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express.
Some donors prefer to pledge a gift to be paid off in regular increments over a specific period of time.
Pledges may be set up by completing our online pledge form. With your pledge confirmed, you will be sent a reminder according to the schedule or time of year you choose to make payment.
Long-term, appreciated securities (i.e. stocks, bonds and mutual fund shares) used as a gift offer significant tax benefits to the donor. In addition to being exempt from capital gains taxes, securities that were owned for more than one year give the donor a charitable income tax deduction equal to the market value of the securities on the date of their receipt by the School for up to 30% of the donor's adjusted gross income.
Additional support to the Kinkaid is provided every year through the generosity of corporate matching gift programs that make it possible for employees to increase the value of their gifts. The company match will be credited to you, and you will receive donor recognition for the total amount. Many corporate matching gift programs will match not only gifts of current employees, but also retirees, directors and spouses.
To find out if you are eligible, type your company's name in our searchable database for up-to-date information on companies that match gifts. Call 713.243.5046 for more information.
We are available to talk with you about including The Kinkaid School in your long-term estate or financial plans. Planned gifts can include bequests, real estate, personal property, life income gifts or other types of appreciated property.
For more than a century, we have been devoted to promoting educational excellence, personal responsibility and balanced growth. By remembering Kinkaid in your overall estate or financial plans, you give future generations of students the opportunity to discover and develop their talents. You can plan a gift to benefit us today or after your lifetime, and often there are tax benefits for you.
