Ways To Give

The generosity of parents, alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni and friends enhances student and faculty lives each day. There are several ways to make a gift to the Linsly School, whether your gift is for the Annual Fund or for any of the other campaign initiatives. Gifts of all sizes and all forms are invaluable to Linsly. Many gifts have substantial tax benefits for the donor.

If you would like to make your pledge electronically, just visit the online giving form and follow the prompts.

Outright Gifts
The majority of gifts that the Linsly School receives each year are unrestricted and easily transferable gifts, such as cash or marketable securities.
 
Checks
This is our most common form of support. Checks should be made payable to The Linsly School and sent directly to:
   Development Office
   The Linsly School
   60 Knox Lane
   Wheeling, WV  26003
In an accompanying letter or note please indicate to which fund your contribution should be attributed. All gifts without a designation will be committed to the Annual Fund.
 
Credit Cards
The Linsly School gratefully accepts MasterCard, Visa and Discover at our secure Online Giving or by calling the Development Office.
 
Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities provide significant tax savings for the donor with regard to capital-gains taxes. Call the Development Office at (304) 233-3260 for information about the stock transfer process. We are able to accept securities as a contribution to any of the funds at the Linsly School.
 
Matching Gifts
Your employer may have a matching gifts program for contributions to the Linsly School. Matching gifts from your employer can double or triple the size of your gift. Contact your Human Resources department to see if your contribution to Linsly qualifies for a matching gift. If you have any questions, please contact the Development Office.
To initiate a corporate match, the donor must obtain a Matching Gift form from the company’s personnel office, complete it, and send it to Linsly with his or her own gift. Linsly’s Development Office will certify receipt of the gift and submit the form to the company.
 
Gifts in Kind
The Linsly School is occasionally the recipient of donated items or services. Such items/services are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure they meet a viable school need. If you have an item or can provide a service you believe would be advantageous to the Linsly School, please contact the Development Office.
 
Memorial Gifts
Memorial gifts are contributions made by surviving spouses, relatives, friends, associates, or classmates of deceased members of the Linsly community. In addition to honoring the memory of an individual, these gifts also perpetuate his or her known interest in Linsly. We will acknowledge the gift and notify the spouse or designee that a gift has been given.
 
Honorary Gifts
Alumni and parents may want to make gifts in honor of a particular faculty member, classmate, or person who has played a special role in their lives or in the lives of their children. The honoree will be notified by the school that a gift has been received in his or her name and will be given the name and the address of the donor.
 
Planned Gifts
Planned gifts and bequests are an important source of long-term support for Linsly and are used as a means to augment outright giving to the school. There are several options available to donors for making deferred gifts, which can benefit both the school and the donor. To make a planned gift contact the Development Office.
 
Capital and Endowment Giving
Certain gifts made to the Linsly School help preserve and enhance the school community, whether in support of identified facilities needs or other physical space priorities, or in support of our faculty and student body. These gifts for capital and endowment purposes ensure the long-term programmatic strength of the Linsly School.
