Ways To Give

Federal tax laws are designed to encourage support of educational institutions. Rudolf Steiner School is a 501c (3) charitable organization and gifts to RSS are deductible for income tax purposes to the full extent of the law. The following is designed to help you understand different ways of giving. The best way to take full advantage of all available tax benefits is to talk with your financial advisors.

  • Giving appreciated securities is a popular alternative to a cash gift because it offers two-fold tax savings. It provides you with an income tax deduction (equal to fair market value at the date of transfer) and avoids capital gains tax.
  • Before you transfer a gift of security, kindly notify the Development Office so we can properly credit and acknowledge the donation.  Please contact Shannon Williams, Director of Annual Giving at
