Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a gift to Media-Providence Friends School.

Cash and Credit Card
Credit card gifts can be made online by clicking the Give Now link. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. If you prefer, you can write a check, payable to Media-Providence Friends School Annual Fund and mail to: 

MPFS - Development Office
125 West Third Street
Media, PA 19063

Pledge Payments
Another gift option is to pledge to contribute at a later date or in a series of installments during an academic year. Consider pledging a S-T-R-E-T-C-H gift in a large lump sum to be paid over a series of 2 - 5 years. By spreading payments over a period of time—typically five years or less—pledges allow donors to make larger commitments and fulfill them at a comfortable pace.

Gifts of Securities/Stock Gifts
A gift of appreciated securities may alleviate capital gains taxes. We recommend that donors consult their financial advisor before making financial decisions.

A wire transfer is the easiest way to make a gift of stock. Call the Advancement Office at MPFS to notify us of your intent to transfer then provide your broker with the following information:

MPFS' TD Ameritrade account number: 757618939 
DTC number: 0188 

Your broker will give you the appropriate paperwork to complete. Please ask him/her to send notice of the gift specifics and date to:

Media-Providence Friends School
125 West Third Street
Media, PA 19063
Attn: Director of Development

If you have an original stock certificate, please call the Advancement Office at 610.565.1960 x106 for transfer instructions.

Matching Gifts
Many employers will match gifts made by current employees or retirees to non-profit organizations like Media-Providence Friends School. Your company’s human resource department will be able to provide more information about such gifts and can provide the form you need to easily double or triple the value of your contribution to MPFS. Inform the Development office to help facilitate these gifts.

Gifts In-Kind
Some donors take the opportunity to give to the school by providing tangible items related to our educational program. The Advancement Office can help you determine the acceptability of gifts.

Planned Gifts
You can remember Media-Providence Friends School by leaving a gift in your will or estate plan. Making a planned gift may allow you to give more than you ever thought possible and, at the same time, you may experience tax advantages or income for a number of years or life.
