Organization Name: Ignatian Corporation also known as St. Ignatius College Preparatory. Tax ID Number: 94-1451515.

Search to find out if your employer has a matching gift program.

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds are a great way to support SI and they provide good tax incentives for donors. At SI, donor-advised funds can be used for Annual Fund gifts, capital campaign gifts, or Fund a Need gifts. However, they can not be used to fulfill written pledges or for the cost of attending an event.

The IRS is fairly particular on how you use the funds. We can only accept donor-advised funds exclusively intended for charitable purposes. The IRS prohibits donor-advised fund account holders from receiving more than incidental benefits associated with the gift. For example, purchasing items of any kind at auction is not allowed. If you would like to use donor-advised funds to underwrite the Fathers' Club auction, you must decline the tangible benefits that accompany it, such as tickets to the event or separately pay the full cost of attendance. (Full cost of ticket not just the tax-deductible portion).

Stocks and Securities

If you are holding the certificates and they are registered in your name, please reference this link for instructions. 

Please make sure you are identified clearly as the owner and let us know how you wish the contribution to be applied (unrestricted gift, Scholarship Endowment, Annual Fund, etc). We will book the contribution on the day received based upon its average market value on the day it was received.
