How to Give

A Ripple Effect
Making a gift to The Derryfield School is easy. Gifts may be paid via check, cash, or credit card with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover. Online and recurring monthly gifts may be made on our online giving page, and the School also accepts gifts in the form of stock, gifts-in-kind, matching gifts, or planned gifts.

If you wish to make a donation in honor or in memory of someone, please indicate that with your donation, and we will send an acknowledgement to that person or family.

Thank you for considering a gift to The Derryfield School.

List of 6 items.

  • Cash

    A cash gift entitles the donor to an income tax charitable deduction in the year in which the gift is received. Please make checks payable to The Derryfield School.

    Send to:
    The Derryfield School
    Advancement Office
    2108 River Road
    Manchester, NH 03104-1396
  • Credit Card

    A credit card gift is recognized at full cash value on the date that our business office processes the charge and it is accepted at the bank. The School accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Please call Shauna Sarsfield at 603.669.4524, ext. 6101 or make a secure online credit card gift on our online giving page.
  • Gifts-in-Kind

    Gifts-in-kind are non-monetary contributions given for use at the School. The Advancement Office assigns no dollar value to these gifts but does furnish a gift receipt. It is the responsibility of the donor and their tax advisor to assign a value to this gift for tax purposes.
  • Matching Gifts

    Double or even triple your contribution! Many employers match their employees' contributions to independent schools. You must initiate this process through your human resources department; fill out and send us your company's matching gift form, and we'll do the rest! Check out a list of some of the companies that have matched in the past.
  • Planned Gift

    Planned gifts are made through bequests, trusts, insurance and annuity programs designated to build the School's endowment and provide a tax deduction to the donor.
  • Stock

    In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities. In the case of securities, which have been held for more than one year, the capital gains tax is waived. Please be sure to notify the advancement office that a transfer is coming through so your gift can be appropriately acknowledged and receipted.
