Gifts of Securities

Do you own marketable securities (such as stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) that have appreciated in value that you are ready to sell? If so, and if you’ve owned the securities for at least a year, you can gift them to Gillispie and earn a tax-deductible donation equal to its full current market value. You will not pay any capital gains taxes on the appreciation over your original purchase or basis price. Consider this option and maximize your giving dollars!

Please consult your tax/accounting advisor for specific advice applicable to your situation, using the Gillispie Stock Donation form to complete the transfer.

Wire Transfers

For specific instructions on how to initiate a wire transfer of funds, please contact the Office of Advancement & Community Relations, at 858-459-3773 or [email protected] or view this form.

Matching Gifts

Double the impact of your gift by taking advantage of employer gift-matching. Ask your HR representative if this is an option at your company! Local companies Qualcomm, SDG&E/Sempra, Verizon, Boeing, Adobe and Pfizer have all made significant contributions matching community gifts!


Pledges, which can be made at any time, give donors the flexibility to pay in installments or in one lump sum before June 30. Families receive participation credit once the pledge is made. You can make your pledge on the Make a Donation page or by turning in a pledge form to the School.

In-Kind Gifts

Gifts of personal property are accepted if they can serve a worthwhile purpose for the school, can be sold for cash, or can offset a previously planned expense. A description of the item donated is provided to the donor by the Advancement Office. However, the donor must determine the value of the item for tax purposes.
To make your donation, please use the Gillispie In-Kind Donation form here.
