Whether you are making an annual fund gift to The Crefeld School or contributing to our scholarship program, your gift is vital to Crefeld’s students and faculty. Once you have decided to give, there are a number of ways to make a gift. All gifts are tax­deductible to the full extent of the law. If you have any questions about your gift, or how to make a gift, please call the Development Office at 215­242­5545 or development@crefeld.org.

Contributions of cash, check, or money order are accepted. Checks should be made payable to “The Crefeld School" and mailed to The Crefeld School Development Office.

8836 Crefeld Street, Philadelphia, PA 19118.

Contributions by credit card can be made using American Express®, Visa®, or MasterCard®. Necessary information includes the card number, the expiration date, and the name as it appears on the card. This information may be mailed to the office, called in to 215­242­5545, or entered via our online giving site.

Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts can double or triple the value of your gift. Many companies match the philanthropic contributions of their employees to independent schools. Obtain a form for a Matching Gift Request from your company's personnel or human resources office, fill out the portion to be completed by the donor, and mail the form to the School along with your gift. Annual Giving Matching Gifts are counted towards a donor's membership in one of the Annual Giving Gift Clubs.

Appreciated Securities

A gift of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, and mutual funds) can offer the joy of helping others while being a tremendous financial planning tool for a donor, since income taxes are reduced by the charitable donation and there is no capital gains tax on the appreciation. Securities can easily be transferred electronically by your broker to a School account. Please call Joan Giannobile at 215­242­5545, ext. 42, to learn how to transfer securities to Crefeld.
