Cash Transfer

Cash Transfer Information
Stock Transfer

A gift of appreciated securities offers two tax advantages: you pay no capital gains tax on the value of the stock from the time of its purchase; and you receive an income tax deduction equal to the full-market value of the stock at the time of the donation. We accept gifts of securities via wire transfer.

Security Transfer Sheet
Corporate Matching

Many companies will match a gift made to a non-profit such as Vail Mountain School. If you work for a participating company, your donation could be doubled or even tripled. To determine whether your employer or company will match your gift, contact your employer or Colleen Davis for more information.

Planned/Deferred Gifts

Planned giving offers substantial benefits to both the donor and the school. Planned gifts may take a variety of forms: life income gifts, charitable trusts, life insurance, wills, and real estate. These gifts provide significant tax benefits to the donor while strengthening VMS for years to come. For additional information on planned giving opportunities, consult your wealth advisor.
