Gift Guidlines

Campaign Gift & Naming Policies

  • Campaign gifts and pledges received between September 1, 2022, and June 30, 2024, will be recognized and credited towards Building for a Lifetime: A Campaign for The Camphill School.
  • Pledged gifts will be encouraged and promoted as 1-3 year pledge commitments. On a case-by-case basis, longer pledge schedules will be considered.
  • Any gift can be made as a memorial or honorary gift.
  • Gifts of cash, credit card (AmEx, Mastercard, Visa, Discover), publicly traded securities, cryptocurrency, and realized bequests will be credited toward the campaign.
  • Anyone 70 years of age or older may receive credit for an outright bequest provision upon receipt of appropriate documentation. A gift in the form of a life income trust, if the gift is specifically designated for unrestricted purposes, is available for any donor 70 years of age or older. Under certain circumstances, campaign credit may also be extended to include gifts in the form of life insurance for which The Camphill School is named as owner and/or beneficiary.
  • A gift of real estate will be credited at the time that the transfer to The Camphill School is completed. Campaign credit will be based upon the fair market value of the real estate as determined by I.R.S. guidelines.
  • Donors who are 70 ½ years of age or older may contribute a gift up to $100,000 to the campaign from their IRA and avoid paying income taxes on the distribution.
  • Any named physical space requires an initial contribution of at least $50,000. The Development Office is responsible for ensuring that any naming efforts are consistent with the mission and interests of The Camphill School.
