Indirect Giving: Publix, Target, Amazon.com, Planned Giving

Indirect Giving Quick and Easy

An easy way to support TCS is through its partnerships with Publix, and Target. You can obtain information on Publix partnership cards by contacting the Advancement Office. Each time you shop, present your card at the check out counter and Publix will donate a percentage of your purchase to TCS. Cards may be distributed to grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, and neighbors, who can support The Cottage School when they shop.

Target enables customers to specify The Cottage School as the recipient of a percentage of sales charged to their Target credit card.

 

Shop Amazon.com

Every time you access Amazon.com through TCS’ site, a percentage of your purchase is donated to The Cottage School. It’s as simple as that. So bookmark this page, then access Amazon.com by clicking on the link above. Every time you use this page as a starting point for an Amazon purchase, a portion of your order will be donated to TCS.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts provide income to the The Cottage School while giving the donor tax benefits and/or income for life. Planned gifts can include real estate, tangible personal property such as antiques and art, life insurance, and charitable trusts.

Please contact The Cottage School Advancement Office for information on making a planned gift.

Life Insurance

The Cottage School can be a total or partial beneficiary of an existing whole life insurance policy, or a new policy taken out for this purpose. Life insurance can also be used to cover charitable gifts made from an estate. Annuities may also be gifted to the school.

Life Income Gifts and Charitable Trusts

Trust agreements are individually written to accommodate a donor’s desires. Please discuss any plans to include The Cottage School in a trust agreement with your attorney and financial advisors.

Remainder Interest in a Personal Residence or Farm:

You may retain a life interest in your home or farm while deeding the property to The Cottage School. Though you may continue to live in or use the property, you may claim a tax deduction at the time the property is transferred. Your attorney or financial advisor can assist you in making this type of donation.
