Can I make automatic monthly donations?


Yes! There are two ways to make automatic monthly donations.

First, you can set up recurring payments through your own bank’s online banking service. Most major banks and credit unions offer this service.  Here is a partial list of banks and their recurring payment instructions:

Bank of America

Citizens Bank

Sovereign/Santandar Bank

Wainwright/Eastern Bank

Second, you can make automatic monthly credit card donations here. Next to the “Donation Amount” field, check the box labeled “Make This Recurring (Monthly)”. Monthly donations will occur each month on the day of your first donation. Please contact us to cancel these recurring payments in the future.

When deciding which method to use, please take into consideration that credit card donations cost us around 2.9% per donation.


Is my gift tax-deductible?

 Answer Yes.  Boston Trinity Academy is a non-profit organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  Tax ID#04-3580876.  In addition to receiving a receipt for each tax-deductible donation you make, you will receive an end of the year giving statement.

Why should I donate stock instead of making a gift by cash or check?

 Answer Donating appreciated stock may be more tax advantageous for you as you avoid any capital gains tax you would normally pay upon the sale of a stock.  Please consult your professional advisor for information on your specific situation.

How do I determine the value of my transferred stock for tax deduction purposes?

 Answer For appreciated stock held more than a year, your tax deduction is determined by taking the average of the high and low price per share of the stock on the day it is transferred out of your account multiplied by the number of shares you donated. Your professional advisor should be able to provide you with all this information.  We will provide you with a receipt noting the date and the number of shares of each stock we received.  You should consult your financial advisor for advice on your specific situation.
