Complete your gift via credit card using the school’s secure online giving webpage www.loomischaffee.org/giving, or to give over the phone, call the Annual Fund at 860.687.6276. Loomis accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
Maximize the impact of your gift by having it matched by your employer. Once you make your gift, you must fill out an online or paper form and submit it into Loomis. The school will complete its portion and will follow up with your company to ensure that the matching gift is received. To learn if your employer matches employee contributions, please visit our Matching Gift Database Search.
To set up a recurring gift, paid in monthly or quarterly installments, please visit https://spark.loomis.org/recurringgift. Recurring gifts allow you to provide consistent support to Loomis Chaffee. By contributing manageable increments over the course of the year, you can maximize the impact of your gift to Loomis while avoiding a large, one-time sum. Once you’ve set up your gift, you will not receive any more solicitations for the remainder of the Annual Fund year.
If you are 70 ½ or older and own a traditional or Roth IRA, you can transfer up to $100,000 in a given tax year to a public charity of your choice, including Loomis Chaffee. Such a gift counts towards your required minimum distribution and, though you will not be eligible for a tax deduction, your gift will not count towards your taxable income. In order to be able to make such a gift to Loomis, please see this suggested template.
