To do this :

  1. kindly provide your bank with school’s name and address as well as the  the amount of your gift.
  2. For your account number, enter the phrase – “monthly contribution for a recurring gift,”
  3. or your full name (with maiden name and year of graduation  if you are an alumna.
  4. An unrestricted charitable gift will then be withdrawn by your bank and sent to
    Mother Seton Regional High School on the date you have selected. This is the premier method for making gifts, especially recurring gifts, because there are no fees.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Tax Deduction of Gifts to Mother Seton Regional High School 

Mother Seton Regional High School has been recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity, contributions to which are tax deductible. Cash contributions are deductible up to 50% of adjusted gross income and contributions of appreciated property are deductible up to 30% of adjusted gross income. Contributions in excess of these amounts may be carried forward and deducted in future years for up to five years.

Pledges Not Legally Binding 

Mother Seton Regional High School considers all pledges to be a good faith expression of intent, but subject to possible future changes of circumstances and not legally binding, either upon the donor or upon his or her heirs.

Gifts of Securities 

If you wish to make a gift of securities, please call, or ask your broker to call Laura at Mother Seton to request instructions. If you prefer, you may also send the unendorsed certificate and, in a separate envelope, a signed stock power, enclosing with both a letter stating the purpose of your gift.

Gifts of securities can offer a double tax benefit: a tax deduction based on the current fair market value of the gift (the mean between the high and low prices on the date of the gift) and the avoidance of capital gains taxes that would otherwise be assessed on the sale of the property.

Donation of Stock Directions:  Please contact Laura Flammia for further instructions, our change agent is Morgan Stanley Smith Barney  DTC 0015 .    All stock donations are sent through the Archdiocese of Newark and then transferred to the Mother Seton Regional High School Account.

Tax Deductions for Gifts Made at Year End 

At the end of the calendar year, Mother Seton Regional High School must follow  IRS regulations for the dating of contributions. These regulations provide that the date of a gift is the date on which it is mailed, not the date received nor on the check date. Thus, if the foundation receives a gift in January that was mailed in December, it is a December gift. If it receives in January a gift that is mailed in January, it is required to record as the date of the gift the date of the postmark on the envelope, even if the check is dated in December.

Wills Trust and Annuities 

Many Mother Seton Regional High School Donors have obtained substantial personal and tax benefits by making gifts through wills, trusts, annuities and other forms of deferred giving. These avenues of planned giving provide for the continued success of academic excellence and to keep this Catholic, all girls’ high school fiscally sound.   Maintaining the tradition of promoting future Roman Catholic and Christian female leaders is possible through your generosity.

To learn more about planned giving through bequests, annuities, life income arrangements or gifts involving real estate or closely held stock, please call, email or write to:
