Creative Ways to Give

Here are some creative ways to make your gift count for St. Martin de Porres Students:

  • Use your RedCard at Target. Designate our school [#14638] at www.Target.com/tcoe, and every time you use your RedCard at Target or Target.com, Target will donate 1% of your purchase to SMDPS.
  • Ask your employer to match your gift. It will normally require nothing more than submitting a form to us along with your contribution. We’ll do the rest! You get credit for your donation as well as your company’s matching gift.
  • Give through The United Way. You can designate our school [#49530] when you make a contribution through the United Way Donor Choice Program.
  • Make a planned gift. Please consider a bequest, a charitable remainder trust, or charitable gift annuity and create a lasting legacy of generosity for you and your family.  This is an important source of long-range sustainability for our school.
  • Give a gift of securities. Your donation of stock can help you avoid capital gains tax.  Contact our office for more details.
