Many companies will match the donations that their employees make to non-profit organizations.
Please contact the Human Resources department of your company to find out how. (The SHS Foundation cannot initiate the process -- only the employee can do this.)
The SHS Foundation is registered on all of the major donation systems used by companies in the Bay Area. If your employer cannot find us, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
A donation of appreciated stock allows you to give at least 20% more than if you donate the equivalent cash. Why? Because you don't pay capital gains tax on the donated shares. Plus, you are still eligible to deduct the full fair-market value of the shares from your income taxes, up to the overall amount allowed by the IRS.
To donate stock please email email@example.com
We will send you the Foundation's brokerage account information so you can have your brokerage agent transfer the stock to us.
Car or Boat Donation
To donate a car, truck, boat, RV, or trailer, please visit vehiclesforcharity.com
If it's on wheels they'll take it, even if it is not running!
Type in your name, email, and the charity name "Saratoga High School Foundation". (Do NOT select "Saratoga Educational Foundation", which is the K-8 foundation. But we encourage you to donate there too if you have kids in elementary or middle school.)
Vehicles for Charity will pick up your vehicle within 48 hours, and handle all the DMV paperwork. There is no cost to you. After auctioning your vehicle, they will give us the proceeds minus their commission.
