Donate Appreciated Securities

Gifts of Appreciated Securities can provide donors with significant tax benefits. A contribution of appreciated securities entitles you to a charitable deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities and none of the appreciation is taxable. Appreciated securities can be wired directly to Riverdale Country School’s brokerage account. Due to processing fees, only securities totaling over $1,000 can be accepted.

Please contact Nicole Sundell, Development Associate, by phone at 718-519-2745 or email at for transfer instructions and to inform her of the type of securities being donated in order to guarantee that the gift is properly credited and acknowledged.

Make a Wire Transfer

Please notify our office in advance of your intent to wire funds. To request wire transfer instructions or for other questions, please contact Nicole Sundell, Development Associate, at 718-519-2745 or email at

Request a Matching Gift

Matching Gifts can greatly increase the value of your gift to Riverdale. If you, your spouse, or your partner work for a company with a Matching Gift Program, please complete and return the matching gift form with your contribution.
