Wire Transfer

If you would like to directly wire your gift to Madeira, you can do so by contacting the Advancement Office who can provide you with wire transfer instructions. When making the transfer, please note the name of the donor and the gift designation. The Advancement Office staff can answer any other questions you may have.


Donating gifts of appreciated securities that have been held for more than one year enables a donor to:

  • avoid all capital gains tax on the appreciated portion of the stock
  • qualify for tax deduction equal to the stock’s full fair market value
  • make a larger gift than might be otherwise possible

To make a gift of stock to Madeira, please transfer securities directly to Madeira’s broker:

Matching Gifts

Many corporations offer matching gift programs for employees and their families. Most programs match dollar for dollar, but there are some companies that match 2:1 and even 3:1. This is a great opportunity to increase your gift in support of Madeira. 

To multiply your gift in this way, please contact your human resources office to inquire about the method to have your gift matched by your (or your partner's) employer.

Planned Giving

Include Madeira in your estate plans

Madeira's Greenway Society recognizes members of the community who have included the School in his or her estate plans. For most donors, this means identifying The Madeira School as the beneficiary of your estate. These gifts demonstrate that Madeira is a place meaningful enough to be a part of your legacy.

Making a planned gift is one way to show your support and gratitude for Madeira, while also accommodating your own financial, estate-planning and philanthropic goals and priorities.  By planning for your future in a thoughtful and systematic way, you may see tax benefits, reduce burden for your loved ones, and support the place and the people that have been meaningful in your life.  

We encourage you to join Madeira's Greenway Society and include the School as a philanthropic priority as you think about your legacy. Below are links to helpful resources to get you started. For more information, please contact the Advancement Office.
