- Ways to give: Check, credit card, stock, gifts of $2,500+ can be pledged
The MMS Fund

Corporate matching gifts
Many employers offer matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If eligible, your gift to MMS could be doubled or even tripled!
Please instruct your broker to send securities to the MMS account as follows:
Metropolitan Montessori School
Vanguard Brokerage Services
School Tax ID#: 13-2527041
Please either complete and return this form to firstname.lastname@example.org OR send an email with the name of stock, number of shares, and fund designation on the date of transfer. This ensures that MMS can properly credit and acknowledge your gift.
Gifts of appreciated securities such as stocks, mutual fund shares, and bonds are fully tax-deductible charitable contributions. In fact, donating appreciated securities offers you a two-fold advantage. First, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the increase in value of your security. Second, you receive an income-tax deduction in the calendar year of your donation for the full fair market value of your stock.
Metropolitan Montessori School is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. All gifts of cash or stock to The MMS Fund are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
