Donating Securities to Paideia School

End of year activities keep everyone busy, but please remember Paideia and send in your year-end pledge payment or annual fund gift. Paideia and your tax advisor will be grateful. If you would like to make your pledge payment or a gift to Paideia with appreciated stock, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Notify Paideia of your intention to make a gift of stock.Call or email Melissa Walden at walden.melissa@paideiaschool.org or 404-270-2337.

    In order to properly credit your gift, we must be aware of the transfer details. Because DTC information often does not include the owner of the assets, stocks sent without advance notification cannot be matched to the donor(s).
  2. Supply your broker with our broker’s information. SunTrust is the only authorized brokerage account for gifts to Paideia School.

In accordance with IRS guidelines, the date of the gift will be the date that Paideia School assumes ownership of the shares.  For crediting purposes, the value is determined as the average of high and low listings for the stock on that date. 

Gifts of appreciated Mutual Fund shares are welcome, but significantly more complicated.  Please allow 10 business days to process.
