Making Your Gift to Presidio Hill School

There are many ways to make a gift to Presidio Hill School. This page will help you determine which option is right for you. All gifts to Presidio Hill not only directly benefit our students, faculty, and staff, but are also tax-deductible!

Contributions to any given fund, i.e. Annual Fund, must be made corresponding to the school's fiscal year, between July 1 and June 30. Though pledges may be made at any point during the fund year, only cash contributions ("cash in hand") will count when the fund closes on June 30.

Transferring securities or mutual funds to Presidio Hill School can result in substantial tax savings. 

The following transfers are covered by these instructions:
