Ways to Give
Gifts of Cash and Appreciated Securities
The simplest way to support Friends Academy is by making a gift of cash or appreciated securities. A cash gift entitles the donor to an income tax deduction in the year of the gift. All checks should be made out to Friends Academy and mailed to: 1088 Tucker Road, North Dartmouth, MA 02747. You may also make a gift to the Friends Academy Fund online by clicking here.
A gift of appreciated securities (held for more than one year) provides a tax deduction without the responsibility for capital gains. If you would like to make a gift of securities, please contact our securities firm, BayCoast Financial Services, at 508-742-4721. The account number for Friends Academy is 5DQ-379874 and the DTC# is 0443. Our account representative is Nate Rego. If you do make a gift of securities, please contact the Development Office immediately so that we will be able to identify your gift at BayCoast and finalize your transaction in a timely manner.
