Ways to Give to Vanguard/Vanguard Foundation


Your gift to the Vanguard Annual Fund does do much!

  • Vanguard College Preparatory School depends on you—our families and friends—for support.
  • Vanguard has over 36 Alumni who have children attending Vanguard!
  • We are grateful for the continued support of our parents, alumni, grandparents, past parents, faculty, staff, and friends.

gifts of cash

Cash gifts are the simplest and easiest gifts you can make to Vanguard. We accept personal checks, credit/debit cards (MasterCard, Visa and American Express), outright cash, cashier’s checks, and money orders. Please make all checks and money orders payable to Vanguard College Preparatory School or Vanguard Foundation.

matching gifts

If your employer offers a matching gift program, you may be able double or even triple your donation to Vanguard. Such programs typically match all or a percentage of employee contributions to eligible charitable organizations. Please contact your employer’s human resources department for eligibility requirements and to obtain a matching gift form. Next, complete the form and provide it to Vanguard with your contribution. The Advancement Office will coordinate the remaining steps with your employer.

Gifts in Honor, Memoriam or Celebration

A meaningful way to honor a special occasion or remember a loved one is to make a gift to Vanguard College Preparatory School in honor or memory of that person. Donors wishing to make a gift in memoriam may make a gift of any amount.

Gifts of Securities

Vanguard accepts donations of securities at any dollar value. It is very important that you or your financial advisor contact Chelsa Ressetar, Vanguard College Preparatory School, in advance of the gift to ensure proper documentation and receipting.

Planned Giving

We recognize all donors who make a planned gift to the School such as a bequest, charitable annuity, or charitable trust. The Advancement Office and Foundation can meet with you to explore ways to include Vanguard in your future estate planning.
