annual fund

The Annual Fund, which begins in the fall of every school year, is INTL’s primary fundraiser and directly supports the school’s budgetary needs. This is a true philanthropic effort; no physical reward is exchanged for the gifts, but your contribution goes directly toward benefiting students and preserving our unique community. If you can only make one contribution during the year, the Annual Fund is the best way to contribute.

    FreeWill’s DAF tool empowers you to make a targeted impact by recommending how you’d like your grant to be allocated, communicating your wishes to [ORG], sharing the details of your DAF grant, and navigating to your DAF provider. It’s also a great way to ensure our organization has consistent financial support while saving cash for immediate needs.

  • from your IRA

    If you are 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you can use this secure online tool to make a donation from your IRA account. IRA gifts are generally not recognized as taxable income and if you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) this year, giving from your IRA is a compassionate way to fulfill it.
    Using this online tool, you can learn more and fill out the forms from your IRA custodian in just a few minutes, or print out the forms to fill them out offline.
  • stock

    Donating stocks allows you to avoid the capital gains tax and if you itemize deductions, you can also take a charitable deduction for the entire donation amount. 
    Stock donations are handled as a broker to broker transactions.
