My Grayson

Ways to Give

For every type of unique donor to The Grayson School, there are many ways to financially support us. The Grayson School is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt, non-profit organization, and we rely on your generous donations to continue our work with gifted learners.

Grateful for Grayson

Our Annual Campaign supports all areas of The Grayson School. From academic programming, support for the arts, and athletic activities to faculty and staff development, service learning, leadership programs, tuition and program assistance, and so much more!

GROW Gala

Our community generously supports a school initiative each spring at our GROW Gala, where we honor an innovative leader in their respective field, and showcase the amazing works of our students. In 2023, we proudly honored Dr. Robert S. Langer, Director of The Langer Lab at MIT.

PA Tax Credit Programs

Pennsylvania EITC and OSTC programs provide need-based scholarships to students who might otherwise be unable to attend our school. Please consider making a Grayson experience possible for more gifted students through these powerful programs.

Get Involved!

There are a multitude of ways for you to get involved: volunteering on a committee, sourcing auction items, being a homeroom parent, taking a leadership role in our Grayson Parents Association (GPA), and supporting Teacher Appreciation efforts to name a few!

Why We Donate

Shula & Larry Lazarus

“Children are the future. In providing them with personalized social and emotional support in addition to an excellent, dynamic education, Grayson enables them to think creatively and independently. Grayson ensures the opportunity to excel and fly unrestricted into the future. Our granddaughter, Vivian, loves the school and has been flourishing there from day one. She exemplifies the potential growth and development provided by Grayson, whose vision we fully support.”

— Shula & Larry Lazarus, Grayson Grandparents

John & Jessica Brecker

“Grayson has transformed our eldest son Jack’s entire learning experience. It has been a joy to watch our child do a complete 180 and go from complaining about going to his old school, to asking if he can wake up even earlier in the morning to make sure he is not one second late for Grayson. We can tell from our interactions with the teachers and staff, and the detailed report card narratives, that Grayson may even understand our son better than we do! And it doesn’t end there – socially, Jack has flourished and found his peer tribe at Grayson as well. We are beyond grateful for Grayson.”

— John & Jessica Brecker, Parents

Appreciated Securities

Donating appreciated securities is a win-win for donors and charities, as this type of gift typically confers significant tax benefits (please be sure to consult a tax professional regarding your specific legal or tax situation):

  • Long-term appreciated securities with unrealized gains may be donated to a public charity, after which the donor can take a tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities—up to 30% of the donor’s adjusted gross income.
  • Since the securities are donated rather than sold, capital gains taxes from selling the securities no longer apply. The more appreciation the securities have, the greater the tax savings may be.

As of January 1, 2024, our stock broker is no longer TDAmerica; instead, we have moved all of our stock management to WSFS Bank. If you would like to make a donation of Appreciated Securities, please contact Kristen, who can help you with your donation.

IRA Distributions

Donors can make a distribution directly from an IRA to Grayson without being taxed. Such gifts must be direct transfers from your IRA.

Corporate Matching Gifts

Increase your gift to The Grayson School by having your employer match your donation. Check to see if The Grayson School qualifies for matching funds from your workplace.

Foundations, Trusts, and Donor-Advised Funds

If you are affiliated with a foundation, trust, or have a donor-advised fund, please consider directing its support to The Grayson School.
