Rather than making an outright cash gift, you may prefer to spread out the payments over a period of time. A pledge may allow you to contribute more significantly to the campaign than might otherwise be possible, while extending tax advantages over time. To make a pledge, please visit Give Online.

Gifts in Kind

Parish will accept gifts of equipment, materials and supplies that further the education of students, or gifts which benefit the administrative operations of the School. For information on making a gift in kind, contact Diana Sobey at or 972-852.8785.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations have a matching gift program where they will match your gift to our School. This match can double, triple or even quadruple the amount of your gift. Ask your HR or community relations office to find out if your company has a matching gift policy or look it up online.

Gifts of Securities

Parish gladly accepts gifts of securities. For instruction on handling gifts of securities, please click here. In advance of the gift to ensure proper documentation and receipting, it is very important that you or your financial advisor contact Amanda Meter, Associate Director of Development & Campaign Coordinator, at 972.852.8757 or

Retirement Assets

The re-enacted IRA Charitable Rollover provision permits individuals 70½ years or older to take advantage of a special tax-saving and gift opportunity. You can contribute directly to public charities from your individual retirement accounts (IRAs) without having to count the distributions as taxable income.

What are the benefits to you?

  • You can transfer IRA assets directly to Parish without paying income tax on the withdrawal.
  • The amount of the charitable transfer will count toward your annual minimum required distribution.
  • You may contribute up to $100,000.

Note: the funds must be transferred from a traditional IRA or a rollover IRA directly to Parish Episcopal School.

To learn more, please contact Diana Sobey at or 972-852.8785.

III. To have access to the organization's most recent financial statements.

IV. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.

V. To receive appropriate acknowledgement and recognition.

VI. To be assured that information about their donation is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
