Ways to Give
Cash gifts to St. Martin’s may be made outright. Please make checks payable to St. Martin’s Episcopal School, or give online.
Honorary and memorial gifts recognize special individuals, anniversaries or events, or individuals who have passed away. Commemorative giving can be designated for a particular purpose or to support the school’s greatest needs. For more information or assistance, please contact the Development Office at 504.736.9914.
Gifts-in-kind are non-cash donations of materials or long-lived assets that support and serve the school. Such gifts may include equipment, software, printed materials, or works of art. For more information or assistance, please contact the Development Office at 504.736.9960.
Note: Gift value is determined by the donor through appraisal or a record of purchase.
Rather than making a cash gift, you may wish to pledge your contribution over a number of months (Annual Fund) or years (Capital Campaign or other specific gift objectives). For more information or assistance, please contact the Development Office at 504.736.9914.
Gifts of appreciated securities are an excellent way to make a gift to our school. Capital gains taxes are reduced or eliminated when you give securities that have increased in value and have been held for more than one year and a day. Please consult with your tax/financial advisor.
For more information or assistance with facilitating the transfer, please contact the Development Office at 504.736.9914.
Planned gifts provide many opportunities to support St. Martin’s through estate plans. Learn more about bequests, charitable gift annuities, charitable unitrusts, charitable lead trusts, life insurance, personal property, real estate, retirement plans and others.

There are so many ways to become involved in the St. Martin’s community. This school thrives because of the many volunteers we have on campus, in our alumni network, and within the StM family. Parents can be involved through the Saints Community Organization (SCO) in fundraising and community building activities throughout the year, working together on events such as the Back to School BBQ Bash, Annual Golf Tournament, Spring Gala, Teacher Appreciation Day, and much more.
Alumni of all ages connect through the Alumni Association, volunteer as Class Agents, and help plan alumni-sponsored events.
