Ways to Give


Outright Gifts
Your outright gift to Chaminade can be put to immediate use – either it can provide funding for current programs or create a reliable source of income by expanding the School’s endowment. Most outright gifts to Chaminade are made in the form of cash, check or credit card.


  • Checks should be made payable to Chaminade College Preparatory and mailed to the Office of Advancement, 10210 Oakdale Avenue, Chatsworth, California, 91311
  • Chaminade accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover through our secure online form. To make a credit card gift over the phone, please call (818) 360-0615.

Stocks or Securities
A gift of appreciated stock generally offers a two-fold tax savings – avoiding capital gains tax on the increase in value of stock and providing an income tax deduction for the full market value of the stock at the time of the gift. Please contact the Vice President for Advancement, Kristine Calara for further information.

Please consult your personal financial advisor for details, or contact Vice President for Advancement, Kristine Calara at (818) 360-0615.


Matching Gifts
Your employer may provide matching gift support, which may double or even triple your gift. This is a great way to maximize your gift. When you make your gift, send the appropriate forms from your employer’s human resources department, and your gift to Chaminade will be matched according to your company’s guidelines.


To find out if your company has a matching gift program, please contact Director of Development, Major Gifts, Allie Scheflo at (818) 360-0615.


Real Estate
Real Estate, such as home, vacation home, farm, or acreage may have so appreciated in value throughout the years that its sale would mean a sizeable capital gains tax. By making a gift of such property, you would avoid the capital gains tax and at the same time receive a charitable deduction for the full market value. It is also possible to make a gift of a home, vacation home, etc., so that you and/or your spouse can continue to use it for your lifetime while you receive a current income tax deduction. Your financial advisor can best direct you to the benefits of "Retained Life Use."
