Ways to Give
Your gift helps us fulfill our mission: providing students with a rigorous and innovative education in a diverse community and inspiring them to lead lives of purpose and excellence. Thank you for changing the lives of students today and creating the leaders of tomorrow.

Mail a Check
Checks or money orders should be made payable to "Latin School of Chicago" and mailed to:
Latin School of Chicago

Stock, IRA, Wire Gifts
A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year can sometimes be the most economical way to give.
You will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift (for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income) and will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for transfer instructions.
For information on estate planning or other long-term investment arrangements visit our Planned Giving pages.
Gifts to Latin can come in the form of other assets as well. For example, you may wish to consider gifts of closely held stock, real estate, or tangible personal property if its use is related to Latin’s educational mission.
Have an idea? Get in touch – we would love to hear about it. Please contact the Development team via email or by calling (312) 582-6049.

Increase your Impact
If you or your spouse work for a company that matches gifts, you may be able to multiply your impact! You would be recognized for the total amount contributed, your gift plus the match. To find out if your company will match your gift to Latin, please contact your company's HR department and obtain the appropriate company forms. Attach these forms to your gift and we can take it from there. Direct all forms and questions to email@example.com or 312.582.6040.
