Planned Gifts

Remembering Sophia Academy in your estate plan will allow you to continue “changing the lives of girls from low income homes” while possibly realizing tax and income benefits for yourself or your family members.

The simplest way to make a planned gift is to include Sophia Academy as a beneficiary of your will or trust. You can make a gift that costs nothing during your lifetime.

We encourage prospective donors to consult with their professional advisors before making planned giving decisions.

If you have already included Sophia Academy in your estate plan or have arranged to make any type of planned gift, please let us know so that we may thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations and businesses sponsor programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees, employees’ spouses, or retirees. This is a great way to double or even triple your gift to Sophia Academy.

Our human resources department can also answer questions regarding their matching gift policies and procedures.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it to us with your gift. We will do the rest.

If you are a state employee, the Rhode Island State Employee Charitable Appeal is changing to help make giving easier and more engaging for you our donors. The campaign will follow the United Way of Rhode Island platform which will allow you give to any 501(c)(3) organization.  A Fall Campaign is being planned and we hope that Sophia Academy will be your charity of choice. For more information please contact Vernell Clouden, Director of Development, at (401) 784-0021 or vclouden@sophia-academy.org
