Your contribution is important to The Albany Academies -- Albany Academy for Girls & The Albany Academy -- as every gift, be it large or small, makes a tremendous difference to our schools. There are a number of ways to give to the Academies. Your participation encourages others to give and sends a message to the community that the Academies are making a tangible difference in our children.
Gifts of Cash
Cash gifts provide income tax benefits if you itemize your deductions. Checks can be made payable to The Albany Academies and sent to The Albany Academies Annual Fund, 135 Academy Road, Albany, NY 12208.

You can also make a gift by contacting the Institutional Advancement Office at (518) 429-2414. The Albany Academies accept both Visa, American Express and Mastercard.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of stocks, bonds or other appreciated securities offer two tax advantages to many donors. First, by contributing appreciated securities held for more than one year, you avoid paying capital gains tax on the appreciation. Second, you qualify for a charitable deduction on your income tax, based on the value of the securities on the date you make the gift.
Matching Gifts
Corporate matching gifts are an easy way for donors to increase the impact on their personal contributions to The Albany Academies. Many corporations have matching gift programs that double or triple an individual’s gift. To find out if you are eligible for a matching gift from your employer, please contact your human resources office. Companies often match gifts of spouses and retirees. Just enclose your company’s matching gift form, and we will do the rest. You will receive full credit for both the original donation and the matching gift.
Memorial and Honor Gifts
Any gift can be made in memory of a friend or in honor of a teacher, a loved one, a birthday, graduation, anniversary, or other significant event. Please specify in whose honor or memory your gift is being made, and let us know to whom we should send notification of your gift.
