Ways to Givegivebutton

Thank you for considering a donation to the Keys School Annual Fund!


  • Donate Online – via the green “Give” button above or on the KeysNet Resource Board.
  • Check – made payable to “Keys School” (“Annual Fund” noted on the memo line).
  • Donor Advised Fund (DAF) *IMPORTANT PROCEDURE* – Keys gratefully accepts donations from Donor Advised Funds (DAF). Due to IRS Regulations, however, Keys is not permitted to accept a DAF grant in payment for a pledge. Therefore, please FIRST contact your DAF to request the grant (specifying it is intended for Annual Fund); then SECOND email Ella Duncanson, Assistant Director of Development, at givetokeys@keysschool.org to let us know the amount and when to expect the grant. We will not be able to count your donation until you have made the grant request, per IRS regulations. Please contact Ella with any questions. Thank you for your patience and understanding with this procedure.
  • Securities (Stock)
Can be transferred directly to Keys by giving the following information to your broker: Vanguard Brokerage Services, DTC 0062, Account: Keys School, 42909144.
Once you’ve authorized the transfer, please email Ella Duncanson at givetokeys@keysschool.org. Please send Ella the name and number of shares of the stock you are donating and let her know when the transfer will be made – this is an important step so that Keys can ensure proper receipt and documentation of your gift.
  • Make a Pledge – email “I pledge $X (fill in the X with your pledge amount) to the Keys School 2016-17 Annual Fund” to givetokeys@keysschool.org to make your pledge. Please note: please do not make a pledge if you are requesting a grant from a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) – please see the above instructions for DAF donations.
  • Corporate Matching Gifts – a great way to make your donation go even further! Many corporations will match tax-deductible gifts made by their employees. Visit the Matching Gifts page to find out if your employer has a Corporate Matching Gift program or email the Keys Development Team at givetokeys@keysschool.org and we will help you.
