Ways to Give

Every gift, large or small, unrestricted or restricted, is important to Portsmouth Abbey School. There are many ways of supporting the School's people and programs.

Your generosity to Portsmouth Abbey School and participation in the Annual Fund is greatly appreciated and helps to enable current students to receive an exceptional and unique education.  

Check

The majority of gifts received by Portsmouth Abbey are outright cash contributions. Cash gifts can be made by check or credit card. Checks should be made out to Portsmouth Abbey School and sent to:

Portsmouth Abbey School
Office of Development and Alumni Affairs
285 Cory's Lane
Portsmouth, RI 02871

Please indicate the purpose of your gift in your cover letter or in the memo section of your check (e.g. Annual Fund).

Credit Card

Portsmouth Abbey accepts credit card donations made with MasterCard, Visa or American Express. Our secure online server is the quickest and easiest means of making a gift to Portsmouth Abbey. A confirmation will be emailed immediately once the credit card information has been submitted. Donors can make online gifts by visiting our Online Gift page.
 

Recurring Credit Card

Donors also have the option of making monthly gifts. Instead of making a onetime, larger gift, you have the opportunity to make regular and affordable gifts to Portsmouth Abbey over time. Visit the Online Gift page and tell us an amount and how often you would like to make a gift. It will then be automatically deducted from your credit card on the 15th of every month. With recurring gifts, your regular contributions add up over time, making a lasting impact on Portsmouth Abbey. If you have any questions about this method of payment, please contact our Development Office Coordinator and Database Manager, Kirsten Harvey, at 401-643-1269.  

Donor Advised Funds

To make a gift from your Donor Advised Fund, contact your Fund Administrator and have them send the gift to:

Portsmouth Abbey School
Office of Development and Alumni Affairs
285 Cory's Lane
Portsmouth, RI 02871

Please indicate the purpose of your gift in your cover letter (e.g. Annual Fund).

Wire Transfers & Stock

To make a wire transfer or a gift of securities, please contact Director of Development & Alumni Affairs Matt Walter at 401-643-1291, or Senior Development Officer Andrew Rose at 401.643.1280.

Matching Gifts

Many gifts to Portsmouth Abbey are doubled, or even tripled, because corporations and foundations match gifts made by their employees, retirees and directors. Typically, Portsmouth Abbey receives over $50,000 each year because our donors took the extra steps necessary to maximize their gifts by obtaining a matching gift form from a corporation or foundation with which they are affiliated.

If you or your spouse is affiliated with an organization that will match gifts to private secondary schools, please forward the matching gift form along with your gift to Portsmouth Abbey. If making your gift online, send the form separately by mail. Please check with your personnel office to obtain a matching gift form.

To make a matching gift, please contact Development Office Coordinator and Database Manager Kirsten Harvey at 401.643.1269.

Gifts in Kind and Other Assets

Other assets that can be used to fund these and other gifts include real estate (commercial or residential); art, books or collections; life insurance; and retirement plan assets. For more information, please contact Director of Development & Alumni Affairs Matt Walter at 401-643-1291.
