Giving Opportunities

Salem Academy Fund

The Salem Academy Fund sustains the institution’s greatest needs, including

  • Maintenance and preservation of Salem’s historic buildings and grounds
  • Technological upgrades for classrooms and dorms
  • New student programs and athletic teams
  • Other ongoing campus needs

Gifts to this critical Fund ensure the value of a Salem Academy degree by allowing us to provide students with exceptional faculty, up-to-date facilities, financial aid, and myriad opportunities that encourage their personal and professional growth.

Stocks

Gifts of stocks and other securities can generate a favorable tax benefit to the donor. Contact our office for more information on stock donations: 336.721.2607 or development@salem.edu.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts, which include gift annuities, bequests, and other types of estate gifts, offer numerous benefits to both the donor and the Academy. Read more about Planned Giving and its impact on future generations of Salem girls.

Matching Gift Programs

If you or your spouse work for a company with a matching gift program, you could double or even triple your gift! This is a great opportunity to maximize your personal contribution, as well as increase its impact.
