Investment Options

Your investment in our school's future is tax deductible*, and there are a variety of ways to invest in Inspiring Performance. You are invited to participate in one or more of them.
Investments of Cash
Commitments may be paid over a period of five years or any appropriate timetable. Spreading out the payment terms of your investment, with the option of making annual, semi-annual or quarterly payments, provides ultimate flexibility, and might help you stretch to a higher level of support.
Investments of Stock or Securities
Gifts of stock -- one-time gifts over a period of years -- are an ideal vehicle for both donor and Totino-Grace. In gifting appreciated stock, the donor avoids all capital gains taxes, receives full benefit of a charitable contribution, and provides the school with a significant and immediate gift. Please contact Ben Lentz in the Advancement Office (763-571-6335 or for transfer instructions.
Investments of Real Estate
Gifts of real estate provide the same advantages as stock gifts. Like gifts of stock, the donor provides a meaningful impact on the school mission, benefits from significant tax savings, and does not suffer any decrease in regular cash flow.
Investment through a Deferred or Planned Giving Vehicle
Planned gifts must become a greater source of funding for the long-term health of our school. Giving through an estate provides the donor with a gift of a lifetime. Life insurance, annuities, trusts, or investing through one's will are excellent ways to make lifelong testimony to an institution that has profoundly impacted your life.
We invite your participation through planned or deferred giving, as a secondary way to support this important campaign. Let us know of your intention so we can provide the appropriate letter of intent for your signature.
