Please make checks payable to Cheverus High School, 267 Ocean Avenue, Portland, ME 04103. Enclose a note to indicate gift designation or tribute information.
Make your gift securely online or call Elizabeth Woodcock, Director of Leadership & Annual Giving, at 207-774-6238 ext. 183. Please do not email or fax your credit card information. For your safety, all credit card information is managed by a secure third party administrator and is not kept on file at Cheverus. Consider selecting the recurring gift option on the gift form to spread out your contribution over time. Recurring gifts -- no matter the size -- provide a reliable and sustained resource for Cheverus.
Contributions may be spread out over the course of Cheverus’ fiscal year (July 1-June 30) by making a recurring gift. Select this option on the gift form and your credit card will be automatically charged each month. You may stop the gift or change the amount at any time! For your safety, all credit card information is managed by a secure third party administrator and is not kept on file at Cheverus.
Cheverus accepts Venmo, GooglePay, ApplePay and more! If you have one of these apps installed on your phone, it will show up as an option when you check out using the online gift form.
If you prefer to give directly through the Venmo app, search @Cheverus and look for the purple seal. Indicate your class year or affiliation in the description, as well as the gift designation (e.g. The Cheverus Fund). Please note that the Venmo app doesn't provide us with your contact information so you may need to contact us if you'd like a gift receipt. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gifts of stock or mutual fund shares offer an easy and tax efficient way to make an impactful gift to Cheverus. For transfer instructions or to notify us of an incoming gift of securities, contact Elizabeth Woodcock, Director of Leadership & Annual Giving, at (207) 774-6238 ext. 183.
For instructions on how to transfer a gift directly from your bank account to Cheverus’ bank account, contact Elizabeth Woodcock, Director of Leadership & Annual Giving, at (207) 774-6238 ext. 183.
Many corporations will match your gift, doubling the impact of your support of Cheverus. In most cases, companies that match employees' or retirees’ gifts provide paper or electronic forms through their human resources departments for you to forward to Cheverus along with your gift. Check with your HR department to see if your company has a matching gift program.
With thoughtful gift planning, you can provide long-lasting support for Cheverus while enjoying financial benefits for yourself. Explore various gift options such as bequests, IRA rollovers, charitable gift annuities, gifts of real estate, and more to determine the type of gift that best suits your goals.
