Other ways to give…
Gifts of Securities
Most people think of cash when they consider charitable contributions but a gift of securities may be a wiser choice. Many donors find significant tax savings by making their gifts in the form of appreciated securities.
If you have owned appreciated securities for at least a year and a day, your contribution can offer many benefits.

Sponsor a Student
When you support a child, a life is changed forever
Through the generosity of our benefactors, we provide a full scholarship to all SMPA students and provide an exceptional, holistic education to children who could not otherwise afford it and open the window to opportunities that transform our students lives.
We invite you to make a scholarship gift. Your gift can radically alter the trajectory of a child’s life. Thanks to donors like you, 100% of our graduate alumni graduated high school, in a city where the dropout rate of their peers hovers around 30%. We celebrate a 97% retention rate and a 98% college acceptance rate.
Many companies have matching gift programs that could double or triple your gift to SMPA students.
In Kind Donations
Your In Kind Donations of goods and services help to sustain SMPA’s mission. Gifts such as laptops and books for our library help to even the educational playing field for our students and reduce operating costs. We also need donations of musical instruments, athletic equipment or even a tank full of oil. If you are interested in donating gifts of goods or services, please see our Wish List.
In-kind donations of new goods and services are always needed for the Silent Auction at our annual Spring Fling, which last year raised over $200,000 for student scholarships!
