Other Ways to Give

In addition to the Forest Ridge Fund, we offer other giving options, which include:

Planned Giving

Create a legacy for the future.
Planned gifts allow your legacy to support future generations of Forest Ridge students. There are many types of planned charitable gifts. Please click here for an overview of the most common types of planned gifts.

Forest Ridge is honored to be considered in your planned giving, and it is important to us to know that you have consulted an attorney or financial advisor. If you do not have such an advisor, we may be able to recommend one.

Please note that Forest Ridge is not engaged in giving legal or financial advice.

Memorials and Honorariums

Honor a loved one by making a gift in their name. You may choose to gift to a named scholarship or endowment that focuses on a specific interest, or simply give a gift to our general Forest Ridge Fund in honor of their memory.


Scholarships help maximize the educational opportunity for all qualified girls by offering tuition assistance for those who need it. This promotes a more diverse and competitive educational environment from which all Forest Ridge students benefit.

Stock Transfers

Donations of appreciated securities, usually common stock, provide a tax-efficient way of making your gift. Gifts of appreciated securities, held for more than one-year, may entitle you to a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of the gift. Additionally, you may avoid the capital gains tax that would otherwise be due on the appreciation if the security were sold.

Please note that Forest Ridge is not engaged in giving legal or financial advice. Please consult your attorney or financial advisor.
