Ways to Support

The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and the Xaverian Brothers left a legacy of Catholic education for us in Southern Maryland. And St. Mary's Ryken is a vibrant community today because of their drive and determination - and also because of your generosity. St. Mary's Ryken is grateful to all those whose thoughtful planning has helped ensure a secure future for the school.

Our academic excellence has been sustained by the commitment and vision of generous donors whose gifts have improved campus facilities, strengthened faculty and academic resources, and provided access for students, regardless of their financial backgrounds.

Gifts of Real Estate, Stock and Other Securities

Gifting long-term appreciated securities from taxable accounts held more than one year, rather than selling the securities and then donating the cash proceeds, can provide considerable tax incentives to you as a donor and more funds for charitable giving.

Wire transfer your stock to St. Mary’s Ryken’s account with Merrill Lynch today! Simply download, print, and fill out a Securities Transfer Form (pdf) by clicking here. Note that for all wire transfer gifts, the donor name must be referenced on all deliveries.

Please advise SMR of your intention to donate stock by sending a copy of this form to:

Bequests, Charitable Remainder Trusts, Gifts of Life Insurance

With a planned gift, you can put your assets to work for any part of St. Mary's Ryken you choose— while you and the school both share in the benefits.

Please contact the Development Office to speak with us about any of these options and to learn how these gifts may provide you with income and tax benefits.
