Donate to CAF Today!

Thank you so much for your support of Carlmont High School.  CAF relies on parents, community and businesses to bridge the gap between what is provided by the state and local funding and what they need to be ready in the classroom and ready for life.  You may choose to donate online by secure eCheck (our preferred method as is saves us 2.6% in credit card fees) or by credit card.   A donation by electronic funds transfer (EFT) provides a savings of approx. $30 for a $1,200 donation and $78 for a $3,000 donation!

To donate online, please click the “Make My Donation” button below.

Stock Donations

Appreciated securities are perhaps the most cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of long-term holdings to CAF you receive a charitable deduction for their full market value — and you incur no capital gains tax (subject to IRS deduction limits).  Because electronic transfers are made without identifying the donor, please alert us in advance about the stock and number of shares you plan to give. You can do so by emailing Robin Bennett.  According to IRS regulations, the date of your gift corresponds to the date it arrives in our possession (for transfers from brokerage account to brokerage account).
