Ways to Give

There are many ways to make a gift to BSM. Philanthropic support from BSM alumni, parents, grandparents and friends plays a key role in the lives of our teachers and students. We hope you are able to give in a way that is mutually beneficial to you and our school.

The BSM Advancement Office would be happy to answer your questions, please contact Lisa Shaughnessy, Chief Advancement Officer at 952-915-4351 or lshaughnessy@bsmschool.org.

Monthly Gifts

Setting up a recurring gift is an easy and cost effective way to make your gift to BSM. Monthly or quarterly donations can be processed via credit card, a checking or savings account, or a student’s tuition account. Contact us directly to set up your gift. Please contact Lisa Shaughnessy, Chief Advancement Officer at 952-915-4351 or lshaughnessy@bsmschool.org.

Matching Gifts

Multiply the value of your BSM Gift! Many employers (and former employers, for retirees) match charitable gifts of their employees. If you are a donor to BSM, ask your human resources department if your employer matches charitable gifts. If this is a possibility, please obtain a form from your organization, complete and submit the matching gift form by mailing it in to us or completing it online! To see if your company matches gifts, refer to our Matching Gift Companies list.

Planned Giving

By including BSM in your will, living trust, or as beneficiary of a retirement plan or life insurance policy, you receive benefits in addition to tax savings and retention of your assets. The Spiritus Society recognizes donors who include BSM in their estate plans. If you would like more information or have questions about estate planning, please contact Lisa Shaughnessy, Chief Advancement Officer at 952-915-4351 or lshaughnessy@bsmschool.org.

Gifts of Stock or Other Securities

A gift of appreciated securities might provide you with greater tax advantages than a gift of cash. You can make a stock gift by contacting the Marks Group Wealth Management with LPL Financial. Valerie Griffin will be happy to help you with your gift. They can be reached at:
