Ways to Give
Landon offers many opportunities for supporting the difference a Landon education makes in the lives of Landon Bears. In doing so, contributors ensure the present and future of this great school, often while honoring its past and the remarkable men and women who have led the way.
The Annual Fund is Landon's first philanthropic priority; we ask that every member of the Landon community make their first gift every year to support the Annual Fund. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide the Headmaster with the resources needed to meet budgeted expenses, acknowledging that tuition dollars alone cannot cover the true cost of a Landon education.
Checks, credit cards, and securities are all used to make contributions to Landon on an outright basis.

Landon encourages pledge commitments to Landon United. Donors may make their endowment and capital commitments over a period of five years. Pledges to the Annual Fund must be paid every year prior to June 30.
To make a pledge, please print out and send in this Pledge Confirmation form (PDF).
A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year is frequently the most economic and tax advantageous way to give. You will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income and will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain. You may obtain details on the transfer of securities by calling the Development Office at 301-320-1004.

Members of The Legacy Circle have made a planned gift to the School, in the form of an estate gift or trust, passing on to others some of the benefit they or members of their family have received through the school. We can help you consider the many gift planning options including life-income gifts that may be right for you or your family.

Appreciated marketable real estate is another asset with which you may make a significant gift to Landon. A gift of real estate will entitle you to a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the property. You will need to substantiate this value with an appraisal. You may take this deduction for up to thirty percent of your adjusted gross income and any excess over that amount you may carry over for up to five additional years.
