Alexander Public School Foundation

The Alexander Public School Foundation was established in 2013.  This fund provides donors with a way to make tax-deductible donations to benefit the Alexander School District.

The Foundation will enhance education for our students by financially assisting various projects and programs not in the regular school budget.  Certain types of gifts may qualify for a generous 40% ND income tax credit - please contact NDCF at 701-222-8349 for more information.

Among the many potential projects that our school foundation could help fund are:

  • Preparing for 6-man football in 2015-2016
  • Assistance with buildng updates and expansion
  • Updating the library and library resources
  • Improving technology available to our students
  • Expanding Alexander Comets athletics
  • Anything else that will enhance our children's education!

Ways to Help

There are several ways to support our school foundation now and in the future:

Outright Gifts:  This is a simple, convenient way to donate and receive a maximum tax advantage.  Money, securities, or appreciated property may be transferred to the Alexander Public School Foundation and the donor receives a tax deduction based on the value at the time of transfer.  The donor will not be subject to capital gains tax on any appreciation.

Deferred Gifts:  Deferred gifts may provide a lifetime income to the donor or designee.  Upon death, the residue of the gift becomes property of the NDCF for the Alexander Public School Foundation.

Bequests:  Donors may give to the foundation through their will and support our school for years to come.  The will can provide for a stated sum, for a stated percentage, or for the residue and remainder of the estate, real or personal.

Life Insurance:  By naming the foundation as the irrevocable beneficiary of a life insurance policy, donors are entitled to an immediate tax deduction int  he amount of the cash value of the policy.  Premiums paid thereafter are deductibel from income tax.

Memorials:  Gifts honoring individuals are an appropriate way of indicating one's care and concern.
