Thank you! We appreciate your considering making a financial contribution to Spring Hill.


Spring Hill School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and welcomes donations of any size.  The programs and initiatives of the school are funded through tuition, donations and other funding sources. We receive no state or religious-based funding. All gifts are appreciated and are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.


The most direct way to support Spring Hill is through financial donations.  Your contributions support Spring Hill, its unique programs, and teacher creativity.

A gift of securities allows donors to make a big impact on our school AND take full advantage of tax benefits. Because of our educational status, donors may pay no tax on appreciated assets (and neither does the school!) when stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other securities are donated.  This can be much more advantageous for the donor than selling stock in order to make a donation.  Please consult your tax advisor.  Typically, the institution holding your investment account will have a transfer form for you to complete.  The following is typically requested information.  If you require additional information please contact the office.

Spring Hill receives twice the benefit when companies match their employees’ contributions.   Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match the contributions of their employees (and sometimes even spouses or retirees) to qualifying charitable organizations.

Please inquire with your company’s HR department to find out if they have a matching gift program.  If your company does have a matching program, they will let you know about their process. If there are any steps Spring Hill needs to take, please inform the office.


Many companies also have employee foundations that award grants to local non-profit organizations which are nominated by their employees.  This is a very promising source of funds for our school as the pool of potential grant applicants is limited to only those organizations specifically championed by an employee of the company.

If your employer has such a foundation, there may be an open grant application process or annual deadlines for submitting grant requests.  Spring Hill works to creatively match funding needs at the school to available grant funds, whether private, corporate, or through a foundation.  We are ready and willing to submit grant requests and proposals, even on short notice.


Another great way for your employer to make a meaningful contribution to our school is in the form of corporate sponsorship of our annual events and fundraisers.

Your company might sponsor our annual Invention Convention which takes place in the fall, in partnership with the Tech Museum of San Jose. Or, perhaps your employer will reserve a table for eight at the annual Spring Hill Parent Club auction gala in the spring.
