Methods of Giving

There are a number of ways to make a contribution to Lamplighter. If you would like to speak with someone about making a gift, please contact Clayton Hollingsworth, Director of Advancement and Communications, at 214-369-9201, ext. 354.

Gifts of Cash or Credit

The most frequent method used to make a gift to the school is a personal check or credit card. Gifts of cash are tax deductible in the year the gift is given. Checks should be made payable to The Lamplighter School and should be mailed or delivered to the Advancement Office. We accept VISA, MasterCard, and American Express and can make arrangements to charge a gift on a monthly or scheduled time frame. You can also charge your gift online by clicking on the Make a Gift button.


Pledging now and setting-up a series of payments may work better for you and your family. It might also help you to increase your total gift to Lamplighter. Please click the Make a Gift button to make a pledge.

Matching Gift

You might be eligible for a matching gift from your employer. At some companies, current and retired employees can designate funds to Lamplighter the allow you to double or triple your gift. Please look at the matching gift flyer to see if your employer has a matching gift program.

Gifts of Securities

Publicly traded securities, shares of stock in a closely-held company, bonds, and government issuances may be given to the school. If the securities have appreciated greatly, you may find that you can make a larger gift at a lower cost than if the gift were made in cash. To transfer stock to Lamplighter, please contact Clayton Hollingsworth, Director of Advancement and Communications. Stock gift instructions.
