Giving

Every Gift Matters

The strength of Farragut’s giving community is a direct reflection of whether our parents, alumni, faculty, and staff believe in our school’s mission and are willing to make additional donations and support it. Thank you for your support.

Farragut is Diversity.
Farragut is Community.
Farragut is Leadership.

WE ARE FARRAGUT.

Ways You Can Give

The Farragut Fund, capital campaigns, memorials and matching gifts are just a few of the ways you can support Farragut financially.

Each year we need 100% participation from our parents, board members, faculty, staff, and friends of Farragut to give to the Farragut Fund.

The Farragut Fund

The Farragut Fund provides the base of support for enriched academic, art, and athletic programs, enhanced facilities, a dynamic faculty, and many more opportunities that make up the Farragut experience. A dedicated community of alumni, parents, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff, and friends joins together from July 1 to June 30 of each year to ensure Farragut students have the resources they need.

Farragut Family Association

The mission of the Farragut Family Association (FFA) is to promote family-to-family engagement and school spirit at Admiral Farragut Academy by involvement in athletics, campus events, and fundraising initiatives. Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities are available and encouraged. For more information, click here.

In-Kind Gifts

Often a donors can make in-kind gifts to Farragut of goods, services or equipment. Contact the Alumni and Development Office to confirm the nature of your gift and its intended use. Farragut will provide confirmation of receipt of such gifts. It is the responsibility of the donor to indicate the value of such contributions.

Corporate or Foundation Matching

Matching Gifts, also known as a matching fund or matching donation is a charitable gift made toward a non-profit organization by a matching donor (e.g., an employer) under the provision that an original donor (e.g., an employee) first makes a gift toward that organization.

Guidelines for such gifts vary from company to company. Specific questions regarding matching gifts should be directed to the donor’s employer Human Resource office.

Gifts of Securities and Appreciated Assets

Gifts of Securities provide a significant savings for the donor by avoiding capital gains taxes, while offering a good degree of tax deductibility. If you are interested in making a gift of appreciated stocks or bonds or gifting real property (real estate, a boat, a car or other tangible assets) please contact the Development Office for further directions for this type of transaction.

The Heritage Society (Estate Gifts)

The Heritage Society is a society of donors who have bequeathed estate gifts to Admiral Farragut Academy. Heritage Society membership indicates that Admiral Farragut Academy and/or the Foundation is included in the estate giving plans of a donor. Some members will give through a simple will bequest, transfer the ownership of life insurance, or elect to use one of the many options available through various trust arrangements.

The method of giving is not as important as the decision to give. Our ability to continue to affect and impact each future generation is dependent upon the direct involvement of those who understand and value the Farragut Experience.
