Catlin Gabel is incorporated as a nonprofit organization, governed by a board of trustees. As an independent school, Catlin Gabel receives no tax or religious support. It depends upon tuition and fees, donations, and a draw on the school's endowment fund in order to balance its operating budget. All gifts to Catlin Gabel are tax deductible as allowable by law. The school will send a receipt acknowledging your gift. It is advisable to keep this receipt for tax purposes.
You may prefer to have your gift spread over a number of months, and we are happy to accommodate that. To initiate this monthly option just let us know of your wishes by calling 503-297-1894 x310. Any method can be used for this, but most often our donors set up monthly charges to their credit card or automatic withdrawals from their bank account. For help with any of this please call us at the number above or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
