How to Give


Gifts of cash are the most common form of support. Checks should be made payable to Canterbury School and sent directly to:

Business Office
Canterbury School
3210 Smith Road
Fort Wayne, IN 46804

Credit Card

Gifts by Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Call 260-436-8786 to make a credit card gift by phone, or  click here to give online securely.


Instead of making an immediate gift, you may pledge a gift to the annual fund and make your gift at a later date. A pledge to The Canterbury Fund is a promise to give a gift of a specific amount by June 30. Click here to make a pledge online. You may also make a pledge via regular mail, e-mail or phone.


Frequently, the most economical way to give – when one calculates the added tax savings – is to make a gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations have matching gift programs for their employees and retirees who support nonprofit organizations, including Canterbury School. Check with your human resource department and ask for a matching gift form. Simply compete the employee’s section, enclose it with your gift, and we will do the rest.


Canterbury welcomes items of tangible personal property that can be used in one of the school’s programs. Donors can receive a charitable deduction for the item’s market value.

Planned Gifts

There are several types of gifts designed to support the school at some point in the future, such as naming the school as a beneficiary in one’s will. Click on Planned Giving for more information about the most popular types of planned gifts.
