Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Can I donate by check? Yes, please!You can donate by sending in a check to The Exploris School (memo: Annual Fund): 401 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, NC 27603

How much money should I give? As much as you are willing and able to give. If everyone gave $220/student, we would meet our goal. However, that’s unrealistic for every family. Please give generously but never above your comfort level.

Is my donation tax-deductible? Absolutely, and you will receive written recognition of your gift via email that can be used for tax purposes. We also welcome donations from extended families, including grandparents. Individuals over age 70 ½ who are required to take minimum distributions from retirement accounts can direct up to $100,000 directly to a charity. The donation is not deductible but also does not have to be recognized as income. Anyone donating should consult with their tax professional for full details. Our tax information is below.

Can I donate stocks instead of cash? You can! Please contact the Exploris School Foundation at for details.

Can my company match my donation? YES, PLEASE. Many companies have a corporate gift-matching policy. They require the donor (you) to request a match, but this typically only takes 5 minutes. For example, Home Deport ($3,000), Lenovo (up to $25,000!), and Microsoft (up to $15,000!) will match your donation 1:1, which essentially doubles your donation amount. Please use the tool below to initiate the matching process.
