Leadership Gifts are gifts of $2,500 and greater made to The Academy Fund. Leadership donors are recognized and celebrated at the President’s Dinner each year.
Gifts of publicly-traded securities that have appreciated over time allow you to claim a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of the stock in the year the gift was made. Gifts of securities may be made by:
- Electronically transferring the securities from your brokerage account to one maintained in the name of Norfolk Academy (Brokerage Firm contacts), or
- Delivering the securities to the School along with a signed stock power form.
For more information and to notify us of your intent, contact Page Sykes at 757-452-6766 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a description of the stock to be transferred, the number of shares, the brokerage company, and the desired purpose of the gift (Security Transfer Sheet).
This electronic method transfers the stock from your account to an account in the name of Norfolk Academy. For your convenience, we have accounts with several brokerage firms. For all securities transfers you will need the school’s Tax ID # - 54-0551901.
If you do not have a preferred broker, you can transfer your stocks to Raymond James Financial.

PLEASE NOTE that you as a donor must not direct the broker to sell the stock for Norfolk Academy. Stock sold by a donor is treated as a cash gift and would expose you to capital gains tax liability. Once you have requested the transfer of stocks, a member of the Norfolk Academy Development Office will direct the broker to sell.
Feel free to contact Page Sykes, (757) 452-6766, or the Norfolk Academy Development Office, (757) 461-6236, with any additional questions.
If you have the certificate in your possession, you may mail the certificate or deliver it by hand.
Mail the unendorsed certificate and a Securities Transfer Form with your intent clearly stated via certified mail or an overnight service to:
1585 Wesleyan Drive
Norfolk, VA 23502-5591
In a separate envelope, mail a signed, blank stock power form, with your signature as it appears on the certificate and a copy of your securities transfer form.
You may either endorse the back of the stock certificate(s) in our presence or sign a stock power form.

Norfolk Academy’s Spirit Brick Walkway is located at the front of campus just outside the Tucker Arts Center archway. Be a part of this beautiful Norfolk Academy entrance and create a lasting legacy for your Bulldog!
A brick can be engraved to permanently honor someone in the Academy family or to commemorate a special event, such as a 6th or 12th grade graduation. Proceeds from Spirit Brick purchases are directed towards student scholarships and are 100% tax deductible. Bricks are installed prior to the start of each new school year and are placed in the walkway in the order in which they are received.
Each brick may have up to 3 engraved lines, 14 characters per line (including punctuation and spaces). All text will be centered on the brick. Please find a few examples below or you are welcome to create your own message within the guidelines.
