Give Monthly.

Become an SAR Sustainer. Consider making a monthly gift to support the work of SAR year-round.


Giving through Donor-Advised Fund.

If you have a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF), or are considering setting one up, SAR welcomes gifts from your DAF to support our mission. Your DAF grant to SAR can qualify you for recognition in any of our giving circles, including the President’s Circle and the El Delirio Legacy Circle. Learn more.



Legacy Giving.

When you are thinking about leaving a meaningful legacy to a cause you care deeply about, please consider SAR. By making a long-term gift to SAR, you will be making a commitment beyond measure that will not affect your finances or lifestyle today.



IRA Rollover Provision.

Are you 70-1/2 years or older and thinking about the annual required minimum distribution from your IRA? If so, you can transfer up to $100,000 annually from your IRA to SAR tax free and reduce your taxable income.



Use a Credit Card.

You may make a secure gift online or by phone. Please call our development office at 505-954-7230.


Transfer a Gift of Stock.

You or your advisor may contact Lindsay Archuleta at archuleta@sarsf.org or 505-954-7231 for specific stock transfer instructions.



Give to SAR’s Endowment Fund.

Your donation will help build our endowment and sustain SAR’s future. Please contact Helen Brooks at hbrooks@sarsf.org or 505-954-7238 if you would like to know more about giving to SAR’s unrestricted endowment, creating a named endowment, or contributing to a pooled endowment for specific programs



Give to the Schwartz Memorial Fund.

Your gift will help honor Douglas W. Schwartz, SAR’s President Emeritus, and his memory by generating new knowledge about human cultures, past and present, and enlightening the public about topics of broad interest.



Charitable Gift Annuities.

SAR has an agreement with the Santa Fe Community Foundation (SFCF) to issue Charitable Gift Annuities on behalf of SAR. The School will benefit from income on an SFCF Donor Designated Endowment Fund into which the assets remaining after the death of the donor’s last beneficiary will be deposited.



Please contact Lindsay Archuleta if you intend to pursue any of the opportunities listed above at 505-954-7231 or archuleta@sarsf.org.

The promise of SAR and its support of exceptionally creative scholars and artists can be realized only through the combined efforts of understanding supporters like you.

SAR is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and most gifts are fully tax deductible.
