Ways to give

You can make general donations to the Foundation, specific donations to your child’s campus and club/team, or help us grow our Founder’s Scholarship Fund, which awards $3,000 scholarships to 18 seniors (3 from each high school) every year. The High Tech High Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, tax ID #33-0866869.

High Tech High Foundation
Attn: Susan Wiczynski, Treasurer
2861 Womble Rd.

If you are sending a check, please indicate your student’s name and school (and team, if needed).
The High Tech High Foundation collects funds donated by families and businesses. Every dollar is carefully and properly accounted for as directed by the donor.
Many campuses have their own Parent Association (PA), which maintains its own bank account separate from that of the Foundation. PA’s are considered subsidiaries of the Foundation, and they all share the same tax ID number (33-0866869).

Employer Matching, Donor Advised Funds, and Stock Donations
If your employer matches your charitable giving, or you wish to make a gift through a DAF or using stock, please let us know . Many local and national employers will match your donation and double your impact – just check with your HR department. It is important to get in touch with us, as employer matching/DAF fund payments sometimes arrive without the donor’s designation, and we would like to properly acknowledge and credit your gift.
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is like a savings account for your charitable donations and helps you distribute your income from appreciated stock or assets. Receive an immediate tax deduction when you donate. You can set up this personal charitable giving account with your financial advisor or through a community foundation. Checks may be made payable to the High Tech High Foundation (tax ID #33-0866869), 2861 Womble Rd. San Diego CA 92106. If payment is to be given by ACH or wire, or for stock transfers, please contact email@example.com for account routing information.
When you donate appreciated stock, you may avoid capital gains tax while receiving an income tax deduction for the fair market value of the contributed stock (check with your tax advisor for more information). To initiate a transfer, please contact your broker.
