Ways to Give

Your support of NA is deeply appreciated and vital to our ability to deliver a superior independent school education. We offer our donors a number of different methods to make a gift to the Academy. They include:


Gifts of cash/check are the most common form of support. Checks should be made payable to Newark Academy and sent directly to:
Office of Institutional Advancement
Newark Academy
91 South Orange Avenue
Livingston, NJ 07039-4989

Credit Cards

NA accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards. Donors may provide credit card information via Newark Academy’s website, via business reply envelopes they receive in the mail from NA or by telephoning the Office of Institutional Advancement at 973-992-7000, ext. 321.

Recurring Gifts

Transfers of Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities provide an opportunity to benefit Newark Academy with advantageous tax benefits for the donor. Donors considering a gift of stock, should contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 973 -992-7000, ext. 321. The school’s broker information is as follows: Fidelity Securities / DTC# 0226 / Account # Z71544876 / FBO: Newark Academy.

Matching Gifts

Many corporations match their employee's philanthropic contributions. Matching gifts allow you to double or even triple your gift to the Academy. Donors wishing to take advantage of their company’s matching gift program should request a matching gift form from their Department of Human Resources and then include that matching gift form when sending the gift to Newark Academy. For those donors making a gift to Newark Academy online, they should send the matching gift form to the Office of Institutional Advancement at the address above.


Donors making gifts to Rise & Flourish: The Campaign for Newark Academy have the option of paying their total gift commitment over a five-year period. When choosing this option, donors are required to sign a written gift commitment agreement and will then receive annual pledge reminders for payment.

Planned or Deferred Gifts

Donors interested in supporting Rise & Flourish: The Campaign for Newark Academy may choose to do so through a planned or deferred gift. All planned gifts at Newark Academy are used to strengthen endowed funds, including scholarships, faculty support funds, and general endowment, ensuring NA’s security for years to come. All donors who provide written documentation on their intention to make a deferred are given membership in Newark Academy’s 1774 Society.

Learn more here about supporting Newark Academy through a deferred gift, or contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 973-992-7000, ext. 303. Our staff is eager to assist you.
