Your Gift Enriches the Lives of West Oakland Children


At Vincent Academy, we believe that regardless of economic circumstances, every child deserves a great education, and with adequate support, every child can succeed academically.

Thanks to you, at Vincent Academy

  • Students explore art and music classes, along with learning opportunities in the media tech lab throughout their academic day;
  • Teachers expand their knowledge and bring engaging teaching tools and innovative curriculum to the classroom;
  • Students receive on-site mental health services to help address the impacts of trauma, which can make paying attention and learning a challenge; and

Gifts of Stock


Individuals can receive significant tax benefits for gifts of appreciated property.

When appreciated securities held for more than a year are donated to Vincent Academy or another public charity, the donor generally enjoys an income tax deduction for the asset’s full fair market value and avoids tax on the capital gain. This is a most widely used tax benefit for charitable gifts.

If you would like to donate appreciated stock to Vincent Academy, please contact us at or call us at 510-548-5276.
