Cash and in-kind donations of materials to the Foundation are understood to be deductible from federal taxes but the Foundation caveats all potential donors to check first with their own legal and tax advisers. The Foundation, of course, is pleased to provide documentation for any donations received.

Shelby County Schools’ policy prohibits schools, including physical attachments to them, to be named for living individuals. Names can be given, however, to unique institutions associated with the schools – for example, the Teacher Resource Center which will cost approximately $2 million to endow.
