Because of you, we’re now able to do more for people, planet, and peace.

Increase your gift to the COMMON Foundation —and your tax deduction—with one simple strategy.

Make a bigger impact by donating long-term appreciated securities, including stock, bonds, and mutual funds, directly to the COMMON Foundation.

Compared with donating cash, or selling your appreciated securities and contributing the after-tax proceeds, you may be able to automatically increase your gift and your tax deduction. Speak with your tax adviser about the benefits of donating securities and then get in touch with us and we’ll do the rest.

Do you believe that everyone should have access to a global education, regardless of their financial circumstances?

We’re excited to announce the Dragons Fund—a non-profit fund of the COMMON Foundation established to provide need-based scholarships. For decades, Where There Be Dragons has discounted tuition for those with financial need, but we can do better.

Dragons Fund expands our educational reach across economic barriers. Please consider making a donation to support students in need and teachers serving minority or underserved communities so that we can continue to provide opportunities for students and teachers.

Double your impact!
Where There Be Dragons will MATCH the total donations up to $150,000.

Dragons Fund is a 501(c)(3) program of the COMMON Foundation. All contributions are tax-deductible.

If you’d like to learn more about how to establish a scholarship in your family’s name, please contact:
