Outright gifts

Some alumni choose to give through outright gifts of cash, stocks and bonds, mutual funds, and wire transfers. Most gifts allow you to claim a federal income tax charitable deduction if you itemize your return.

Planned gifts

You can also give through life income gifts and bequests, including pooled income funds, gift annuities, and charitable remainder trusts. Both a life income gift and a bequest are a powerful way to express your faith in our future.

Matching gifts

Many companies offer programs that match donations made by their employees, directors, employees’ spouses, or retirees. Please use the Employer Matching Gift Search to find out if your company qualifies.

If you discover your company has a matching gift program, please request a matching gift form and forward it to the following address:
