Support the Mount

The College of Mount Saint Vincent has a longstanding tradition of providing exceptional educational opportunities to determined and talented students, regardless of their financial means. The College is able to maintain this noble commitment due to the remarkable generosity of its alumnae/i and friends.

Gifts to the College transform the lives of its students. Students who otherwise would be unable to pursue higher education benefit from philanthropically supported scholarships. Gifts from alumnae/i and friends also ensure the vitality of academic programs, support co-curricular and enrichment opportunities and preserve the quality of our facilities.

The value of a gift to the College is evident across the campus, and wherever our students and graduates work to improve their lives and strengthen our communities.

Ways of Giving

You may pledge a gift to the College to be fulfilled by the end of the fiscal year (June 30th) by contacting the Office of Alumnae/i Relations and Giving at 718.405.3336 or at alumnioffice@mountsaintvincent.edu. You may fulfill your pledge using a check (made out to the College of Mount Saint Vincent), cash, or using a credit card.

Many corporations provide matching funds for contributions to eligible nonprofits, which is a great way to double or even triple your Annual Fund gift. Check with your Human Resources office to see if your company sponsors a matching gift program.

With a gift of securities, you receive an immediate income tax deduction for the full fair market value of your securities; and may avoid capital gains tax on the stock’s value if it exceeds the purchase price.

To make a gift of securities, please contact the College’s broker:

Additionally, please email the Office of Institutional Advancement at institutionaladvancement@mountsaintvincent.edu to inform us of your contribution.

The IRA charitable rollover allows taxpayers age 70 ½ or older to make tax-free charitable gifts of up to $100,000 per year directly from their Individual Retirement Accounts to eligible charities, including colleges, universities and independent schools. To make a gift via the IRA Charitable Rollover, please contact your IRA plan administrator to obtain their specific transmittal form or use our sample charitable IRA distribution letter.

There are many ways that you can make a contribution to the College without affecting your current lifestyle or your family’s financial security. Some involve the immediate transfer of cash or property (i.e. retirement assets), and others may be part of an estate plan (i.e. bequests). Many gifts provide valuable tax benefits and/or secure income streams that last a lifetime (i.e. annuities). We would be delighted with the opportunity to work with you to find an option that is right for you.
