Make a Pledge

Gifts of cash immediately benefit the College. We gratefully accept checks and cash, as well as contributions made through a donor’s credit card.

Matching Gifts

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.

Gift of Securities

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:

IRA Charitable Rollover

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.

Planned Giving

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.
