Make a planned gift

A planned gift is a gift you make as part of your financial planning or estate planning. A planned gift can be a gift of cash, real estate, securities, life insurance or other assets. For information contact Claire Gadrow, Assistant Vice President for College Advancement, or visit our planned giving website.

Make a matching gift

Many employers match charitable gifts made by their employees. Sometimes gifts made by spouses and retirees qualify as well. To get started, ask your company's human resources office for a matching gift form and follow the instructions on it. More information on matching gifts.
