Deferred Gifts

We encourage you to consult the Gift Planning Office when making a bequest provision in your will, retirement plan, or other estate plan. This office can provide the appropriate legal name and language to ensure that your bequest can be used the way you intend.

Matching Gift Program

Many companies encourage employees, their families, and retirees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. Matching gifts can double, or even triple, the impact of your igift. Your Human Resources office will be able to tell you if your employer has a matching gift program and provide details on how to secure the matched funds. You may also use the College's Matching Gift Search page to see if your company has a matching giving program.
