Make a Pledge 

You can make a pledge to support the School to be paid at a future date or in a series of installments. You can specify if you would like to be reminded to fulfill your pledge in December, March, and June.

Matching Gifts

See if your company is match eligible.

You may have the opportunity to double or even triple the value of your gift. Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees as part of the benefits package. Please contact your Human Resources Office to learn more about your company’s matching gift policy and to determine if you are eligible for a matching gift or use the link above to search the list we have compiled.

Stock Gifts

Donors are discovering the ease and added benefits of giving gifts of appreciated securities. Often giving a gift of stock will create tax savings for the donor.
