  • Cash gifts made by check, credit card (MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover), and automatic cash transfer arranged through your personal bank or financial services provider.


  • Long-term, appreciated Stocks and Securities can be used to support

    the annual fund or in establishing planned giving arrangements and

    provide a double benefit to you--a current income tax deduction and

    avoidance of capital gains taxes.


  • Planned Gifts may include Providence as a beneficiary of a bequest,

    insurance policy, or retirement asset. Bequests may be a specific

    percentage of an estate or a specific dollar amount. Bequests are also

    deductible against federal estate taxes and state inheritance taxes in most cases.


  • Company Matching Gifts may double your gift. Some employers also

    honor spouse and retiree contributions. Please check with your or your personnel office.


  • Pledges are gift commitments typically lasting over a three to five-year

    time period. By carefully planning a multi-year pledge, most individuals can make a gift that is many times larger than any single-year commitment. The pledge installment payment schedule is structured based on the donor’s preferences.


  • Honorary & Memorial Gifts are a thoughtful way to recognize a classmate, teacher, friend or relative.
