Ways To Give
- 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.
