Ways to Donate
Memorial or Honorary Gifts
Any gift, no matter the size, can be made in memory of or in honor of a special individual or group of people. At the donor’s request, appropriate acknowledgement(s) can be sent to notify someone of this meaningful gift. If you are donating through PayPal, please make sure to include your wishes in the notes section.
Named Scholarships can be established with a minimum donation of $1,500. This is a one-time scholarship that can be named by the donor (e.g., The Smith Family Scholarship) and will be awarded to a student within one year of the receipt of the money. Named scholarship donors will receive thank you letters from their award recipients.
Dedicated Scholarships can be established with a minimum donation of $20,000. This will enable a scholarship that can be named by the donor (e.g., The Jane Doe Memorial Scholarship) to be awarded in perpetuity. Dedicated scholarship donors or their representatives will receive thank you letters from their award recipients. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Legacy Gifts/Planned Giving
