Make a Pledge or Set Up Recurring Gifts

  • A pledge is a promise to pay a specified amount over a set period of time. A recurring donation is a series of gifts given repeatedly on an open-ended schedule without specific commitment. Even a small amount each month can add up to help our students. Please contact the Development Office for more information.
