  • How to Give


    How to Give - Kirstie

    The Saint Vincent College Phonathon operates during the fall and spring semesters in the Heisel Room of Alfred Hall. The Phonathon family is made up of just over a dozen passionate Bearcats whose mission is to share the exciting news of Saint Vincent College with alumni, parents, and friends of the College. Our student callers are a crucial element of the Saint Vincent College Annual Fund for Students First, helping the College raise over $100,000 annually for scholarships through the response of our gracious donors.



    The Saint Vincent College Annual Fund for Students First sends a handful of publications to the College community each year. Update your contact information here to make sure you receive our magazines, postcards, invitations, and more!

    Personal Meetings:  


    If you would like to discuss making a gift to the College using Stock, IRA or including Saint Vincent College in your estate plans, a personal meeting with one of our Development Officers is available to help you with your plans. If you have any questions about making a gift, or if you would like to discuss gifts of appreciated stock, real property, IRA distributions, planned giving, or other creative ways of supporting the College, please contact us. One of our knowledgeable staff members will be glad to assist you.

  • Current Gifts

    Gifts and pledge payments can be made by check or credit card, through the mail, by phone, or by selecting the “Make a Gift” link on our web site. Pledges may be made over a period of single or multiple years and can be paid annually, quarterly or monthly. 

    Checks should be payable to Saint Vincent College. Please note any special instructions or designations you might have. All gifts will be receipted by US post.

  • Matching Gifts

    With matching gifts you can sometimes double or even triple your gift! 

    Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company matches, you may be able to access the forms directly through the search. And remember, some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

  • Stocks and Securities

    Gifts of appreciated stocks and securities enable you to support Saint Vincent, avoid capital gains taxes and earn a charitable tax deduction for the fair market value on the date of the gift. To make a gift of stock, you should contact your broker and notify Saint Vincent about your gift.

  • Planned Gifts

    Planned gifts offer an opportunity to extend your benevolence beyond your lifetime by making a commitment to the future of SVC.

  • Deferred and Estate Gifts

    We also welcome estate and other types of deferred gifts, including those that produce income to you for life. For the latest information and tools that will help you as you contemplate your plans, please visit our Planned and Estate Gifts site.

  • Memorials and Tributes

    Memorials and tribute gifts are a wonderful way to honor others. Remembering a lost loved one on their birthday, honoring a classmate for a recent achievement, or recognizing a friend who has been helpful to you in a time of need — are all ways to honor those you love while enhancing the learning and teaching opportunities at Saint Vincent.
