Ways to Give

We welcome your participation in the Century Fund and encourage you to consider the campaign priority most meaningful to you. Your gift can take several forms and, in addition to benefiting St. Joseph’s College, may provide powerful tax or estate planning benefits to you.

How can I make a gift now?

You may make a commitment to The Century Fund — for Annual Giving, Planned Giving or Capital Projects — with a gift of cash, securities, real estate or other assets. Gifts of appreciated property can provide greater tax benefits than giving cash. For more information on different giving opportunities, contact Kimberly Branach at kbranach@sjcny.edu or 718.940.5572.

Life Income Gifts
There are a number of gift vehicles that provide donors with income, flexibility and tax benefits, as well as providing a benefit to the College. We can work with you and your adviser to create an appropriate gift plan. For more information on the variety of life income gifts you can make, visit our Planned Giving site.

Bequest Intentions
A provision for St. Joseph’s College in your estate plans assures that your legacy will endure beyond your lifetime. A bequest in your will is a simple way to support the work of the College. This has no lifetime cost and your estate will earn a charitable estate tax deduction for the total value of your gift. Please visit St. Joseph’s Planned Giving website for more information on bequests.

“I give because I want to. I give because I can. I give because there are those that need and deserve. I give because St. Joseph’s will distribute the scholarship fairly. I give because of my spiritual awareness. I give because I cannot think of a greater cause than St. Joseph’s.”
