Setting up a pledge
Pledges must be made in writing and include a commitment to a specific amount and payment schedule. Pledges may be paid over a period of five years from the time of the commitment in annual, semiannual, or quarterly installments. Pledge reminders will be mailed on an agreed-upon schedule unless the donor requests otherwise. Pledge payments may be in the form of cash, credit, or debit card charges, or wire or securities transfers.
Donors should indicate if their pledge includes an anticipated corporate matching gift, or if it may be fulfilled by a private or community foundation. If you are interested in making a pledge, please download this pledge card [PDF 270KB] and mail it to:
