Ways to Give

Your generosity directly benefits Peirce students.

Thank you for considering making a gift to Peirce College.

Over 70% of our students receive some form of financial aid in order to pursue a college degree. Without the support of alumni and friends of the College, many of those students would not receive the funding they rely on to fuel their goals and aspirations. Simply put, we couldn’t do it without you.

Personal contributions to the College can be made in the form of an outright gift, but many other types of donations are accepted as well. If you have questions about giving back to Peirce, please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement.

Corporate Matching Gifts 
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your gift. The impact of your gift to Peirce may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies also match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

Peirce welcomes gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds. Please contact the Office of Institutional Advancement at 1.888.467.3472, ext. 9323 for assistance when considering or making gifts of appreciated securities.

Memorial Gifts 
Making a memorial gift to Peirce College is a wonderful way to honor and remember an individual who was admired, loved and respected. Your gift is a lasting tribute to the important part that he or she played in your life and/or in the College. It can establish a permanent link with the past and encourages others to participate in a vision for the future.

Memorial gifts can be established as outright gifts to the College, by including a bequest in your will, or through creating an endowment to fund a special program or project.

Planned Gifts
A planned gift may enable you to satisfy personal financial planning needs in addition to providing Peirce College with important, long-term support. Some plans may provide income for life (or a term of years), an immediate income tax charitable deduction, or avoidance of capital gains tax. If a gift is made through your will, you obtain significant estate tax benefits.
