Create or add to an endowment

Gifts to endowed scholarships or endowed faculty positions are invested and a portion of the interest is awarded each year — so they provide assistance in perpetuity.

You can honor a family or corporate name, memorialize a loved one, or commemorate a special event.

Donating gifts of stock

Making a gift with appreciated stock is an exceptionally prudent way to support Nazareth. By giving stock instead of cash, you will save on capital gains, receive an income tax deduction for a charitable gift, and enable Nazareth to provide the best educational opportunities for our students.

By payroll deduction (Naz Employees)

Use the Nazareth employee payroll deduction form to choose the amount and timeframe for automatic gifts from your paycheck.

(Employees also can give by check, stock, or securities, or online via credit card.)
