Ways to Give

    Set up a monthly recurring payment schedule in the amount of your choice. This monthly payment can continue indefinitely or you can choose to set a specific end date.

  3. Installment Gifts

IRA Charitable Rollover

Laurentians who are 70 ½ years of age and older can make an immediate, tax-free gift (up to $100,000 per individual) and help meet their RMD (Required Minimum Distribution) for the current tax year by making an IRA Charitable Rollover. These gifts can be directed to the St. Lawrence Fund, an endowed fund, or other University priorities.


Donating appreciated securities allows you to potentially save taxes twice. You avoid paying capital gains tax and may be able to take a charitable income tax deduction. Learn more or call us for more information.

Wire Instructions

To make a wire transfer, please email Phil Mitchell at pmitchell@stlawu.edu or Bob Doser at rdoser@stlawu.edu for more information.

Planned Gifts

An estate gift is way to make a meaningful commitment at no cost which leaves a lasting legacy for future Laurentians. It can be as simple as making a bequest through your will or trust, naming St. Lawrence as a beneficiary of your retirement account or life insurance, or making a tax deductible contribution which provides life income.

For more information on any of the above giving options, call 1-888-758-4438.
