Villanova College is dedicated to providing a superior educational experience to every student who walks through our doors. As a not-for-profit organization, this is possible in large part to the generosity of our many community members - parents, alumni and friends of Villanova.
Every day, your tax-deductible gift makes a difference in the lives of VC students enriching every aspect of campus life, including academics, arts and athletics.
Your participation matters.
There are many ways that you can make a difference:
Villanova College accepts gifts of cash either by cheque or credit card (Visa, Mastercard, and American Express).
You can call the Development Office at 905-833-1909 to make your gift over the phone or you can give online.
Consider giving regularly through our monthly giving program. You determine how much you are comfortable giving each month and authorize Villanova to deduct it automatically from your banking account or your Visa or Mastercard. It is an easy process and you can cancel or change the amount at any time.
Many employers match contributions made to charitable organizations. Please inquire of your employer if there is a corporate matching gift program in place. Often a spouse's employer will also match personal contributions through a corporate matching gift program. In most cases, you will need to fill out a company form and enclose it with your gift. Many companies offer on-line matching forms, available on the company website.
This is the gifting of properties including such items as real estate, securities, artwork, jewelry or collectibles.
Consider a larger gift by naming Villanova College as the owner and beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy. The premiums you pay qualify as a tax credit. When you transfer ownership of an existing policy to Villanova, you would receive a tax receipt for the cash surrender value of the plan. This would be separate from your estate and have no effect on your assets.
This is a donation that is invested, with the earnings from the principle used to support Villanova's operations and development. You can designate a specific area that you would like to see your funds utilized or let Villanova decide the current need.
