Ways to Give
During these challenging times, online gifts are the quickest, safest, and most efficient way to provide support to Purchase College students.
You can support the Purchase College Foundation through outright gifts, deferred gifts, or a combination of the two. The most common types of gifts are contributions by check, credit card, or stock. The college can also accept outright gifts of real estate, gifts-in-kind, and other assets.
Passed in late March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act contained a number of changes to tax policy related to charitable gifts of cash to public charities like the Purchase College Foundation and Charitable Entities or the Neuburger Museum of Art. Learn how the CARES Act impacts your gift.

Donate Real Estate
Planned gifts can be of cash or securities, but it’s more common to give them in the form of will bequests, charitable trusts, and gift annuities. The intended purpose can be to endow a scholarship or faculty chair, to support a specific academic program, cultural organization, or lecture series, or simply for “bricks and mortar” costs.
Some of the most transformational gifts in the history of philanthropy have come in the form of a bequest contained in a person’s will or revocable (living) trust. Other types of planned gifts—including gift annuities, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, retained life estates, and various revocable or irrevocable gift agreements—will create an enduring history and bright future for Purchase College.
The essential part of a planned gift transcends the method of giving. The intent behind the gift—the determination to make a significant difference in a student’s education or the College’s potential—creates an outstanding legacy for you, while helping to assure a dynamic future for the College.
