Types of Gifts

There are several ways that you can support the Power of Infinity Campaign. Whether you give a gift now or later, every donation is important.

Outright Gifts

These are gifts made by check, credit card or stock. For easy wire transfer instructions, please contact Advancement Services Manager Lauri Justice at ljustice@colby-sawyer.edu.

Some gifts of property, including artwork, equipment and real estate, may also be donated. Please contact Advancement Officer Allison Faccone at afaccone@colby-sawyer.edu to learn more.

Planned Gifts

These are gifts such as bequests, trusts and annuities. For donors 65 and older, confirmed future gift intentions will be included in the campaign at their present value.
To learn more, visit http://colby-sawyer.giftplans.org or contact Peg Andrews ’85 at pandrews@colby-sawyer.edu or at 603.526.3726.

Matching Gifts

Before you give, check with your company to see if it offers matching gifts so that your gift will make even more of a difference. Call our Office of Annual Giving at 603.526.3797 to initiate a matching gift.

Giving Opportunities

Gifts from our donors are vital to every aspect of the college, and you can choose which priority you’d like to support. Here are some possibilities:

Capital Gifts

New building construction, renovations and technology enhancements are made possible with capital gifts. For those interested in supporting the arts, you can help fund the construction of our new theater. Or, if you have an interest in the health professions, your gift can help build the new nursing and health professions facility. Both projects offer the opportunity for named recognition.

Endowment Gifts

Endowment gifts allow your donation to live on, year after year. We will invest these gifts, and you can choose where the earnings should be designated. You can create a scholarship with a gift of $25,000 or more to provide learning opportunities for students today and tomorrow. A donation of $1 million or more can endow a faculty chair to honor a professor for excellence in teaching and contributions to leadership on campus.

Unrestricted current use gifts

An unrestricted gift, often given through the Colby-Sawyer Fund or as a planned gift, allows us to provide resources where they are most needed. The impact is felt immediately, and it’s a wonderful way to directly support the best educational opportunities Colby-Sawyer can offer.

Restricted current use gifts

Some of our donors prefer to support the campaign with a gift designated for a specific purpose. Please contact Director of Annual Giving Luke Gorman at 603.526.3797 to learn more.

We celebrate major gifts with a variety of naming opportunities. Please contact Kathy Bonavist, vice president for Advancement, at 603.526.3729 or kathy.bonavist@colby-sawyer.edu to learn more.
