It is easy to double or even triple your gift through matching gifts made by your employer or your spouse’s employer. In fact, some companies even match gifts made by retired employees! 

To find out if your company matches gifts, simply check with your Human Resources Department, which can also advise you on how to submit the matching gift paperwork. You submit the paperwork, then we confirm the gift, and just like that, your support will go that much further in helping DelVal students!

One of the easiest ways to support DelVal is through recurring gifts, which are automatically charged to your credit card throughout the year in the amount and on the schedule (weekly, monthly or quarterly) that you choose.

To set up your recurring gift, please visit our secure online giving portal and select Recurring Gift from the drop-down menu, then indicate the desired frequency of your gift. You may also contact Rachel Mauer, director of annual giving, at 215.489.2977 or Rachel.Mauer@delval.edu.

Are you a DelVal faculty or staff member interested in setting up a recurring gift? Please consider giving through our easy and convenient payroll deduction program. Simply complete the payroll deduction form and your gift - which can be allocated to the program area of your choice - will be automatically deducted from each paycheck. For questions about the payroll deduction program, please contact Kevin Ladden, director of advancement services, at 215.489.2472 or Kevin.Ladden@delval.edu.
