Recurring gifts allow donors to break up larger gifts into more manageable payments over a 12-month period to reach their philanthropic goals. The total amount of the gift is divided, and payments are deducted monthly from a credit/debit card. This way of giving provides a steady, reliable source of income that allows the college to meet the ever-changing needs of its students.

  • For example, if the prospect indicates that a $1,000 gift is unmanageable, suggest a recurring gift as a payment plan that will allow them to spread payments over a period of months. Giving just $83.34/month would enable the donor to make that $1,000 gift. 

  • To enroll, donors may visit www.dickinson.edu/gift and click on “I would like to make a recurring gift.” Donors can choose the gift amount, frequency and if they would like notifications.
