Give through matching gifts

Give by your will or living trust

Including St. Mary’s in your will or living trust provides significant support to the University and reduces the tax burden on estates and inheritance. For more information on bequests, click here.

Give through your life insurance policy or financial accounts

Life insurance policies can be given to St. Mary’s through a new or existing policy. You can also designate St. Mary’s as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy. Many checking, savings, and brokerage accounts can also be bequeathed to St. Mary’s through a “payable on death” designation for the University. Click here for additional information.

Give through your savings bonds, or retirement benefits

Making a gift through a savings bond will help your fully appreciated savings bond avoid taxes and help to support St. Mary’s. As a partial, primary, or contingent beneficiary of your retirement plan, St. Mary’s will receive your ongoing support. Click here for additional information.
