You can make your gift:

We are pleased to offer this quick and easy option. Our safe, secure online giving site is a convenient way to make your gift or a pledge payment to the University.

Monthly Gifts
Monthly gifts are a quick and convenient way for you to support Plymouth State by credit card or eCheck. This giving option enables you to make a larger gift through a series of smaller payments on your own schedule. Monthly gifts remain in effect until you notify Plymouth State University of any changes, including new credit card or banking information or a desire to increase, decrease, or end your monthly gifts, either by phone at (800) 772-2620 or develop@plymouth.edu.

Gifts of cash are often the most convenient way to support Plymouth State. Checks may be made payable to Plymouth State University with a note about the purpose of the gift or you may print and complete a gift form (PDF) and mail payment to:

By Phone
To make your gift over the phone, please call Diane Tiffany ’76 at 1 (800) 772-2620. Regular office hours are Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. You may use your MasterCard, Visa, American Express, or Discover over the phone during regular business hours. The University Advancement Office does not retain credit card information obtained over the phone.

Matching Gifts
Did you know that you can double or even triple your gift to Plymouth State University? More than 10,000 employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made by their employees, employee’s family members, retired employees, and board members. These extra dollars make a big difference for Plymouth State. More than $100,000 in matching gifts have been received and put to immediate use at the University.

To find out if your employer has a matching gift program, search our matching gift database or contact your Human Resources Office. For more information, contact Diane Tiffany ’76 at (603) 535-2592.

Appreciated Securities 
Making a gift of publicly traded appreciated stocks or bonds may provide you with significant tax advantages. Securities may be used to make outright gifts or payments on pledges. The charitable gift is completed on the date ownership of the securities is transferred to Plymouth State University, and the value of the gift is the mean selling price of the security on the date of transfer. Due to potential complexities, the University can accept gifts of securities which are not publicly traded only on a case-by-case basis.

To facilitate the gift process, please contact Kit Otto ’80 at (800) 772-2620 before a transaction is initiated or with questions on gifts of securities.

Planned Gifts
Planned or deferred gifts allow you to make a major commitment to Plymouth State without sacrificing income needed today. Many alumni and friends have made contributions to Plymouth State through provisions in wills or trusts. Additionally, Plymouth State can be named as a beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or gift annuity.

For more information about planned giving options, contact Laure Morris, at (603) 535-2952.

Payroll Deduction
Payroll deduction is a convenient way for Plymouth State and other University System of New Hampshire employees to give to Plymouth State. Gifts can be spread over as many as 26 pay periods and can be designated to any number of funds, including the Annual Fund.

Please contact Diane Tiffany ’76 at (603) 535-2592 for additional information about your payroll deduction options.
