Through your generosity, you can have an impact on the day-to-day life of Saint Rose Students. Your unrestricted gift to The Saint Rose Fund helps bridge the gap between tuition and operating expenses at the College, and ensures that our students have the best educational experience possible. In order to continue fulfilling the educational tradition begun by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet, the College needs your support. Please show your commitment and loyalty to Saint Rose by giving as generously as you can.

Save taxes by making gifts of appreciated stock.

Your gift of securities helps you support Saint Rose’s mission and possibly provide a significant tax savings at the same time. You receive a tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift and avoid paying any capital gains tax on the increase in value of the stock.

Many corporations support higher education through employee matching gift programs.

Many corporations sponsor matching gift programs and will match charitable contributions made to higher education by their employees. Matching gift programs provide employees the opportunity to double, or triple the value of their gift to the college. Find out if your employer has a matching gift policy. If your employer does match gifts to higher education, please contact your Human Resource department for information or the necessary matching gift form.

Endowments help ensure Saint Rose’s viability.

An endowment is a gift made with the request that the initial gift remain intact and that only the interest is used during any year. This ensures that the original intent of the gift continues in perpetuity. Many times, endowments are established to accomplish a purpose designated by the donor.

Planned giving ensures Saint Rose’s stability for the future.

A planned gift made through a will or trust to Saint Rose is a gift that can help ensure the long term financial stability of The College of Saint Rose while providing you with the opportunity to become part of Saint Rose’s future. We would like to help you consider this kind of gift while planning for your financial future. All gifts are administered in strict compliance with the wishes of the donor. Please consult your tax advisor when considering this kind of gift.
