How do sustaining gifts work?

Set up your gift one time, and it will automatically charge your credit card or deduct from your bank account according to your choices of:

  • Frequency – select monthly, quarterly, or yearly
  • Amount – select how each payment should be
  • Duration – select an end date or keep it open-ended

You will receive an annual tax receipt summarizing your gifts. In addition, you can stop or adjust your gift at any time by calling 717-337-8072.
