Do you accept a personal check? Credit cards?
Yes, we will accept your personal check. We also take Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover at the Development Office over the phone, 1-877-769-2443. You can make a donation online, using ANY major credit card at our secure site here.
While we hope all donors will make annual unrestricted gifts, you may choose to designate your gift to a specific fund such as student scholarships. To do so, please include this information with your gift.
The Annual Fund, which is the cornerstone of giving to the College, provides crucial unrestricted dollars for the College’s annual operating budget. These dollars represent approximately ten percent of the operating budget and provide flexibility for the College to meet needs as they arise.
Alumni, parents, and friends are usually contacted two to three times throughout the year through our direct mail campaign and via e-mail. In addition, current students may call you seeking support for the Annual Fund during our Phonathons throughout the year.
Call us toll free at 1-877-769-2443.
There are numerous opportunities available for establishing an endowed fund, and the minimum needed varies by fund. For example, to set up a named unrestricted fund, the minimum needed is $25,000; however, to establish a restricted fund takes an investment of $50,000 or more. For more information regarding the different naming opportunities available, please contact the Development Office at 1-877-769-2443.
While all gifts to the College are important, gifts to the Annual Fund will count toward your class gift.
Can I donate a horse to the College?
Yes, you can donate a horse to the College. Gifts in kind are gifts of tangible personal property, such as artwork, horses, and real estate, which can be used by Randolph College or sold for funds to help support our continuing efforts to provide a superior liberal arts education. If you are interested in donating a horse or any other such items to Randolph, please contact the Development Office at 1-877-769-2443.
Can I make my gift in honor or memory of another person?
You can celebrate a significant occasion, remember a classmate or loved one, commemorate a milestone or recognize someone special with an honorary or memorial gift in their name to Randolph College. Whether you make your gift online, by mail or by phone, we will gratefully acknowledge your thoughtful donation by notifying the person or family member you designate. Your donation will honor your friends or loved ones and help sustain our Randolph community.
What is the endowment? Can I make gifts to the endowment?
The College’s enduring commitment to providing an exceptional education for its students has throughout the years been insured in part by a strong endowment. Through the generosity of many foresighted alumnae, alumni, parents, friends, and organizations, more than 450 endowments and named funds have been created in perpetuity to support the College’s faculty, students, and programs. Gifts for endowment can fund professorships, scholarships, faculty development, or specific program areas such as the library, global studies, or technology.
