Become a Sustainer With a Monthly Gift to Cotting School

Set up a monthly Electronic Fund Transfer from your checking account or we can automatically bill your credit card each month.  Acknowledgements of monthly gifts will be emailed, and in January we will mail you a letter documenting the total amount of donations made throughout the year.  Monthly commitments may be canceled at any time by contacting anyone in the Advancement Office.

Corporate Matching Gift

Many corporations offer matching gift programs for employees and their families. Most programs match on a dollar-by-dollar basis, and could double or triple the size of your gift. To take advantage of your company’s Matching Gift Program, please:

  • Contact your Human Resources office for a Matching Gift Form
  • Complete the required information and mail/email the form, along with your gift, to the Cotting School address listed above.

Cotting will return the completed form to your employer and receive the matching gift in your name. You will be credited for your gift, plus the amount matched by your employer. Many companies also match gifts from retirees and spouses as well.

Cotting’s Federal Charity ID Number is 04-2104328.

Memorial Gifts

Planned Gifts and Bequests

Membership in The Francis Joy Cotting Circle allows a donor to make a gift in which the commitment to Cotting is made in the present, but Cotting’s receipt of funds from the gift may be delayed until a future time. Donors who make planned gifts normally receive tax and/or income benefits.
