Every gift counts.

Ways to Give
Your Gift Makes a Difference
With your support, Anna Maria students are given the opportunity to be successful both on campus and in the world after graduation.
The Anna Maria Fund

  • A commitment to service and social responsibility reflective of our Catholic community.

Have You Considered a Gift of Stock?
We're happy to answer any questions you have about making a stock gift to AMC or any other questions you might have about giving. Email us at  or call (508) 849-3341.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
You can make your gift to the Annual Fund in memory of, or tribute to, someone special in your life. Memorial and tribute gifts are recognized in our Annual Report and the person you're honoring (or their family) will be notified of your gift made in their name.
Planned Giving
One of the easiest, but most significant ways to support AMC is to make a legacy (or planned) gift. Whatever your personal financial goals are, a planned gift can help you meet your individual needs and strengthen Anna Maria College at the same time. Through the Legacy Society, the College recognizes donors who make special planned gifts to support future generations of Anna Maria College students. What does this mean for you? Through a planned gift you can:
  • Establish an endowed scholarship fund

  • Support new construction or renovation of existing campus facilities

  • Strengthen academic programming and faculty development

  • Allow your gift to be used where it is most needed at the time

Options for Planned Giving
There are a number of ways to make a legacy gift. Our planned giving staff will be pleased to discuss these options with you, and find the right gift type(s) for you and your current situation. Please contact us by email at  or call (508) 849-3641.
  • Bequests

A charitable bequest through your will is the easiest way to provide a lasting gift to Anna Maria College. You can choose to leave specific, named assets (such as property or goods) to the College, a specific sum of money, or a certain percentage of your estate (or the residual after all other needs are met). You can also designate your gift for a specific purpose or use the gift to endow a named scholarship fund. By making a provision in your will to leave a financial gift, or a donation of property or goods to Anna Maria College, you will perpetuate your support for the College.
  • Retirement Plans

You can designate Anna Maria College the owner/beneficiary of an IRA, 401(K), 403(b) or other pension or retirement plan. By naming Anna Maria College, you will ensure that your estate will receive an estate tax charitable deduction for this gift. You can designate a specific amount, or a percentage of the death benefit, and you can restrict your gift to a specific purpose, or make an unrestricted gift to the College.
  • Life Insurance

You can make Anna Maria College the owner/beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy, and your estate will receive an estate tax deduction for your gift. A younger person, who wants to benefit Anna Maria College can use a portion of his or her annual gifts to pay premiums on an insurance policy that benefits the College. Or if an existing life insurance policy no longer serves the purpose for which it was created, it could be an ideal asset to transfer to Anna Maria College.
  • Real Estate

You may give your house, farm or vacation home to Anna Maria College. You will receive a tax deduction and retain the right to use the property for your own use during your lifetime, after which the property then becomes fully owned by the College.
