Recurring Gifts

Giving monthly or quarterly allows donors to make larger gifts than they could through a single gift. You can set up a recurring payment on a debit or credit card, or have your gift automatically withdrawn from your checking account. 

To make your gift monthly or quarterly, select the recurring frequency on our online form.

Checks & Credit Cards

To support Earlham by check, please make it payable to "Earlham College" and mail it to our office.  Contact the Alumni & Development Office at 765-983-1639 to make your gift by credit card or use our online form.

Stocks & Securities

Gifts of appreciated stocks and securities may provide donors with significant tax savings. In addition to receiving a charitable deduction for the full market value of the gift, donors avoid capital gains tax and any commissions payable upon the sale of the stock or security. Learn more

Real Estate

Gifts of real estate can be structured in a variety of ways to address financial planning needs. Properties particularly suitable as gifts include primary residences, vacation/second homes, investment properties, inherited farms, and fractional interests in properties. Gifts of real estate can also be structured in ways that result in income for the donor. Learn more

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that will match charitable contributions made by their employees. Check with your employer's human resources department to obtain a matching gift form. Complete the employee section and mail it along with your gift to our office.


Gifts of tangible personal property that represent non-cash contributions, such as works of art, books, scientific equipment or other physical items are possible. Earlham accepts gifts in-kind that are appropriate to its mission and financially sustainable. Learn more

Donor Advised Funds

Gifts from a donor advised fund should be made payable to Earlham College and mailed to our office. Please consult with your donor advised fund administrator for applicable policies and procedures in recommending a grant to Earlham. Our tax ID (or EIN) number is 35-0868073. Please note that donor advised fund gifts cannot be used to satisfy a donor's pledge.

Bequests & Planned Gifts

Planned giving or bequests are another valuable way to make a gift Earlham. Including the college in your will, as a designation of life insurance or retirement plans, or through a life income arrangement such as a gift annuity or trust can have a lasting impact on Earlham’s future while often simultaneously meeting personal financial goals and objectives.
