Matching Gifts

An easy way to double or even triple your donation to Roberts Wesleyan University is to find out if your company has a matching gift program. Many companies have such programs in place for current employees, while some even provide matching benefits to retirees and spouses. If your employer offers such a program, please request a matching gift form from your employer and send it completed and signed with your contribution.

Recurring Gifts

Recurring gifts give you the opportunity to be a factor in the future of Roberts one gift at a time. You can easily set up monthly or annual recurring gifts. Setting up a recurring gift allows multiple smaller gifts to build into a big impact over time. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a real difference.

It is also the most cost-effective and convenient means of fundraising for the Roberts Fund, allowing us to devote more of your valued dollars towards student success.

To set up your recurring gift, visit our Make a Gift page and make sure to click the ‘Recurring Gifts’ option to tailor your giving to fit your schedule. If you have any questions or would like to make changes to your current recurring gift, you can call the Office of Advancement at 585-594-6500.
