Ways to Give

There are several ways you can support the Mount—all of them easy to do.

To meet your individual philanthropic needs, Mount St. Mary’s College accepts gifts of all kinds, including:

Cash

Gifts in the form of cash, credit cards, and checks are accepted regardless of amount. Make an online credit card gift now using our online form, or you can call 213.477.2500 for assistance. Checks should be made payable to Mount St. Mary’s College and can be mailed to:
   Mount St. Mary’s College
   Institutional Advancement
   Doheny Campus
   10 Chester Place
   Los Angeles, CA 90007

Gifts of Securities

You may donate securities, which are credited at the full fair market value based on the average of the high and low quoted selling price on the day you relinquish control of the asset to Mount St. Mary’s College. When you give appreciated securities, you avoid the capital gains tax that would have been due with a profitable sale. Charitable deductions associated with appreciated securities can provide substantial tax savings. Please go to the Gifts of Securities website or contact Cindy Hizami, Director of Planned Giving, at 213.477.2740 or chizami@msmc.la.edu for detailed instructions.

Matching Gifts

Many employers will often match charitable gifts made by their employees or their employees’ spouses. Some even match gifts for their retirees. A few employers will double or even triple your gift! Different employers have different policies and procedures, however, so you will need to speak with your human resources department for more information.

Planned Gifts

To give a planned gift through a trust, will, life insurance, or retirement plan, please go to the Planned Gifts website or contact Cindy Hizami, Director of Planned Giving, at 213.477.2740 or chizami@msmc.la.edu for more information.
