Ways to Give

Ways to Give


Your gift to Villanova can take many forms.  

  • An outright gift can be put to work immediately to benefit students in and out of the classroom.
  • Endowed support can meet your long-term financial planning goals while establishing a fund that benefits students in perpetuity.

We are ready to work with you to create the most beneficial gift for you, for your family, and for Villanova University.

No matter how you choose to invest in Villanova, you will be part of a group of committed alumni, parents and friends who are helping to create transformational experiences for students today and tomorrow.

Faculty and Staff

Members of Villanova's faculty and staff have the opportunity to give through our online payroll deduction form. This is a secure form that is accessed through your Villanova single sign-on.

If you have any questions, please email or call

Important: Please Send All Charitable Donations to Villanova’s Gift and Pledge Processing Team

All charitable donations arriving at—or transferred to—any part of the University should be immediately sent to the Villanova Gift and Pledge Processing team. 

One of the primary functions of the Banner database is to track the charitable contributions made to Villanova University. This information is of the utmost importance to the fundraising efforts of the University, as well as the stewardship of our donors.

**Please do not deposit charitable donations through the Bursar’s office or through other campus methods. All charitable donations, which include cash, checks, credit cards, pledges, letters of intent, will commitments, etc. must come directly to the University Advancement Gift and Pledge Processing department to be entered into Banner.

We ask that you forward any checks (and avoid holding them) to the Gift & Pledge Processing department the same day they are received.

Gifts can be hand delivered or sent via campus mail courier to Gift & Pledge Processing, 2 Aldywn Lane, Villanova, PA 19085.

Matching Gifts

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees.

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our school may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
