Ways to Give


As the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, many Villanova students are now facing the unexpected costs of travel expenses, transitioning to online learning and more.  

To help the University support our students in these challenging circumstances, please consider making a gift to the Student Emergency Fund

For updates, additional information and FAQs about the University's response to the coronavirus, please visit our COVID-19 Update page.

Looking for the quickest way to make an impact? The fastest way to give and receive gift acknowledgment is through our secure online giving site and electronic funds transfer. Checks will take longer to process due to University closures. Thank you for your continued support of Villanova!


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.

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.
