Ways to Give

Thank you for your interest in making a gift to School Year Abroad.

As you may know, SYA is financially and administratively independent of its founding and member schools, and your gift can make a significant impact.

ONLINE GIVING
Gifts may be made using your credit card, bank transfer, Google Pay or Apple Pay with the online giving form.

RECURRING GIVING
Make an even bigger impact by setting up a monthly or annual gift on a schedule that is convenient for you through the online giving form.

CORPORATE MATCHING GIFTS
Matching gifts are a wonderful way to increase the value of a gift to SYA. Donors are credited with the total of their gift plus the matching gift. Please send the completed employer matching gift form along with your contribution.

PLANNED GIFTS
Planned giving is an important option for supporting SYA. Many  alumni, parents, faculty and friends have included the school in their estate plans. Planned gifts include: bequests; charitable gift annuities; charitable trusts; property; gifts of life insurance policies; and retirement accounts. Contact the Advancement Office to learn more.
