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.

Listed below are the ways you may choose to give. If your question is not answered below, please visit our Giving FAQs or contact the Advancement office at giving@sya.org or 978.725.6828 ext. 186.

Online Giving

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

Recurring Giving

You may be able to have more of an impact than you thought possible by making automatic recurring gifts on a monthly or annual basis.

Set up a schedule that is convenient for you through the online giving form.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving is an important option for supporting SYA. Many of SYA's 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 Development Office to learn more.
