Planned Giving Opportunities
In 1986, the Providence Society was established at D’Youville College to recognize alumni and friends who have demonstrated their commitment to the future of the college by designating a bequest, trust, insurance policy, stock, real estate or personal tangible property for the college. Members of the society have demonstrated an uncommon loyalty through a commitment to D’Youville's planned giving efforts.
In 2002, college received its largest planned gift to date, with the receipt of a $1.4 million bequest.
If you would like additional information about any aspect of planned giving, such as tax savings, assets management, how to make a gift while receiving income for life, and other donor benefits, please contact Patricia Van Dyke, Director of the Office of Planned Giving at (716) 829-7802.
Memorials & Tributes
D’Youville College accepts donations that are made to honor or remember individuals and events.
Memorials and tributes are considered ideal gifts because they are a great way to honor an individual as well as contribute to an organization or a cause.
Memorial gifts are an enduring remembrance of love for the families of the deceased, while tributes may honor professors, administrators, anniversaries or other occasions. They are also a way to ensure the legacy of an individual(s) will continue to live on through educational opportunities made possible by these gifts.
D’Youville College has many memorials and tributes that have been established over the years. Examples include: Named buildings, scholarships, a garden, Memorial Walkway, and student book vouchers. For more information, please contact Patricia Van Dyke, Director of the Office of Planned Giving at (716) 829-7802.
The D’Youville College Memorial Walkway is a memorable opportunity to support the college while honoring a family member, friend or favorite faculty member. The walk is an attractive brick pathway in a courtyard between the Academic Center and the Koessler Administration Building and features the statue of Our Lady of Wisdom. Bricks along the walk are available for purchase and will be inscribed according to your wishes.
