The Power of Pledges

Did you know that by committing to making a series of donations, even over a period of several years, you can be recognized as if you had given the combined total all at once? A pledge to donate $20,000 annually for five years, for example, will be recognized as a gift of $100,000.

Such a commitment can allow you to select a gift you might not be able to fulfil otherwise. So if you’ve thought about making multiple gifts over a given period of time, consider making a commitment to a regular annual donation that will be recognized at a higher level.

By combing yearly gifts into multi-year pledge, donors have a greater impact on The Mico and the future of the University, its faculty, and its students.
