Ways To Give

Ways to Support Lesley University

Your gift to Lesley University will support presidential initiatives, areas that enhance the student and community experience, the strengthening of our profile and signature dedication to the Human Arts, and efforts to evaluate how to best develop Lesley's considerable real estate and virtual space. 

  • Online Giving

    Giving online is secure and easy. You can give a gift in any amount you choose and direct it toward a specific fund or program, or simply give an unrestricted gift that will help the university fund some of its most important initiatives. Get started with online giving.

  • Cash

    Cash gifts are accepted in the form of a credit card or check payment. You can give a cash gift to Lesley through our online giving system, or you can mail a personal check, payable to Lesley University, to the Office of Advancement, Lesley University, 29 Everett St., Cambridge, MA 02138. Gifts can also be made over the phone by calling 617.349.8345.

  • Matching Gifts

    Many employers match the charitable contributions of current employees, their spouses or family members, and retired employees. This can be a great way to leverage the impact of your gift. Check with your Human Resources Department to find out about Matching Gift opportunities.

  • Securities

    If you have stock worth more today than when you bought it, consider giving these securities to Lesley. You avoid tax on the gain in value and can take an income tax deduction for the full market value of the gift.

    Note: Many brokerages do not identify the individual who has made a gift of stock to Lesley University. Please let us know when Lesley University should expect a gift of stock and the approximate value. A confirmation of receipt and a proper acknowledgement is then possible. 

  • Planned Giving

    Income for life based on a donation. An opportunity to pass assets to family in a tax-wise fashion. Income and Capital Gains Tax Savings.
