Three types of online gifts:

  • A One-Time Gift is charged to your credit card and is designated for the current campaign.

  • An Installment Gift is a specific gift amount that is charged monthly, in equal installments, to your credit card, with the total gift amount to be paid in full by June 30. The total gift amount paid by June 30 will be designated for the current campaign. (Minimum total gift amount is $25.)
  • A Recurring Gift is a gift designated for this year’s campaign and renews for future campaigns. This gift is charged to your credit card in the interval you choose: monthly, quarterly, or annually.
