Ways to Give

Your gift to Princeton is essential to our ability to provide an extraordinary education. There are many ways to give, and we hope you will choose one that is meaningful to you. You can:

Support current students and faculty.

Unrestricted gifts from undergraduate and graduate alumni, parents, and friends go to work right away to help provide the "margin of excellence" that makes a Princeton education second to none.  Annual Giving sustains and enhances the University's distinctive academic programs and brings together Princetonians, parents, and friends of all generations.

Make a gift that benefits you and Princeton.

Planned gifts such as trusts and annuities strengthen the University and provide income to you or your family.  You can also benefit Princeton through your will. For alumni approaching their 50th Reunion and beyond, the Annual Giving Legacy program enables alumni to obtain major reunion class credit with life income gifts at the requisite level.

Support a program that's important to you.

Princeton’s athletic teams, art museum, library, and other campus organizations depend on the support of Friends groups to sustain their excellence.

Keep Princeton strong for the future.

Capital and endowment funds from generous donors are vital to ensuring that the University will continue to fulfill its mission of teaching, research, and service for generations to come.

Honor a loved one.

Whether through Annual Giving or a named scholarship or fellowship fund, an In Memoriam gift is a meaningful way to honor a friend or family member.

Benefit Princeton when giving from outside the US.

If you live outside the United States and are considering a gift to Princeton, we may be able to provide you with details such as fees, basic tax information, and partner organizations that can help process your gift.

Build a partnership with Princeton.

Princeton’s partnerships with corporations and foundations help transform theories and research that begin in classrooms and laboratories into real-world projects that can make a difference to society.
