    • Endowment Gifts

      Endowments are funds that are allowed to mature over time, ensuring the long-term stability and future of an institution. Giving to the endowment helps Archmere plan its financial future, which ultimately shapes the educational program we deliver and the environment in which we offer it.

    • Matching Gifts

      Many companies match employees’ and retirees’ contributions. Contact your company’s Human Resources Office for easy instructions on how to double, sometimes even triple, your gift to Archmere. 

      How Matching Gift Programs Work? (Procedures can vary from company to company.) 
      • Obtain a matching gift form from your employer (usually from the Human Resources Office).
      • Complete the form and mail it with your gift to Archmere.
      • Archmere’s Office of Institutional Advancement will certify the gift has been received and return the form to your employer.
      • Your company will then send a matching gift to Archmere and double the size of your gift!
    • Gifts of Appreciated Securities

      Gifts of Appreciated Securities (stocks, bonds or mutual funds) are an easy and tax beneficial way to make charitable contributions. Capital gains taxes are completely avoided and you receive an income tax deduction for the full market value of the security on the date of the transfer to Archmere.
