  • Recurring gifts to the Kenyon Fund can be made through convenient automatic deductions from your credit card or checking account. Just select the recurring gift button or call us at 740-427-5152.
  • Matching gifts through your employer can increase the power of your gift. If your gift is eligible, please request a matching gift form from your employer or spouse’s employer.

Gifts of Stock

Many alumni, parents and friends of Kenyon are making their gifts by donating securities to the College. You may find that you can make a larger contribution by giving stock — particularly stock which has appreciated in value — than you could by giving cash. Learn more about gifting securities.

Gifts of Real Estate or Other Property

Gifts of real estate can be very attractive for you and for Kenyon. We would be happy to explore with you a gift of a home, vacation property, condominium, undeveloped land or other real estate. Gifts of property other than cash securities or real estate can also offer you significant tax advantages while benefiting Kenyon. Contact us.

Memorial Gifts

Kenyon welcomes memorial gifts of any size. We encourage donors to direct memorial gifts of less than $100,000 to the Kenyon Fund, which supports all of the operations of the College. In addition, if the deceased established an endowed fund at Kenyon during his or her lifetime, a donor can direct a gift to that fund or to any another fund already established at the College. If the gift is in memory of a Trustee, the donor may wish to consider directing it to the Trustees' Bicentennial Fund. Contact us.

For gifts greater than $100,000, a new named endowed fund can be established in memory of the deceased. An endowed memorial fund can be established at the time of death or at any later time.

Planned Giving

Creative gift and estate planning can benefit Kenyon, you and your loved ones. Learn more about planned gifts.
