Ways to Give

Williams gratefully accepts gifts in many forms: from online credit-card contributions to gifts of securities and from cash wire transfers to life-income agreements. Learn more about these and other ways to give below.

All gifts, no matter the amount or the giving method, count as part of Teach It Forward: The Campaign for Williams.

The vast majority of gifts to Williams are directed to the Alumni Fund and Parents Fund. Gifts of $250,000 or more may also be directed to the endowment or a parallel fossil fuel free investment fund.

Please note these deadlines for year end gifts:

  • Online gifts must be complete by 11:59 PM on Saturday, December 31.
  • Regardless of the date on the check, all checks sent by mail must be postmarked by 12/31. (Post Office locations nationwide that are normally open on Saturday will be open Saturday, December 31, but many will shorten lobby hours and close at noon.)
  • Because the 31st falls on a Saturday, stock transfers must be completed before markets close on Friday, December 30.
