Annual Gifts

Annual giving is the primary funding resource through which alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends support Seton Hall’s day-to-day operations. Gifts can be unrestricted (to provide administrators with the flexibility to address immediate needs) or designated to support a specific school, college, program or other University initiative.

Restricted Gifts

Which part of Seton Hall reflects your personal values and priorities? Is it student scholarships, athletics or something else? Restricted giving allows donors to designate where and how their generosity will have the greatest impact. So whether you care about biology research or campus construction, making a restricted gift will support a priority that matters most to you.

Endowed Gifts

While annual giving provides current support, gifts to an endowment (an investment fund) provide a long-term impact because the principal — the actual gift — is never spent. Only the investment earnings from the gift are used for funding purposes. Thanks to increasingly generous philanthropy and strategic, prudent investments, Seton Hall’s endowment portfolio totals $245 million as of October 31, 2015.

Planned Gifts

Also known as estate gifts, these agreements provide for a contribution to Seton Hall from a donor’s estate plans. Possibilities include naming the University in your will or as a beneficiary in your retirement plans, among many other options.
