Support the Educational Advancement Foundation

Your Support is Vital

Give and SupportThe Educational Advancement Foundation succeeds through the generosity of friends, corporate and community supporters and people like you. Generous contributions make it possible for individuals from all walks of life to complete a program of study, obtain seed money to transform an idea into a reality or start or complete a research project. Making a difference would not be possible without the commitment of EAF donors.

There are many ways to support the Foundation's work. Examples include memorial gifts, stocks, bonds, named endowment funds or fellowships, bequests, trusts, annuities, charitable remainder trusts, charitable lead trusts and charitable gift annuities.

Gifts in Honor or Memorial

Your gift will have additional significance and meaning if you choose to contribute in honor or memory of a loved one. EAF will send a card to those you designate to receive notification of your honor or memorial gift. To make a gift in someone's honor, please include the name and address of that person. To make a gift in someone's memory, please include the name of that person and also the name and address of any individual(s), family or friends you would like us to notify.

Legacy Gifting

Consider a method of planned giving. Examples include gifts of life insurance (such as naming EAF as the policy beneficiary) and gifts left to the Foundation in Wills, which don't need to be large or prevent you from taking care of your family and loved one.
