    Planned Giving

    Tenley Hall Giving has long been a tradition at Saint Vincent College.  Every member of our campus community has, in one way or another, benefited from the generosity of others.  Planned gifts offer an opportunity to extend your benevolence beyond your lifetime by making a commitment to the future of SVC. 

    Including Saint Vincent in your long-term financial or estate plan is a big decision that results in a lasting impact on the people and places important to you.  Such gifts are unique: just like the passion, spirit and creativity of those inspired to give.  Whether through endowing scholarship for future students or supporting a favored area of interest, planned gifts provide essential support to Saint Vincent while at the same time helping you achieve your own personal and financial goals.
