Ways to make a gift:

  • Pledges (up to 3 years) may be given for SOWELA’S greatest needs or designated to begin an endowed scholarship or support a specific program.
  • Matching Gifts to SOWELA allow your gift to double (and sometimes triple) in value. Many businesses and corporations have a Matching Gift Program to encourage philanthropic giving by their employees. A Matching Gift Program Form masy be obtained from your employer’s Human Resources Department.
  • In-Kind Gifts must fulfill a stated need of the College. Appraisals may be required.
  • Securities may be deducted at full market value without paying capital gains taxes on appreciated value. If you wish to donate a gift of stock, please contact the Foundation office for more information.

Whatever your passion is as a donor, we have a program or fund to match. Contact our Foundation office at (337) 421-6903 or nicole.rasco@sowela.edu. We would love to build a meaningful partnership with you!
