Ways to Give

There are several ways to show your support by making a gift to IMSA. If you don’t see the information you need below, please contact us at (630) 907-5040 or giving@imsa.edu.

Online Gifts

Gifts can be given online using the online gift form. Online gifts are processed securely through Blackbaud Merchant Services.

Electric Funds Transfer (EFT)

Electric Funds Transfer (EFT) is a secure way to deliver your gifts directly and automatically from your bank to the IMSA Fund. When you make an EFT gift, your bank disburses the funds automatically according to your instructions, and until you decide to stop. To make your gifts via EFT, simply download, complete and return the EFT Authorization Form to the IMSA Fund along with a voided, unused check.

Set Up Monthly Recurring Donation

You can also set up a monthly recurring contribution to the IMSA Fund by calling the development office at 630-907-5040. Online gifts are processed securely through Blackbaud Merchant Services.

Use PayPal to make a monthly contribution to the IMSA Fund! By selecting the PayPal subscription option, you will make a monthly recurring gift to IMSA and the IMSA Fund. This option helps keep our costs down, and your monthly contribution adds up to be very significant at the end of the fiscal year!

Double Your Donation through a Matching Gift!

Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to contribute to charitable organizations. Certain employers even provide matching funds to support employee volunteer hours. Most companies match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of your gift!  This is a simple way to increase the impact of your gift. Click here to see if your employer has a matching gifts program.

Tribute Gifts

You can also make your contribution In Memory or In Honor of someone.  A tribute gift is a unique way to honor someone, celebrate a special occasion, or memorialize someone who has touched your life. The honoree or family will receive a personalized letter notifying them of your special gift. Tribute gifts can be made via the online gift form.
