A pledge is a way to donate to Holy Names University on a fixed and constant basis. It is an agreement to donate under the conditions you establish. Gifts can be made monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, or in other periods convenient to you.

To pledge a gift, inform the Office of University Advancement about the total amount of the pledge, the number and period of installments, and each installment amount. The two most common ways to make donations through a pledge are:

  • By credit card. The donor provides the Office of University Advancement with the credit card number, its expiration date and security code, the name as it appears on the card, and the charge that will be made automatically on the dates established.
  • By check. The donor agrees to send a check for the installment amount on the dates established in the pledge.
