Ways to Give

Giving to St. John’s College

Online Donations

The college accepts American Express, Visa, MasterCard or Discover on a secure site. You will receive an email confirmation of your gift, followed by a printed acknowledgement by mail. You can also arrange for a multi-year pledge or a recurring gift. Make a gift online.

Gifts of Stock and Securities

Gifts of appreciated assets, rather than cash, can be made to St. John’s College and may provide special tax advantages to you, the donor. Giving appreciated stocks, bonds, or mutual funds can allow for the avoidance of capital gains taxes and, in most cases, a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the donation. To learn more about these types of gifts, please contact Phelosha Collaros at 505-984-6109 or phelosha.collaros(at) Learn more about giving gifts of stock and securities.

Amazon Smile

Support St. John’s College when you shop at Amazon using the link, and 0.5% of the price from your eligible purchases will be donated to St. John’s.

Gifts by Mail or Telephone

It is easy to make a gift or arrange a pledge by calling the Development and Alumni Relations Office. Pledges often allow you to consider a gift of a larger size than a one-time gift, as pledges offer the flexibility to spread out the gift over a specified period of time. Pledges are not legally binding and can be set according to your desired payment plan.
