Ways to Give

We believe a Dominican education transforms lives and, quite literally, transforms the world. Join us today and help us realize this vision. Your support will make a difference.


Acacia Society

The Acacia Society celebrates alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends who have given a gift, at any level, for any purpose, to Dominican for two or more consecutive years. As a token of the university's appreciation, members are invited to an annual Champagne Brunch to hear directly from students who benefit from their generosity and will receive a commemorative Dominican calendar.

Gift Planning

Gift planning is a way for you to achieve your retirement and estate planning goals while supporting the University at a level greater than might otherwise be possible. Make Dominican a part of your legacy by including a gift of any size in your will or living trust. Learn more.

Honor/Memorial Gifts

Consider an honor or memorial gift to Dominican as a meaningful way to appreciate someone special. Recognize the accomplishment of a fellow alum, friend or family member with an honor gift. Remember the life of a friend, relative or colleague with a memorial gift. Call 415.257.1396 to make your gift over the phone or make your gift online via our secure online giving form.

Matching Gifts

Your donation can go twice as far. Many companies match their employees’ charitable contributions, and some companies even match the gifts of spouses or retirees. Check with your Human Resources department to see if your employer could match your gift to Dominican.

Stock Gifts

Many donors find gifts of appreciated securities are a wonderful way to support Dominican, while at the same time receiving substantial tax benefits. To make a gift of stock, view our delivery instructions.
