How to Make a Gift

It's easy to make a gift:

Types of Gifts

  • Credit Card
    To complete a credit card transaction, use the W&M gift form. If this gift is for a specific library fund or endowment and you are utilizing the webform, select from the "Choose Your Gift" field the following options: Schools and Units, Swem Library, and then the specific fund you would like to donate to.

  • Check
    Make checks payable to "The College of William & Mary Foundation" and send them to P.O. Box 1693, Williamsburg, VA 23187.  Designate in the memo line that you wish your donation to go to Swem Library and indicate the allocation number or fund name if known.

  • Stocks
    Stocks are a strategically effective way to support our programs. For more information on giving through stocks, please contact Brenda Denton in the W&M Gift Accounting Office at (757) 221-1080.
  • Planned Gifts - Bequests and Trusts
    Planned gifts are a perfect way to make a long lasting contribution to Swem Library. They are also ideal for those who wish to support Swem Library significantly, but do not currently have the flexibility to make an outright gift.

  • Gifts of Materials and Equipment
    If you are interested in donating materials, please contact the External Relations office.

  • Matching Gifts
    Matching gifts are an excellent way to make your contribution go farther than it could on its own. Many companies are willing to match an employee's contribution dollar for dollar; some will even double or triple your gift. Please contact our office or your company's human resources to learn how to maximize this opportunity and gift.
