Ways to Give

Thank you for your interest in making a gift to The Campaign for SYA.

As you may know, SYA is financially and administratively independent of its founding and member schools, and your gift can make a significant impact.

Listed below are the ways you may choose to give. If your question is not answered below, please contact the Advancement office at campaign@sya.org or 978.725.6828 ext. 186.

Online Giving

Gifts may be made using your credit card, bank transfer, Google Pay or Apple Pay with the online giving form.

Multiyear Pledges

While fundraising for the campaign will end on June 30, 2021, pledge payments can be made out as far as June 30, 2026 and payment structures are very flexible. Some donors make a lump sum gift, others have divided pledge payments equally over five years, and some give in increasing or decreasing increments depending on their personal financial plans. You control the terms of your pledge. Make a pledge here.

Recurring Giving

Make an even bigger impact by setting up a monthly or annual gift on a schedule that is convenient for you through the online giving form.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving is an important option for supporting SYA. Many alumni, parents, faculty and friends have included School Year Abroad in their estate plans. Planned gifts include: bequests; charitable gift annuities; charitable trusts; property; gifts of life insurance policies; and retirement accounts. Contact campaign@sya.org to learn more.
