ways to give

Whether you choose to give to the Annual Fund; make an endowed leadership gift of $25,000 or more; provide a gift or grant through your business or foundation; or plan to make future gift, Jarvis Christian University appreciates your commitment to the education of its extraordinary students. You can make your gifts through the following ways:

Outright Gifts

These gifts yield immediate tax benefits and have an immediate impact on Jarvis. The College accepts American Express, MasterCard and VISA Discover credit cards by Phone.  Donors have the option to make their gift one-time or on a recurring basis.

Online One Time Giving & Recurring Gifts

NOTE: If you are enrolled in our recurring giving program (either through EFT or Credit Card), and need to make changes to your contribution, method of payment, gift amount, etc. please call Institutional Advancement at 903-730-4890 ext. 3003.


A pledge is a written commitment to pay a specified amount sometime in the future. It may be paid annually, quarterly or monthly over one to five years.

Establishing a pledge is another way to make a commitment to Jarvis Christian University. By combining gifts into a multiyear pledge, donors have a greater impact on the future of the institution and our faculty and students.

To make a pledge a donor determines the total pledge amount, designation of the gift, the period of time over which the pledge will be paid, and the frequency of payments. A donor can set up a convenient payment plan by check or credit card. Depending on the donor’s preference, the Office of Institutional Advancement and Development will send annually, quarterly or monthly pledge reminders as each payment is due.
