CentreEFT is safe, secure, and you’ll know when your account will be debited. You can choose to use your credit card or savings account. Withdrawals are made on or around the 4th of each month and can be skipped at any time.
Don’t Forget Your Matching Gift
Many companies offer a matching gift benefit for all employees (current & retired), which will increase your gift to Centre. Please request the appropriate paperwork from your Human Resources department and send your signed form to the address above.

By Planned Gift
Centre College has long received generous financial support from alumni and friends. Most often these gifts are made outright to Centre, thereby providing the entire amount up front. Centre also receives what are known as deferred gifts, in which the donor has deferred Centre’s receipt of the full value of the gift, or where the donor has reserved some benefit from the amount given. Deferred giving not only offers tremendous benefits to Centre, but can also help you enjoy tax and income advantages, particularly for gift plans that involve a transfer of assets during your lifetime, such as to a trust or life-income plan.
Some popular methods of deferred gift planning include Charitable Gift Annuity, Centre College Pooled Income Fund, Charitable Remainder Trust, Charitable Lead Trust, Gifts of Life Insurance, Gifts of Interest in Real Estate, Testamentary Gifts, Gifts of Retirement Account Assets, or Payable-on-Death (POD) Accounts.
Our Office of Gift Planning will work with you and your financial advisors to create a plan that works for you. For more information, please contact Jamey Leahey at 877-678-9822 or visit our planned giving website.
