Gifts can also be directed to a specific project, program, or capital campaign area. Cash gifts may be made outright or by pledge, and are tax-deductible as permitted by law. For more information regarding Capital Campaign gifts or Gift Planning, please contact Charlene F. Pontbriand, Senior Vice President, Advancement.

Credit Card Gifts/Pledges by Phone

Call 617-371-1709 during business hours; we will process your gift securely. For security reasons, please do not leave your credit card information on voice mail or include it in an e-mail message. You can also make your gift online 24 hours a day.

Gifts of Stock, Bonds, or Mutual Fund Shares

Outright gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, bonds, mutual fund shares) are tax-deductible at full fair-market value if the donor has owned the asset for at least 12 months. To avoid capital gains taxes, you must transfer the ownership of the securities to the NECHV brokerage account.

Gifts of closely held stock (usually stock in a family-owned business) also carry benefits for the donor. The stock must have been held for at least 12 months for you to claim a charitable deduction at full fair market value.
