Alumni and friends who are Sustainers give recurring gifts to Stevens by deducting a pre-set amount from their debit card every month.

These gifts are a convenient way to give consistent support to Stevens. Donors can designate their gift for an academic program, athletics or any other interest.

Recurring gifts give Stevens the steady and dependable support the university needs to keep long-term commitments to top priorities. These gifts allow a donor to split a larger gift into smaller, manageable installments while still maximizing their impact on Stevens.

Just as the Phoenix, built by John Stevens in the early 1800s, sustained its cargo and passengers over ocean waters, Sustainers make ongoing, recurring gifts that provide reliable funding for the university while minimizing fundraising costs, ensuring more gifts directly support student success, faculty excellence and this vibrant and beautiful campus.
