Many contributions are outright gifts or pledges, while some donors prefer to make multiyear pledges to be paid over a specific period of time. Others prefer to establish an endowment fund to support a scholarship or program in perpetuity.
In addition, many gifts are in the form of equipment or appreciated securities — and an increasing number are arranged through bequests, wills, and life-income agreements.
No matter which type of gift you choose, every donation helps Wentworth continue to provide a tradition of excellence in education.
Corporate and foundation gifts In addition to gifts from individuals, Wentworth also receives generous support from foundations, corporations, government agencies, and other organizations that help the Institute maintain our strong commitment to a hands-on technical education.
