COVID-19: Essential Information

Multiyear Pledge

A pledge is a commitment by an individual or corporation to make a future contribution. Donors find that they can increase the impact of a gift by making a multiyear pledge, often during reunion years. By spreading payments over a period of time—typically five years or less—pledges allow donors to make larger commitments and fulfill them at a comfortable pace. Donors receive an income-tax deduction for the amount given each year.

Pledge years, like Middlebury’s fiscal year, are based on the 12-month period running from July 1 through June 30.
