Recurring Gifts:

Recurring gifts offer you the ability to support the Pennington Biomedical Research Center and Foundation over a specified period of time or with an evergreen gift, which renews annually. By determining the amount, frequency (monthly or quarterly) and total number of payments, you are able to build a significant contribution to Pennington Biomedical through smaller installments.

To initiate or change your recurring gift, please contact the Foundation at (225) 763-2511 or visit Recurring Gifts Online.

Matching Gifts:

You can easily leverage the impact of your gift, if your employer or your spouse’s employer provides a matching gift program. Many companies also support charitable giving by retirees and board members. The matched gift will be directed to the same program or purpose identified with your base gift.

To initiate your matching gift to the Foundation, please contact the Foundation at (225) 763-2511. Alternatively, simply complete your corporate matching gift form and mail it along with your initial donation to allow the Foundation to process your request.

Tribute Gifts:

Tributes memorialize or honor someone special with a gift that holds the promise of a healthier tomorrow. Your confidential gift will be acknowledged with a beautiful card sent to the honoree or a family member. You will receive a confirmation card noting your gift. This is a tremendous way to remember someone, say thank you or acknowledge a celebration such as a birthday or holiday.

To initiate your tribute gift, contact the Foundation at (225) 763-2511 or visit Tribute Gifts Online.

Please consult your tax professional for advice related to your particular financial situation.
