Support Aquinas College

Since 1961, Aquinas College has continued to provide students with an exemplary liberal arts education in an atmosphere permeated with faith and directed to the intellectual, moral and professional formation of the human person.

This unique educational opportunity offered by Aquinas College would not be possible without the support of our benefactors, who are willing to invest in the mission of Aquinas, to form educators sent forth to teach, preach, and witness to Truth and Charity.

You can support Aquinas in a variety of ways:

Online Gifts

Secure credit card gifts may be made online through our online giving portal.

Cash or Check

Please make your check payable to Aquinas College and send to:

Aquinas College 
4210 Harding Pike
Nashville, TN 37205

Credit Card

You may use our secure online giving portal, or you can make a gift by speaking with Kim Hoover at 615-383-3230 x467 during regular business hours.

Stock Options / Appreciated Securities

If you own appreciated securities that have been held for more than twelve months, and give them as a gift to Aquinas College, you can benefit by:
• claiming a charitable income tax deduction for the full value of the shares;
• avoiding the capital gains tax that would have been due if the shares were sold.
Please consult your tax attorney or tax preparer for the deductibility of your gift. Circumstances will vary with income and other factors.

Gifts of stock are sold upon receipt. You will be credited for the value of the stock on the date the gift is made and a receipt is generated that reflects that value.

Please specify the name of the security and number of shares you are donating. Please instruct your broker to transfer the shares to:

Morgan Stanley
Attn: Chris Long
Phone: (615) 269-2455
Account Number: 471-106400-206
DTC #0015
Account Name: The Dominican Campus / Aquinas College
Account Address: 4210 Harding Pike, Nashville, TN 37205

Please contact President Sister Cecilia Anne Wanner, O.P. at (615) 297-7545 x423 or to help us track your gift in a timely manner and to ensure that you receive the proper credit for your gift.


Payment schedules can be arranged for your convenience, either annually, semi-annually, quarterly or monthly. Pledge reminders will be sent to you as per your instructions.

Matching Gifts

A matching gift occurs when a company matches charitable contributions made by its employees. Many donors are able to increase the impact of their contributions as most companies will match dollar for dollar, and some will double or triple match employee gifts.

Your human resources representative can tell you if your company has a matching gift program and can provide you with the necessary form, which you may complete, sign and send to the school.

For more information, please call Kim Hoover at (615) 297-7545 x467.

IRA Charitable Rollover Gifts

For those aged 70½ or older, you may be able to make a tax-free transfer to Aquinas College from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

Planned Gifts

Making a planned gift through a will, estate plan or another type of deferred gift such as one through an IRA or retirement fund, life insurance policy, or charitable trust provides future support and opportunities for short- and long-term tax benefits. More information can be found on our Planned Giving page.
