Giving FAQs


Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes, your gift to St. Vladimir’s—a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization—is tax deductible as allowed by law and a receipt will be issued for your gift. Year-end gifts must be postmarked December 31st in order to be recorded in that same tax year.

Is my credit card information secure?

Credit card information is not stored permanently, and is used only to process the transaction for which it is intended. This site utilizes industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) servers to encrypt your information and prevent unauthorized access.

Shortly after a donation or refund is processed, you will receive a confirmation via email. You are advised to print out and save a copy of this verification confirmation for your records.

Can I determine the use of my gift?

Most donors give to the Seminary Fund for unrestricted giving directed to areas of the highest need and impact. Our online giving forms offer additional several options.

If you would like to make a contribution a specific scholarship fund or other special initiative, please contact: Sharon Macrina Ross, Director of Institutional Advancement at or 914-961-8313 ext. 317.
