Recurring Gift

With a recurring gift, you set how much and how often you make your gift to Salem Academy. This automatic credit card payment continues on the schedule you choose, until you let Salem know of changes. Recurring gifts sustain Salem and provide a wonderful financial foundation for the institution. To set up a recurring gift and make your first gift, use the My Gift to Salem form and choose ‘Recurring Gift’.
