Donors may also designate a contribution to a specific fund or area of interest, whether it be a named scholarship or a faculty research project.
Gifts to Redeemer come in many forms and may be given outright, pledged over time, or deferred.
- cash (including cheques, credit card donation or on-line contributions)

Larger contributions may be committed over time: from two to five years.
