Charitable Donations

The generosity of our alumni and friends helps support our dynamic community and ensures that NESA remains one of the country’s leading acupuncture schools.

When you make a gift to NESA, you are making a sound investment with long-term potential. Your gift supports our renowned curriculum, innovative research, and our exceptional faculty and students. There are many ways to make a gift to NESA. Each offers distinct benefits, both to you and the School.

Ways to Give

Annual Fund

Making a gift to the NESA Annual Fund is one of the most efficient and powerful ways that alumni and friends can make a true impact on the NESA student experience. A gift to the Annual Fund strengthens our programs, facilities, research, and community outreach. 

Student Scholarships

The James and Isabel So Scholarship Fund allows you to support the next generation of deserving students and helps ensure that NESA remains a place where the region’s most skilled and respected acupuncturists choose to earn their degree.

Library Donations

NESA welcomes gifts of books and materials that fall within the scope of the Library’s collecting activities. Library funds are used to purchase, maintain, and preserve materials in all formats, providing critical educational tools for students and faculty.

Planned Giving

Planned gifts are a tremendous source of support and help secure NESA’s future. There are many ways planned gifts can benefit you, your family, and NESA. We encourage you to contact us to discuss the planned gift options available and which option would work best for you based on your financial and philanthropic objectives.

Gifts of Stock

Giving shares of appreciated stock, bonds, mutual funds, and other securities can be an excellent way to make a gift to NESA. When you donate securities in lieu of cash, you do not pay any capital gains tax on the appreciation in the securities, while you receive a deduction for their full market value on the date of your gift. As you consider a gift of stock, please remember to let us know when and how we can expect to receive your donation. Standard stock transfer procedures at most brokerages do not include information about the sender of stock, so it can be difficult to track who made the gift.

Naming Opportunities

Endowed funds and named gifts enable you to honor a loved one and demonstrate your support for NESA. An array of opportunities exists for donors interested in naming opportunities from named scholarship endowments to naming facilities. We encourage you to contact us to discuss your naming opportunity ideas.
