Recurring Gifts

The recurring gift program is an easy, secure and convenient way to support Harc.  Select an amount to be billed to your credit card each month, every-other-month, or quarterly.

Recurring gifts reduce administration costs, allowing more of each gift to be used immediately to support the top priorities at Harc.  And because your annual gift will be smaller monthly amounts, a recurring gift may allow you to increase your yearly contribution to the next giving level.

Please contact Cynthia M. Turner,Executive Assistant Office of the President at (860) 218-6054
cturner@harc-ct.org for more information on starting a recurring gift plan.

 Thank you for your generous support!
