It’s the season of giving, and you can put your smart phone to work for Roanoke.

Roanoke’s web team and Roanoke Fund folks have optimized the “Give to Roanoke” webpage for mobile use. It’s a secure and convenient way to keep the Roanoke experience available and affordable for today’s students.

Roanoke is ahead of the curve in offering these kinds of giving options that make it easier for alumni, parents and friends to support the College.

Here’s how it works. You need your smart phone and credit card.  If you have a bookmark for, go to the page and select the “Give Now” icon. Or, point your phone’s web browser to The page will recognize that you are using a smart phone, and it will take you to the secure mobile version of the giving page. A mobile-friendly screen will ask you a few questions.

You can make a gift of any size, from $10 to $10,000 or more. Want to spread your gift out over several months? Select “recurring/monthly payments.”

So, even a $10 monthly gift becomes an annual gift of $120. It all adds up to good things for Roanoke students.

To receive any tax advantages for your end-of-the-year giving, the gift must be received by Dec. 31. Using the mobile giving, you have until 11:59 p.m. to get your gift in under the Dec. 31 deadline.

Here’s another way to celebrate Giving on the Go. Use the mobile site to make a gift of $25 or more by Jan.  31, 2013, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a mini-iPad. The winner will be announced in early February.  Reunions are coming up in the spring, and many alumni are already making College gifts. Make yours fast, easy and via mobile device.

Thank you for supporting Roanoke.

And texters, never fear! Giving by SMS/texting is on the horizon Go boldly, Maroons!
