With December 31 upon us, please consider making a gift to Transylvania. In order to ensure that your gifts are processed before the 2015 tax deadline, we encourage you to complete your charitable giving before December 31, 2015. Please note that Transylvania’s campus will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 18, 2015, and reopen Monday, January 4, 2016.
