Gift Types


Pledges enable a donor to plan a personal giving program that is both convenient and tax-wise. A pledge may enable a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have otherwise been possible. Terms for payment on pledges are flexible and at the option of the donor.

Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be reassigned directly to the organization or may be transferred through the donor's broker. The mean market value on the date of the transfer will determine the value of the gift for tax purposes. It is best to consult with our Development Specialist, Juliette Murdock before a transaction is made. Gifts of appreciated securities are tax deductible.

Planned Gifts
In certain instances, it may be preferable from an estate, financial, and tax planning perspective to consider long-term gift planning as the best way to make a gift. This can be accomplished through various gift instruments, such as charitable remainder trusts, gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, and bequests.

Once established, an endowed fund is a dependable and perpetual source of support, since the principal is invested and only a portion of the earnings is spent annually.

Matching Gifts
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. Find out if your company has a matching gift program.

Gifts in Memoriam/Gifts in Honor of
Honoring a family member, friend, colleague, classmate, or faculty member with a gift is a touching way to pay tribute to that loved one.

Gifts in Kind
Alternatives to monetary gifts such as equipment and supplies are always appreciated.
