Did You Know?

  • Cash is often the most convenient form of giving.  Cash gifts are fully deductible for federal income tax purposes, provided deductions are itemized.
  • 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.
  • Securities may be made as outright gifts or as a payment on a pledge. Stock certificates may be reassigned or transferred.
  • Planned giving allows you to leave a legacy by making a charitable gift now or from your estate.
  • Endowed funds are a dependable and perpetual source of support, since the principal is invested and only a portion of the earnings is spent annually.
  • Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. To see if your company has a matching gift policy, visit the Matching Gift web area.
  • Honoring a family member, friend, colleague, classmate, or faculty member with a gift is a touching way to pay tribute to that loved one.
  • Alternatives to monetary gifts such as equipment or books are always appreciated
