Funding Your Gift
Your gift may be made in the form of cash, certificates of deposit, stocks and bonds, mutual funds, real estate, or personal property such as art, fine furnishings, and rare books and manuscripts. Different assets offer different tax advantages. Please consult your financial advisor to select the best way to fund your gift.
Gifts will be automatically transferred from your bank account on or about the 10th of each month for as long as you indicate on your form.
To make a gift via check, mail a completed form with your check to the address provided.
Make a pledge of your future support to the University. You can include your initial gift now, or set a date when you would like to begin your support. Set up reminders to aid in your planning.
Many companies encourage their employees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. At the University, donors receive credit for their employers’ matching gifts. The impact of corporate matching support can be enormous.
The process of giving mutual fund shares takes a few more steps and more time to complete. In general, mutual fund companies do not allow shareholders to transfer mutual fund shares outside of the fund. The shares must be transferred to an account within the fund created for the University.
Gifts of personal property—works of art, manuscripts, rare books, and antique furnishings—help support teaching and scholarship and can greatly enhance the quality of life on the Grounds. Also learn about making a Gift In Kind.
Real estate can be contributed as an outright gift or to finance a planned gift, such as a charitable trust. Learn about available options.
It’s easy to arrange online to have your credit card billed every month, quarter or year. Simply click “I would like to make a recurring gift” on the online gift form.
Gifts of stocks and mutual funds are coordinated by Gift Accounting at the Office of Advancement. The University will direct proceeds from the sale of these assets to any school or program you wish.
