Can be fulfilled by cash, check, commodities or appreciated property. Donors are advised to consult with their financial advisor if making gifts without using cash or check. Please ask if your employer has an employee-giving matching program.
A Pledged Gift – A pledged gift allows donors to give at their highest capacity. A pledge can be fulfilled over a period of three years based on the schedule options and type of payment that works best for the donor. Campaign managers will send payment reminders. Donors will receive tax-deductible gift receipts for each payment made.
An Outright Gift – An outright gift of cash is the simplest and most common way of giving. Outright gifts also include IRA required mandatory distributions, appreciated securities, bonds, personal assets; real property assigned ownership or beneficiary status in paid life insurance with cash value – in any single form or in combination.
Gifts of Stock – Many of these kinds of gifts hold specific capital gains tax advantages and deductibility for the donor.
