Securities and Retirement Assets

You can donate securities such as stocks or bonds. If you are at least 70., you can make a charitable gift directly from your IRA without incurring federal income tax.

In-Kind Gifts

Unique assets such as a book collection, equipment, software, art or real estate may be given in kind by transferring property ownership to the Eberly College. 

Matching Gifts

You may work for a company that matches employees’ gifts to higher education. These programs are a great way to multiply your support. 

Support an Existing Fund

We have many funds already established to support all areas of the Eberly College. You can designate your contribution to support students or faculty, advance research or improve facilities. 

Create an Endowment 

We can also tailor your interest to a specific need by creating an endowment that will provide long-term support. Endowments may require different minimum gifts depending on the purpose. 

Ways to Give Tomorrow

Gifts through a Will

A bequest is a gift made through your will. It can be for a specific amount or asset, a percentage of the estate or the remainder of the estate.

Gifts by Beneficiary Designation 

Retirement Fund Assets

You can name the Eberly College as a beneficiary of your retirement fund assets. 

Life Insurance 

You can name the Eberly College as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy. A charitable giving rider will pay out an additional percentage of the policy at no additional cost to you.

Gifts that Pay Income

Gift Annuity

A charitable gift annuity is a contract that will pay you or a beneficiary a fixed amount for the rest of your life. If you don’t need your income stream yet, you can create a deferred gift annuity with a future payment date. 

Trusts 

A charitable remainder annuity trust makes annual payments at a fixed percentage of the trust’s value. It provides a fixed amount for a term or for life. 

A charitable remainder unitrust pays you or a named beneficiary a fixed percentage of the trust’s principal. Additional gifts can be made at any time. 

Gifts that Protect Assets

We have many funds already established to support all areas of the Eberly College. You can designate your contribution to support students or faculty, advance research or improve facilities. 

Gifts with Retained Use

Retained life estates allow you to give your home or other property to the Eberly College while retaining the right to use the property while you are alive.
