Matching Gifts

Hundreds of companies match their employees' gifts. You receive credit for your matching gifts for recognition purposes.

Securities

Securities can be transferred directly from your brokerage account to the University's account. Securities are recorded based on the mean market value of the stock on the date of gift, which is the date you relinquish control of the stock.  Please be sure to specify that your gift should be directed to the School of Education Foundation.

Bequests and Gift Planning

Gift planning may enable you to satisfy personal financial planning needs in addition to providing the University with important, long-term support. Some gift plans may provide income for life (or a term of years), an immediate income tax charitable deduction, avoidance of capital gains tax, and professional asset management (if the University serves as trustee). Options include pooled income funds, charitable remainder trusts, and charitable gift annuities, as well as gifts of real estate, life insurance, and retirement assets.
