Ways to Give

Outside of making a direct gift, there are many different ways to contribute to the College of Education’s students, faculty, and programs. Explore the following sections to determine what is right for you. Feel free to contact the Advancement staff at any point for more information.

  • Endowments: An endowment is a permanent fund that lasts in perpetuity to support a purpose of your choosing. The principal of your gift is invested and grows over time, while quarterly distributions provide a steady, reliable source of income to your chosen program. This ensures that your gift will provide benefits to the College of Education year after year, generation after generation. Learn more»
  • In-Kind Giving: The College of Education welcomes in-kind gifts (contributions of goods and services) such as equipment, computer hardware and software, books, artifacts, and art. While in-kind donations are often received from businesses and corporations, individual donors also contribute many types of in-kind gifts. Learn more»
  • Planned Giving: Planned giving can be a creative and flexible strategy in your estate and charitable planning. Some planned gifts provide you with income, and many of them can reduce your taxes. The greatest benefit, however, lies in knowing that you are supporting work at the College of Education that is important to you and helpful to others. Learn more»
  • Real Estate: If you own property that is fully paid off and has appreciated in value, you can deduct the fair market value of your gift, avoid all capital gains taxes, and remove that asset from your taxable estate. Learn more»
  • Gifts of Securities & Stocks: Securities, stocks, and mutual funds can easily be transferred and donated to the College of Education, possibly resulting in tax advantages. Learn more»
