Gifts by Pledge
Make a pledge to donate to GCU on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis. Your pledge can be made using your preferred payment method.
Establishing an endowment is one of the most powerful ways to guarantee sustainable financial support that will impact generations of GCU students to come. Endowments are permanent gifts that are invested and each year a portion of the return is made available to fund the GCU initiative of the donor’s choice. An endowment can be created with a minimum gift of $25,000.
Employer Matching Gifts
Many employers offer matching gift programs to encourage employees to make charitable contributions and will match them dollar for dollar. Matching gifts are a great vehicle for donors to maximize the impact of their gift. Ask your employer today to find out if your company has a matching gift program.
You can also make an in-kind donation to GCU. Non-cash donations accepted include tangible personal property such as vehicles, real estate, stocks, bonds and mutual funds.
Gifts of Securities, Real Estate and Personal Property
Transferring securities, either stocks or bonds, allows you to make a gift to the university and receive a charitable deduction equal to the full fair market value. You also may avoid paying a capital gains tax on your charitable contribution.
Gifts of real estate can have special benefits for both the donor and the recipient. You may give real estate as a current gift and receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the gift. Gifts must meet certain criteria in order to be accepted by the university.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Memorial and tribute gifts are an opportunity to commemorate a special person. This type of a gift makes a lasting tribute in addition to a great impact on GCU students and community.
