Transferring securities—stocks, bonds or mutual funds—that have been held longterm to Union College allows you to receive a charitable deduction for the full, fair market value of the securities. Giving securities that have appreciated in value also allows you to avoid capital gains tax.
You can donate a life insurance policy to Union College or simply name the college as the beneficiary. For the gift of a paid-up policy, you will receive an income tax deduction equal to the lesser of the cash value of the policy or the total premiums paid. To qualify for the federal charitable contribution deduction on a gift of an existing policy, you must name us as owner and beneficiary. To make a significant future gift at a relatively low cost, you may do so through a new life insurance policy.
You can contribute a non-cash gift of tangible property. Examples include office equipment and furnishings, supplies for medical mission trips, vehicles, teaching supplies and equipment, and musical instruments. The college reserves the right to accept or refuse a gift-in-kind. A letter will be provided for those gifts accepted; however, the donor will be responsible for determining the charitable value of the gift.
Many corporations or businesses match their employees' charitable gifts with a contribution of equal or greater value. A matching gift may be initiated by completing your company's matching gift form and sending it with your gift to Union College. Check with your human resources or personnel office to determine if your employer has a matching gift program and if your gift qualifies for a corporate match.
