DOUBLE OR TRIPLE YOUR GIFT

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will double or even triple any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. We will do the rest. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.

SECURITIES

CSU Foundation is happy to accept gifts of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other securities. Some donors may even accrue tax advantages for donating appreciated securities. Please consult with your tax adviser to determine tax-deductibility of your gift.

Gifts are valued based on the average of the high and low prices on the day the securities are received in CSU Foundation accounts or at CSU Foundation offices.

REAL ESTATE

Donated homes, land, and other types of real estate can help Colorado State University reach its goals.

GIFTS-IN-KIND

A gift of personal property includes equipment, inventory, books, works of art, or other tangible property. Gifts of personal property are accepted by Colorado State University. Gifts-in-kind will be used to benefit the college, department, or center as designated by the donor.

Acceptance of the gift is based on whether Colorado State University can use the gift in furtherance of its mission. Consideration will be given to the cost of accepting and maintaining the gift as well as costs associated with potential resale of the gift.

Depending upon the donor’s tax circumstances, a charitable deduction may be claimed if the gift is accepted for the University’s tax-exempt purposes. If a donor is going to claim a deduction of more than $5,000, IRS Form 8283 is required.

ENDOWMENT

Endowment funds at Colorado State University are vital for recruiting the best scholars for chairs and professorships that enhance CSU’s mission to provide a world-class education.
