Other Types of Gifts
Gifts of Securities
In addition to providing a significant gift, donating long-term appreciated securities enables you to avoid potential capital gain taxes and receive a charitable income tax deduction.
Gifts of securities often confer significant tax benefits on a donor. For example, contributions of appreciated securities held for over a year are generally deductible at market value, regardless of what the donor paid for them; moreover, the capital gains tax is avoided through such a gift.
To transfer securities to the MNU Foundation electronically via the Depository Trust Company (DTC), please provide the following information to your broker:
DTC #: 0057
Account Name: MidAmerica Nazarene University Foundation
Edward Jones Account No.: 925-04131
Donor Name and Address: ______________
It is our desire to appropriately acknowledge the generosity of our donors in a timely and accurate manner. To assist with the identification of your gift, please ask your broker to include your name and address in the DTC transfer instructions. In addition, please notify our Associate Vice President, Tim Keeton, of your gift and intended designation via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (913.971.3600).
As soon as a securities gift is received and matched to a donor, the MNU Foundation will send an acknowledgment letter stating the nature of the gift, the gift valuation date, and the gift valuation amount.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Memorial and tribute gifts are a wonderful way to honor a loved one in a significant, lasting way. When you make a memorial gift in someone's honor, MNU will send an acknowledgement to the family or to whomever you specify.
Any type of gift can be designated as a memorial gift. Families who are considering memorial gifts often need time to consider how the funds received should be used. We have developed three options for families to consider when determining how memorial gift will be used. To learn more, download our Guide to Memorial Gift Options.
Endowed scholarships enable you to create an ongoing investment in the University. They also introduce a more personal element since endowed scholarships can carry a family name or can be named in honor or memory of a beloved faculty or family member, and they benefit specific students.
A family can extend its love by establishing a permanent family endowment fund at MNU that reflects the donor family both in name and ideals. A family endowment is a powerful philanthropic and stewardship tool. It can bear the family name and future donations can be made on special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and as Christmas gifts.
