WAYS TO GIVE
Give a one time gift
Gifts of stock
Gifts of marketable stocks or mutual fund shares that have appreciated can have an immediate impact on a college or program at WSU while creating a favorable income tax deduction for you based on the assets’ current value.
Planned gifts or estate gifts are an effective way to manage your affairs, plan for the future, and make a meaningful gift to Washington State University. Common gift planning strategies include bequests, charitable gift annuities or remainder trusts, donor advised funds, gifts of life insurance, or real property. Many gift planning strategies can provide a reliable source of income and/or tax benefits for the donor.
Creating an endowment
An endowment establishes a fund managed by the WSU Foundation that provides perpetual, annual support for Washington State University. A gift to establish an endowment creates a lasting legacy in your name or the name of someone you wish to honor, and the gift benefits a WSU program, area or department of your choice.
Endowments can be established to support a variety of purposes. Some endowments support scholarships to attract and retain high-ability students, students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to attend college, or graduate students leaving the work force to further their education. Endowments can support EECS’s highest priorities: emerging technologies, graduate fellowships, professorships, operating expenses, lecture series, equipment replacement, scholarships or faculty recruitment and retention. These are just a few of the options available and there are several options for funding endowments that allow you to use various assets over time. We’ll work with you to establish an endowment that supports your passion at WSU.
All endowed funds are established by a written gift use agreement between the donor, Washington State University, and the WSU Foundation to ensure that your endowment will only be used for the purpose(s) you designate. Your gift is invested prudently, so the endowment’s buying power is preserved over time. Each year, a percentage of your endowment’s market value is used to benefit the area designated in your gift use agreement. A gift of $25,000 or more, fundable over five years, will establish an endowment at Washington State University.
Many employers will match their employees’ gifts to Washington State University. Some employers will even match the gifts of retired employees, spouses, parents, and even gifts from their board of directors. All matched funds will be designated to the area to which you originally contributed your gift. Search for matching gift opportunities.
