TYPES OF GIFTS n

OUTRIGHT GIFTS can be designated (restricted) for a specific campaign initiative, or can be unrestricted. Unrestricted gifts are especially important and can be used for the area of greatest need.

n

PLEDGES can be paid over a period of three to five years with cash or marketable securities. Pledges must be in writing.

n

MATCHING GIFTS are those contributed by individual donors that can be matched in whole or in part by your employer. Corporations determine how a gift may be matched. Obtain a matching gift form from your participating corporate human resources office and send it to Pacific along with your gift.

n

DEFERRED AND LIFE INCOME GIFTS allow the donor to make a more substantial commitment through a bequest or life income plan that will help meet the needs of the donor or the donor’s family. Some examples of these are charitable gift annuities, charitable trusts, retained life estates of homes or life insurance.

n

IRA DISTRIBUTIONS can be made to the University for up to $100,000 per year tax free.

TYPES OF ASSETS n

CASH can be made in one payment or committed through monthly, quarterly or annual deductions from your debit or credit card. Life income gifts may also be funded with cash.

n

SECURITIES are often long-term appreciated assets—stocks, bonds and mutual funds—that may provide savings in capital gains tax when used to make a gift. Donors receive a tax deduction based on the fair market value at the time of the gift.

n

REAL ESTATE contributions can include residential, commercial or undeveloped property.

n

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY is a gift of artwork, books, jewelry, antiques or other property that can be used for educational purposes or are valuable to the University in some other way.
