Gifts of Stock
Gifts of appreciated securities can be advantageously donated directly to Emmanuel College (rather than selling them and donating the proceeds). If you own appreciated securities, you can claim the full market value of the donated shares as a charitable deduction on your income tax. Consult your tax advisor for more information regarding gifts of appreciated securities. Download transfer instructions » Notify us of your gift »
Matching gifts can double, or even triple, your gift to Emmanuel. Simply complete and submit your employer's matching gift form and include with your donation. Matching gifts are credited to your personal giving history for giving club qualification. Often times employers will also match gifts from retirees and spouses as well.

For many individuals, a gift made through a will or trust is a realistic way to make a substantial contribution to Emmanuel. These gifts are valued as a commitment by donors who share Emmanuel College's vision for the future. Your attorney or legal advisor can assist you with terminology needed to establish your bequest. The College can also provide you with the language required to establish a bequest.
There are also a variety of ways to make a significant gift to Emmanuel College today and receive income during your (or a designee's) lifetime.
Charitable Gift Annuities
A charitable gift annuity is both a gift to Emmanuel College and an annuity for you. When you transfer cash or securities to Emmanuel College, you receive a guaranteed income for life. Income is based on your age at the time the gift is made and the amount of the gift. Additional advantages of a gift annuity include partially tax-exempt income and a charitable income tax deduction for a portion of your contribution.
Individual Charitable Trusts
An individual trust is an excellent way to make a significant gift to Emmanuel College now and still retain the use of the income from your capital, stock, or other assets. You also enjoy current tax benefits. Such a trust may be managed by a trustee of your choice.
Please consult with your attorney or tax advisor regarding planned or estate gifts.
