There are many ways to make a charitable contribution to Rivier University. Gifts and pledges may be tailored to achieve your charitable objective and provide you with tax benefits.
Cash Gifts or Pledges
Cash contributions allow you to deduct the amount of your gift for income tax purposes. Multi-year pledges allow many donors to increase the size of their gifts, with payments extended over several years.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of appreciated securities are deductible at fair market value on the day they are transferred to the University. Appreciated securities may be used as outright gifts or to fund planned gifts.
These gifts can provide a reliable stream of income for yourself and your loved ones. In addition, you can avoid or reduce capital gain taxes on long-term appreciated assets, such as securities and real estate. Many different assets can be used to fund a planned gift including real estate, closely held stock, and life insurance.
Gifts of life insurance can be made to the University. You may also purchase an insurance policy with Rivier University as the owner and sole beneficiary. All premiums you pay are tax deductible.
Donations of goods and services enhance the University and enrich the student experience.
