Ways to Give
Support the Purchase College Foundation through outright gifts, deferred gifts, or a combination of the two. The most common types of gifts are contributions by check, credit card, or stock. The College can also accept gifts of real estate, gifts-in-kind, and other assets. Endowed gifts create a permanent legacy and play a critical role in enabling the College to achieve its mission by providing stable financial support now and in the future.

IRA Charitable Rollovers (also known as Qualified Charitable Distribution)
Purchase College faculty and staff may pledge a 100% tax-deductible gift to the Purchase College Foundation by authorizing a deduction of the gift amount from a payroll account.
A named endowment fund may be established with a minimum gift of $25,000 from one or more donors to the Purchase College Foundation and Charitable Entities, including the Friends of the Neuberger Museum of Art. The endowment is invested to generate financial support in perpetuity for a purpose or purposes mutually agreed to by the organization and the donor(s). Learn more.
Planned giving allows your generosity to outlive you.
Planned gifts can be of cash or securities, but it’s more common to give them in the form of will bequests, charitable trusts, and gift annuities. The intended purpose can be to endow a scholarship or faculty chair, to support a specific academic program, cultural organization, or lecture series, or simply for “bricks and mortar” costs.
Some of the most transformational gifts in the history of philanthropy have come in the form of a bequest contained in a person’s will or revocable (living) trust. Other types of planned gifts—including gift annuities, charitable trusts, gifts of life insurance, retained life estates, and various revocable or irrevocable gift agreements—will create an enduring history and bright future for Purchase College.
The essential part of a planned gift transcends the method of giving. The intent behind the gift—the determination to make a significant difference in a student’s education or the College’s potential—creates an outstanding legacy for you, while helping to assure a dynamic future for the College.
Our Gift Acceptance Policy requires that we review donated assets other than cash or marketable securities.
Gifts in-kind are non-cash contributions of goods or services including artwork, supplies, vehicles, computers and other equipment, and more.
