GIVING BY CHECK

You can make your gift by mail using a check.  Simply complete this form (pdf), print, and mail to Taylor (address above).  Please make the check payable to Taylor University.

GIVING BY ELECTRONIC GIFT TRANSFER

Giving to the University is now more convenient than ever, saving you time and effort, thanks to the electronic gift program. Now you can make a gift to Taylor without having to write and mail a check or receive pledge reminders.

This program allows donors to designate a specific amount to be automatically withdrawn from their bank account each month (minimum $25). The amount is then transferred to Taylor University. The transfer will appear on your monthly bank statement. The process is similar to direct depositing a paycheck.  Donations will be deducted on the 15th of the month.

To set up an electronic funds transfer, please contact Laura Key.

GIVING BY GIFTS-IN-KIND

Gifts-in-kind refer to non-cash donations of materials or long-lived assets. For Taylor University, examples would include items such as art objects, prized collections, antiques, products, computer software and hardware, office products and supplies, educational materials, etc. Gifts-in-kind can be designed as one time gifts or as on-going programs.

All gifts-in-kind to Taylor University must be approved by the offices of University Advancement, Business and Finance, and the department responsible for receiving the actual gift.

Current tax law requires that Taylor University issue a receipt indicating that a gift-in-kind has been received. Taylor does not value the gift-in-kind on the gift receipt. Instead, the donor is responsible for obtaining the fair market value at the time of the gift. If the gift-in-kind is valued by the donor at more than $5,000, then an appraisal must be obtained by the donor.

Please contact us regarding questions concerning specific gifts-in-kind. Please contact a tax accountant concerning how these donations may apply to your individual tax issues.

MEMORIAL GIFTS

Taylor University is grateful for gifts specifically designated "in memory of" loved ones, family members, friends, faculty members, classmates, or those who have left an unforgettable legacy.

Families may choose to designate any size gift as a memorial gift. However, for a gift of $1,000 you may memorialize a loved one on the “Great Cloud of Witnesses” Wall in the Memorial Prayer Chapel.

Donors may also chose to make a gift “in honor of” a living loved one or friend as a tribute to that person’s on-going life of service.

If you would like to have Taylor University envelopes available at a funeral or memorial service, or would like more information on a specific gift idea, please contact Kelsey Mitchener at kelsey_mitchener@taylor.edu, or call 800-882-3456, ext. 5114.

MATCHING GIFTS

Many companies offer employees matching gift initiatives that can double or even triple your contribution to Taylor.  If you are unsure if your company qualifies for matching gifts, please contact Laura Key for assistance.
