Making Your Gift


Does your employer match gifts?

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions or volunteer hours made by their employees. To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, please enter your employer’s name below.

Other assets listed below can be used to make a gift to the ECSU Foundation Inc. to benefit Eastern students and university programs. If you have any questions about transferring these assets, feel free to contact us (see contact information above).

  • Appreciated stock – can be especially attractive because of enhanced tax savings. Other securities such as mutual funds and some bonds can also be gifted.
  • Appreciated real estate
  • Gifts In Kind – gifts of property are deductible within guidelines of the IRS and can especially benefit university departments

Most of these assets can be used for planned gifts as well as current outright gifts. Careful gift planning can result in special tax benefits to the donor, sometimes even increased income. Often they can solve special estate or tax planning problems that confront donors. For additional information, visit the “Planned Giving” page.
