Ways To Give

Ways To Give

Current Gifts


Making a donation of cash for special purposes, annual giving, or endowment is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card. You may find it most convenient to give online.

Giving tip: Making a multi-year pledge increases the impact of your giving considerably. For your convenience, pledges may be paid over a three-year period.


Stock, Bonds and Other Securities

A gift of securities may offer you the chance to help Monmouth College while realizing many important tax benefits for yourself. Donors avoid capital gains tax on gifts of appreciated stock or bonds.


Real Estate

Giving real estate to fund a gift allows you to preserve your cash assets, receive tax and income advantages, and make a larger charitable gift than anticipated.

Giving Tip: A bequest is the simplest type of planned gift to make, but if you want to make a gift and receive income for the future, a Charitable Gift Annuity may be the answer. Call 888-827-8268 to request a Monmouth College Planned Giving brochure or the Planning Your Legacy booklet for a detailed description of gift options to consider. This information is also available online.
