Other Ways To Help

Outright Gift of Cash is the easiest gift to make. To qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction for this calendar year, just make your check payable to College Settlement and mail it on or before December 31, 2019.

A gift in honor or memory is a special way to acknowledge and remember the important people in our lives. When a Memorial or Honor gift is received by College Settlement, a letter is sent to the donor to acknowledge the gift, as well as to any persons that the donor indicates should receive acknowledgment of the gift.

A matching gift increases the value of your gift at no additional cost to you, allowing you to double or triple the impact of your gift.

Gifts of Securities | While gifts of cash are simple to make and fully deductible, gifts of securities are frequently the most advantageous donation from a tax perspective. Gifts of long-term, appreciated securities are fully deductible up to a maximum of 30% of your adjusted gross income.
