Make a gift to support Augusta State University
Augusta State University is grateful for significant support from alumni and friends. Private support plays a vital and significant role in helping Augusta State University mold the leaders of tomorrow.
Your gift can be made in several ways - with cash, securities, real estate and personal property. Please note that many corporations offer matching-gift programs that double or triple the value of donations from their employees. All contributions are valuable, regardless of size, and all gifts offer tax advantages to donors.
Augusta State University accepts many different types of gifts, which are fully tax deducible in the year they are made. Gifts are accepted by the ASU Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization set up to receive and manage gifts on behalf of the university.
The easiest way to support ASU is to make a gift of cash. You can donate online using your credit card through our secured site. You can also download a pledge card and mail it in with your check payable to the Foundation. Indicate on the pledge card the specific program you wish to support. If no program is specified your gift will support the ASU annual Fund. Your gift is fully deductible if you itemize it for federal income tax purposes up to 50% of your adjusted gross income. If your total gift exceeds this amount the excess may be carried forward for tax purposes for up to five years. Contact us for more information on making cash gifts.
Tdditional means of giving such asa Bequest, a Charitable Gift Annuity, a Charitable Lead Trust, and Life Insurance Gifts can be made by contacting our Planned Giving Professionals.Contact us for more information on planned gifts. Please visit our planned giving gift guide for more information.
Gifts of securities, especially appreciated stock held for more than one year, provide tax savings for you and support for ASU. By making this gift you can eliminate a capital gains tax while receiving a tax deduction for the full fair-market value on the date of the gift. The value of the gift may be deducted up to 30% of adjusted gross income, with a an additional five years carry over. The ASU Foundation will sell the securities as soon as possible and apply the funds wherever you specify. You many also donate securities you have held for less than on year, but your deduction will typically be based on what you paid for the securities. Contact us for more information on making gifts of securities.
Gifts of personal property (artwork, books, vehicles, jewelry, etc.) can be donated to ASU and you can be entitled to an income tax deduction. A gift of personal property must be professionally appraised and then reviewed by the ASU Foundation before the donation can be finalized. Contact us for more information on making gifts-in-kind.
Gifts of real estate that you have owned for many years can be advantageous for you and ASU. If you donate the property, instead of selling it, you can avoid a potential capital gains tax and realize a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of the real estate.Contact us for more information on making gifts of real estate.
