The date your credit card gift is effective for tax purposes is the date the card is charged.  Credit card gifts must be processed by midnight on December 31, 2014 to be eligible for a 2014 charitable deduction. Therefore, we recommend that you use our fast and secure online giving form for immediate processing.  Alternatively, you may call 901-825-9083 to make your credit card gift over the phone.

By Check:

Please print the online giving form and mail it with your check made payable to the University of Memphis Foundation to:

Department 238
University of Memphis Foundation
P.O. Box 1000
Memphis, TN 38148-0001

A gift made by check mailed via U.S. Postal Service with a postmark and check date on or before December 31, 2014 will be counted for 2014 regardless of when it is received at the University of Memphis.

photoBy Transferring Appreciated Securities:

If you have appreciated stock, you may be able to make a very tax-wise gift to the U of M Foundation.  When you give appreciated stock, you may be able to take a deduction for its full value and avoid the capital gains taxes that would be incurred if you had sold it. 

Transferring stock to the U of M Foundation is simple.  Please call 901-825-9083 for instructions.

This is the time.
