Gifts That Reduce Your Taxes

You can help make students’ dreams a reality at The University of Olivet. What’s more, you can also enjoy tax benefits from these gifts now, or you can establish a future gift that will pass tax benefits along to your loved ones.

Stocks and Securities

When you give stock or securities (stock, bonds, mutual funds), you may be eligible for a double tax benefit: 1) You receive an income tax deduction for the full, present, fair market value of the assets and 2) you may completely avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation of the assets. This is one of the easiest gifts to give and one of the most useful in accomplishing your philanthropic goals.

Retirement Assets

A gift of your retirement assets, such as an employee retirement plan, IRA, or tax-sheltered annuity, is an excellent way to make a gift. A gift of these assets can shield you or your heirs from taxes while funding The University of Olivet.

Life Insurance

Transfer ownership now:

To make an impact on our mission today, irrevocably designate The University of Olivet as owner and beneficiary of an existing life insurance policy. If your policy is paid up, you will receive an immediate income tax deduction based on the policy value.

If your policy is not yet paid up, you will make contributions of cash to The University of Olivet to cover future premium payments. For any continuing premium payments you make, you will receive a charitable deduction in the year of the payment.

Name us as a beneficiary:

You can name The University of Olivet as a beneficiary of all or a portion of your life insurance policy. With this gift arrangement, The University of Olivet will receive the proceeds of your policy when you pass away. You can change your beneficiary at any time.

This gift is easy to arrange — simply request a beneficiary designation form from your plan administrator.

Personal Property

A gift of artwork, coins, antiques, or other personal property can be an excellent way to support The University of Olivet. The tax benefits of the gift depend on whether The University of Olivet can use the property in a way that is related to its mission. Contact us to learn more about this type of gift — we would be happy to help you find the option that best fits your philanthropic goals.
